Well, if you don't.... stop reading ... but please come back and visit again ! If you do, gather together a few supplies. You will need:
fake styrofoam apples (you should have some of these left over from the 90's, or raid your mama's house)
wooden skewers or you can use candy sticks
white craft glue
a small plastic cup
craft paint ... I used gloss, in gold and brown
If you want to cut your apples in half you will also need
a utility knife, a larger smooth or finely serrated knife
scissors and a pair of wire cutters to cut the skewers
Hold a skewer up next to your apple, decide how long you want the stick to be and then cut them to size. Remove the apple stem, it should pull right out. Push the skewer pointy end all the way down into the apples.
Pour glue into the small plastic cup...amount will depend on how many apples you are going to do, you can start with about 1/4 of the cup, tint it with the paint mixing with a skewer until you have a caramelly color
At this point I cut the plastic cup down, but if you use an empty pudding cup etc. you can skip this altogether. Now using the skewer you stirred with, pour some of the mixture onto the top of an apple. Using the skewer you can put more mixture on and form it onto the apple, if you put a lot on it will drip by itself but I like to have a bit of control and you don't want it to puddle a lot on the bottom...or maybe you do !
I took a utility knife and cut through the top layer of "caramel" and the apple casing. NOW is the time to do this because if the glue dries hard you won't be able to cut the apples in half. Okay, so you don't WANT to cut them in half, then don't worry be happy ! Your "caramel" apples are almost done!!!!
