Line cookie sheet with wax paper. Ready plastic wrap to wrap your delicious creations.
Follow directions on package to melt caramel.
Push sticks into apples. Nearly lose eye when one stick breaks and splinters fly through air.
Pick up apple on a stick. Apple slips off stick. Put apple back on stick. Repeat. Swear with great creativity. Figure out how to angle apple so it won’t fall off stick.
Dip into sauce that is now hotter than molten lava. Swear obscenely when stick comes out of apple leaving apple bobbing in viscous goo. Go find the mother effin’ tongs.
Realize you’ve destroyed tongs because you found preschooler using them to mess with “things” in toilet. Find the salad spoons instead.
Use salad spoons to dig apples out of caramel sauce that is now hotter than the sun. Sauce drips off of salad spoons and onto your pants leaving a blister the size of your hand. Swear loudly enough that the neighbors think there’s some sort of domestic situation at your house and call police.
Repeat process with remaining apples and/or say to “hell with it” and go buy caramel apples at grocery store.
