Making Caramel Apples

Disclosure: Content materials provided by Werthers and Mommyparties
We had the most fun the other day. The kids and I got together with some of our friends and each put together our own idea of the perfect caramel apple. Some were simple, some were elaborate and some looked like they were going to bite us back. However, no matter what the caramel apple looked like, each one tasted equally amazing. 
Creating homemade caramel apples is easy and FUN. We believe that time in the kitchen should be carefully and responsibly shared with our children. But please remember to use caution when dealing with hot items and allow children to only help with the portions of this recipe that you feel meets with their abilities.
