I started decorating outside tonight, it's not much but since our main decorator is out of the country, it will have to do .This is what I have so far...
this is right outside our front door.
This is Bandit. he was trying to play with the lens cap on my camera, and I got a bit too close, but it shows him in all his sulky glory.
We also made Caramel Apple bites tonight...
they're small and easy to eat.
This is what you need to make them:
4-inch lollipop sticks
Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)
Butterscotch or peanut butter chips
Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)
Small paper candy cups
First, cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle (the pointy end will go into the apple pieces easier). With the melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have a section of apple peel. Push half of a lollipop stick into the peel of each ball. Pat the apple pieces dry.
Melt the chips according to the package directions. Dip and swirl the mini apples in the melted chips, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils, or coconut, if desired. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set.
