#AppleWeek Day One Recipes

Bada Bing Bada Boom
The Easiest Caramel Apples Ever

I decided to start off #AppleWeek by using an all-inclusive caramel apple kit from one of our event sponsors Chocoley. [updated January 2020: unfortunately Chocoley is no longer in business, so I have removed all of the links to their site!] Okay, it's not actually all-inclusive; you do have to provide the apples. But what do you do when 5 pounds of chocolate and 2.5 pounds of caramel show up at your door? You have an impromptu caramel apple party. And, really, the Gourmet Caramel Apple Kit provides everything you need for 25 to 30 caramel apples except for the apples.

This caramel apple kit comes complete with:
  • 5 lb. Brick Chocoley Gourmet Caramel;
  • 5 lb. Chocoley Bada Bing Bada Boom Candy & Molding Gourmet Compound Chocolate (I got the Dark Chocolate);
  • 1/2 lb Piping Bags - White Compound Dipping Chocolate 2 Pack (1 lb Net Wt.) for decorating;
  • 35 Caramel Apple Sticks & 35 Jumbo Cell Caramel Apple Bags & 6 Heavy Weight Dipping Sheets; 
  • AND easy recipes/topping ideas to turn your gourmet apples into something so spectacular that it will make your friends and family call your caramel apples "legendary."
  • Gourmet Caramel Apple Kit from Chocoley
  • apples (I offered three different kinds)
  • assorted toppings (I offered diced candied ginger, other chocolate chips, sprinkles, and quins)


Melt caramel and chocolate in mixing bowls over simmering water.

Secure apples on sticks.

Dip apples in caramel. Let harden.

Then dip in chocolate.

Decorate as desired with sprinkles, quins, and more!

Repeat! Here are a few of the creations...and creators.

Once the caramel and chocolate set, enjoy! Bada bing bada boom - the easiest caramel apples ever!

After the kids were completely sugared up, the adults jumped in and made a few. But, we sliced the apples and shared...unlike the kids who devoured their own creations and went back for seconds. And thirds.

This was a really fun evening. I enjoyed the high quality of the Chocoley products and the ease of setting up a caramel apple party.

Don't forget, you can enter to win the Gourmet Caramel Apple Kit for yourself from Chocoley. Visit my kick-off post and enter the rafflecopter.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
