Oh, fall-fabulous, sweet Koralee! I love being in apple orchards, too...the smell is divine!

Only you would think of putting rustic, bent twigs in the candy apples, my friend--perfection!

Wishing you a wonderful, WONDERFUL night!

I don't think I have ever had a red candy apple, but I know that caramel apples are delicious (if I don't eat all the caramel first).

You sure are a busy bee! I've only had the caramel apples, but I bet the red candy covering is every bit as delish! My husband's family was famous for making chocolate popcorn.. now might be a good week to make some! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

The Garden Bell said...

And remind me why I looked at this before lunch. One of my favorite things about fall. Gathering apples for dipping. And goodness knows we have a ton of HoneyCrisps stashed away like little squirrels from our trip up north.

I haven't had a candy apple in so long -- yours look so cute with the sticks as candles.

a peony princess said...

Popcorn balls!! Have not had those since I was a kid! And why not I am now asking myself!

Happy Autumn, Happy Fall!

pollydove said...

Oh my!!!! What fun and the cutest pictures EVER!!! Enjoy all of that goodness my friend! xoxoxo

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
I don't need a lot of reminding to eat my "apple a day" and how much bigger a treat if they could look like your autumn apple beauties! The twig is such a great way to make them! I love that idea!
Popcorn is on my daily "to enjoy" list! I make air popped, but there's nothing like the old fashioned way to make it. Adding caramel would be heavenly!
Wishing you a sweet day tomorrow and a weekend that's "happy dance" worthy!
*xoxo*

Martina said...

Libbie said...

Oh wow! Those candied apples are gorgeous!! You know I have never actually had a candied apple...lots of carmel apples...but not those pretty ones...but you are right...carmel popcorn & candied apples make the perfect pair!

Michaja said...
