When I tell someone I am going to do something, I try my utmost to do it and do it well. So, when I told myself that I was going to make caramel apples for the two youth groups for last night, I wanted to keep my word. I had mentioned to their youth leader that I was going to bring a treat for each of the youth, but she didn't know what it was. I could have brought bags of chips and she'd have not known anything different. But I knew.
I had a package of the cooked caramel covering but knew I'd need a couple more packages to do enough apples for both youth groups. Stacey & I searched for the stuff you cooked on the stove with milk but I couldn't find any. We ended up settling for this other stuff that you heated in the oven and just wrapped around an apple. It was the same brand as the cooked stuff, just a different form so I figured it would be good. When we were checking through the grocery store, the clerk looked at it and said how good caramel apples were. Then she made a comment that kind of surprised me. She said that using the wrap kind of caramel was "cheating"! Hey lady, I couldn't find the cooked stuff and your store only carried the cheating kind. She annoyed me. So I took my cheater wraps home with my three bags of apples. Did I mention that each package of the cheater wraps is $2.99 and only has five wraps in it? Mhm... that's right. Did I also mention that I needed at least 32 caramel apples for the two youth groups? Well, I did. Do the math... that's over $21 in just "cheater" caramel wraps. The cooked stuff was easy 1/3 that price, but I had to keep my word. (To myself, that is.)
