We didn't watch BYU trample all over ISU (we only got to see the last 2 minutes), which means I didn't make any delicious party food. We did have family in town and spent the afternoon at a corn maze/fall festival. I kept up the fall them going and made some caramel apples for my family. I used a recipe I found on Our Best Bites last fall. The recipe uses whipping cream and honey and it works like a charm. Because of the honey, it has a little bit different of a flavor than caramel normally has but it is still some tasty stuff. I really like the honey flavor it brings. Also,the fact that it so easy is such a pro that I don't mind the different flavor at all. Besides we covered it with candy and that certainly helped hide the honey flavor. I would certainly make this stuff again, but maybe next time I'll try a more traditional caramel just to see how hard it really is.
