October is here, and with it comes the smell of fresh, crisp air, the beautiful colors of changing foliage, and the sound of crows cawing. Pumpkin and apple picking are in full swing for the autumn season. And what better way to sweeten those freshly picked apples then to coat them in candy!
Caramel apples are a traditional fall-time favorite. The sticky sweetness brings back memories of my mother melting caramel in a double-boiler over the stove so that my sister and I could dip our apple slices into the warm, silky candy.
The Caramel Apple Maker from Hammacher Schlemmer is perfect for candy and apple lovers alike. The stainless steel melting pot is heated electronically so you won’t need the use of a stove. This makes the candy-apple-making-process ideal for children and eliminates the worry of stove-top burns.
The warming setting keeps the melted caramel at the perfect temperature for continuous candy coating. The attachable divided tray encircles the melting pot so that you can have crushed nuts, sprinkles and your other favorite toppings right at your fingertips.
Enjoy your caramel-coated apples warm and gooey, or let them harden for a candy-coated crunch. Homemade candy apples will be the perfect party-favor for your holiday halloween party. You can even customize your own mini candy apples to hand out to your favorite neighborhood trick-or-treaters!
And when your not busy making and decorating apples you can use the Hammacher Schlemmer Caramel Apple Maker as a fondue pot instead! Heat creamy chocolate and dip fruits like strawberries, pineapple chunks and bananas, or melt salty cheeses and dunk breads and veggies.
This versatile melting pot will be a hit with family and friends, and the results will never let you down. And like all Hammacher Schlemmer gadgets, The Caramel Apple Maker includes a free lifetime guarantee. It’s available for $79.95 from www.hammacher.com.
