So this is my really cool looking melting apple pot. Looks easy enough, right...considering it came with NO instructions. I figure pour in candy, press melt button..DONE! Not so much! When you take the top off their are 2 compartments, kind of like a double boiler but I wan't sure if I was supposed to add water or not. Well I chose to and I ended up putting in too much so when I put on the melting bowl all the water spilled over onto my countertop! JOY!
Ok, time to add the caramel to my melting pot (I had to get over the fact that it looks like my dogs food!). I open the bag, pour it in, place the cover on my apple pot, hit melt then sit and wait.....and wait.....and wait. Finally after what seemed a 1/2 hour I look and all I see is a big ball of melted caramel that looks like it came out of a dirty diaper! What did I do wrong! There was no way to get this onto an apple! I pulled the caramel wrapper from the trash read the directions (genius!). Come to find out I needed to add 1tbl of water. Go figure! Once I did that it all came together!
This is what is was supposed to look like!
I don't remember what kind of apples there were, I think they were in the Gala family but not true Gala apples. I wanted Macintosh but the grocery store had none. Now, I live in NH surrounded by apple orchards and the grocery store had a crapy selection....I know they're not ready for picking yet but they must be somewhere else, right!
