Let’s Make Easy Black Caramel Apples

main copy-1-3

 

It’s time for a Halloween treat, right? Well today I thought we’d make caramel apples, the treat candied apples wished they were. Beautiful, perfect caramel apples. And while they are perfect, they have to be tweaked slightly for the setting of Halloween, so we’re going to paint ’em black!

 

For this we aren’t making caramel from scratch because you should be well-versed in how I cannot be bothered in doing anything (or to put this in a positive, cool way ‘maximum effect with minimal effort’, so we’re using delicious Werther’s Chewy Toffee caramels.

spooky-mulder

 

Four weeks until Australia doesn’t celebrate a cool holiday that actually has an interesting history behind it. So when I was thinking of posts for this spooky month, I realised there were so many places in the world I would love to go for October and especially Hallows’ Evening.

You Should REALLY Be Using Pinterest’s Secret Boards

the-worst-thing-ive-ever-made-pinterest-secret-boards

 

Be surprised! This isn’t a sponsored or affiliated post, I’m just going to annoy you with how beneficial Pinterest’s ‘secret boards’ are. If you don’t have Pinterest or think it’s for drunk baby boomer mum’s to collect “Live, Laugh, Love” logos for stamping, you’re missing out. It’s a great way to virtually collect and catalogue anything you could ever imagine, saving paper and ink on physical boards and also room on your computer. As you can see from our official Pinterest page, we use it to put our own articles onto Pinterest as well as save anything we find anywhere online and the site itself.

What you might not know is that you can create super secret boards; ones only you or whomever you invite, can see and contribute to.
Here are some uses for those boards, including some of my own!

That’s all you really need to know, isn’t it? An open-world game is about about a group of cats on a remote Maine island that try to figure out where the hell the humans have disappeared to.

 

I cannot stress how insanely excited I am right now.
