My kids went back to school last week.  It’s taken me a week to adjust to the change in schedule.
But I won’t tell you about carpools and backpacks, I’ll just tell you about the treats.

I saw this idea for little caramel apples on, from Lindsay at Dollhouse Bake Shoppe (click for original tutorial).  It was so darling, I had to try it!

You know how I feel about the pretzel and caramel combo.  It is salty sweet heaven!  And dipped in chocolate just tops it off.  And it was so easy to do, I can explain it in one picture!

The treats I made were easy!  What was not easy was sending my youngest off to Kindergarten!
It is so bitter sweet!  (I’m mostly bitter-j/k).  I’m sad to see him go everyday, sad that time with my littles is going waaaaay to fast, and sad that I won’t have a sidekick everywhere I go.  But in trying to focus on the positive, I just may be more on top of the blog with all my spare time, I might have the laundry folded and put away everyday, or I might get around to finishing my craft room.

I’ve got big dreams for my kids and myself this school year.  And you can’t go wrong starting the year off with darling little apple cupcakes!  I hope all of you are off to a great start this school year too!

p.s.  I saw some similar ideas for little apples and cupcakes.
