Crockpot Caramel Apples

If you don't have a crockpot, please go to Walmart and get one right now! If you don't cook much, or don't think you can, you will when you get a crockpot. You will actually use it! You can eat real food when you come home from work now. I will be adding lots of good, tested crock pot recipes from the freezing winters I spent in Minnesota and Iowa, and you will love them.

With a crockpot, you can pretend you're "going out to eat." You throw everything in, and forget it. The longer you forget it, the better it tastes. Then, you can pretend you didn't make it, because the kitchen is clean and there is one pot waiting with your dinner in it. If you are a husband trying to get on your wife's good side, just put some meat and potatoes in the crockpot with a little water and leave it for 8 hours. Later, share a romantic dinner together.
