O and I stuck the popsickle sticks into the apples. I dipped the apples in the caramel, and O rolled them in sprinkles. We put them on buttered (and flattened) cereal bags (instead of waxed paper) to cool.
I put them in glass containers covered with saran wrap overnight, and when I checked them Thursday morning I noticed that I could see a lot of apple and not a lot of caramel. I was in a hurry to go to work, so I didn't think much of it until a few hours later when it suddenly occurred to me that I should have refrigerated the apples overnight. I called my mom, and she confirmed that the caramel had slid off of all of the apples. Oops! We'll be taking grapes and sliced apples for O's party!
