Samoa Caramel Apples

Samoa Caramel Apples

So I have decided that this is how I’m eating all my fruit from now on.

Can’t it be a thing?  Fruit covered in caramel, chocolate, and toasted coconut?

Fruit is fruit, people.  It still counts.

An apple a day and all that.  Pretty sure it doesn’t go “an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but ONLY IF IT’S PLAIN”.

These Samoa Caramel Apples came to me in a dream.

Actually, that is a lie.  The only dreams I have are the kind where I dream that I wake up, do laundry and get Jon David ready for school, only to wake up and discover that I’m still in bed and never got up at all!!  Then I’m like, “I thought I already got up and did all this,  how is this possible?  DREAMS ARE EXHAUSTING!!”.
