Tips, hints and helps: Keeping caramel on apples 10-9-10

Make sure the surface of your your apples are dry (like VERY dry) before dipping them into the caramel. Store bought apples have a wax coating. Wash the apples with a mild soap and water to get rid of the wax. You also don't want your caramel to be too hot; just hot enough to allow the apple to coat evenly when dipped. You can also make the caramel just a little thicker by cooking it a little longer.

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Using a whisk, add flour to the melted butter and whisk continuously and let cook for a full minute but do not let it get brown.
