In the midst of this movie binge, the roommate had to make a snack for a holiday work competition. So I introduced him to Pinterest where we found this recipe from Gracious Rain. Here is what it looked like: yummmmmmy!
Looks easy...RIGHT? Melt butterscotch, dip apples into them and cover with sprinkles. THANKFULLY the roommate bought THREE bags of butterscotch, so we could burn two whole bags and still have some remaining morsels.
Here's how it went down.
First we scooped out little bits from the apples, and ate the rest of the apple (not in the directions, but highly recommended)
mmm toppings, sprinkles and nuts.
Now, the roommate bought birthday candles to stick into the apples because he was frustrated at the grocery store and couldn't think of ANYTHING else to stick into the apples (the recipe uses suckers and that threw him a curve ball). Thankfully, I had some toothpicks.
Then we read the back of the bag and realized we didn't have the proper mechanism to heat said morsels...and tried the stove again, smaller amounts, lower heat, quick dipping...
Yeah, they don't look anything like Gracious Rain's, but they were GOOD! I think next time, we'll skip the butterscotch and just use caramel. Or maybe skip it all together and just eat another bag of butterscotch chips.
How was your weekend?! Fail at cooking anything yummy?!
