Recently when checking out at Walmart, I saw a display of SNICKERS® candy bars, and was instantly reminded of the hilarious SNICKERS®
commercials and tag line: “You’re not you when you’re hungry!” Since, like I said, this really is the story of my life; cranky one moment and then as soon as I take a bite of food, back to my to my normal carefree, angelic self (Smile!), I was reminded I should eat a small snack (ASAP!!).
One of my favorite fall treats is caramel apples. Since I know I must not be the only one that gets a little grumpy when they are “hangry,” I was inspired by my favorite fall treat and those SNICKERS® bars (you know the candy bar everyone loves because of the gooey caramel, creamy nougat, crunchy peanuts and rich milk chocolate), to create custom DIY Caramel Apple Kits to gift to my friends and family this fall.
providing general directions for both below, but feel free to change up the caramel apple toppings and gift tag sayings to fit your needs. Since SNICKERS® is my topping of choice when I get caramel apples at those fancy candy shops, I had to include some in my goodie bags! Other favorite topping ideas include coconut, nuts, sprinkles… basically pretty much whatever you want!
