8:22 am
i've seen in a while. it's super easy to do. all you need is a muffin tin, melted caramel, toppings, apples. the decision you have to make. instead of me making the choice, i put it on you, and since i was crushed for time this week, i picked the ones that looked like they'd be the easiest to assemble and the easiest to here's what you came up with. first up, white chocolate and brown sugar. she says it's the best combo ever. why that kind of recommendation, how could we not try it out. honey roasted peanuts?

route, recommending crushed pretzels. she wanted to be here when we had the taste test. sorry. i have a feeling you're enjoying the day off anyway. looking for healthy, go for slightly sweetened oats or granola. she says it adds extra crunch. finally, first to suggest smores. it was a favorite for some. apparently combining two desserts into one is a big hit. once my muffin tins were filled up, i sliced my apple. next i grabbed some lollypop sticks, you can find these at the craft store, and placed them into each slice.
8:24 am
melted caramel or melted chocolate, your choice. cover it in your favorite topping and enjoy. the best part about this is you can enjoy many different kinds of candy apples in just one sitting. or if you don't want a whole apple, make it a small snack. remember all of the instructions to this easy snack are on 9news.com/fixthis. . >> and of course count on our fix this team to make the most adorable fancy-looking caramel apples. i'll tell you a little tip. with the apples, since they're sliced, the juicy part, kind of like all the caramel runs off the flesh because it already has a watery base. so if you're going to dip the caramel, eat that right away. >> it may not be a bad idea to
8:25 am
paper towel first. >> i did. i did. >> you've eaten with me before. thank you. i was going to hold a debate party on monday. i feel like these will be the perfect snack. >> debate party. >> do you guys like it. >> i love it. 8:25 on your saturday. we'll be back with sports. we're going though.
