This past holiday season was especially busy but I always make it a priority to give away homemade food gifts each year. Chocolate-caramel apples were on the list, inspired by a booth at the Malibu farmers' market that makes killer ones every Sunday.
I'm ONLY sharing this now because I do believe that these shouldn't be limited to holidays-- they make the perfect hostess gifts. Rather than the protocol bottle of wine, these are easy, somewhat healthy and never cease to leave the giftee with a smile on their face.
The combinations are limitless! Popcorn for my movie business buds, almonds/ peanut butter cups for my "nutty" friends, and the list goes on.
Garnish with whatever your little heart desires.
