Caramel Apple Turkey


Today for the first time ever I made homemade caramel!  Yeah!  The even better news is that it wasn’t a complete bomb.  I made some caramel apples to take to some women in my church that I work with.  Since caramel apples can be a little Hallweenie and that ship has long since sailed, I decided to use this idea that I found at Be Different . . . Act Normal, to Thanksgiving-ify things.  {Honestly I was sort of lazy and didn’t make all of them into turkeys.}  

I used this caramel recipe from Get Off Your Butt . . . And Bake!  Greatest recipe/blog/instructions EVER! 


{Action shot, how is it that Sweet and Condensed Milk makes everything soo good?}


I dipped my apples in caramel (of course) and then in semi-crushed up Reese’s Pieces and chopped pecans. 



Wrapped ‘em up in celophane (which I have decided is another one of my crafting musts.  Love that stuff.  Buy the huge roll at Michael’s with a coupon).  Added a ribbon and tag, and they are good to go. 




To make your caramel apple into a turkey:


Cut out feathers, head, beak, gobbler, eyes.  Glue eyes, beak, gobbler, smaller feathers to head.  Attach head feather to toothpicks with tape.


Insert toothpicks into finished cooled caramel apples. 


Here’s to what’s left of Fall!  Or what was left of it, we’ve had our first official snow, good stuff that has actually stuck around and not melted away.  Happy Thanksgiving!


I am linking up to all these awesome parties this week!
