The dip was a long shot. You can see my first attept on the top of this picture. The dip was too runny for my purposes, although it did taste amazing.
The wrap was another bust. The air/apples were too moist and the wrap wouldn't stick to the apple itself. What little bit did stick, didn't do so for long. Certainly not long enough to sit on a two hour buffet.
So, I got my
Success!! They looked (and tasted) exactly the way I wanted them too. Now, the recipe said if humidity is high, (and when isn't it when you're next to the ocean?!) try freezing the apples for a couple of minutes to help solidify the caramel. I figured if this worked, I could easily just take a few out at a time for my work buffet.
Super bummed. I'd be interested to see these work, though, because I've since read two different magazines that are featuring them for October, and they say nothing about humidity or issues with the caramel sliding off the apples.
Regardless, this recipe has been scratched from my menu, leaving me with only pumpkin cheesecake and dark chocolate pots de creme for dessert. I might find a new recipe, but something tells me it's going to come in bulk from Costco!
Keep the faith, my work party is Thursday, so I will start sharing my fall/Halloween recipes as soon as I have pictures of them all.
