Please message me on facebook & let me know if you would like to receive 5 lbs of caramel OR 4 caramel apples & where you would like your prize to be delivered.

That was fun & I wish I could send all of you caramel apples! We'll do this again soon! :) Tomorrow I'm posting a recipe for CARAMEL DIP, it's easy & yummy. If you didn't win tonight you can make it in a snap & still be in caramel heaven! :)
Congrats to #6 and thanks to everyone for playing!


I wasn't planning to post today but I just found out that my little blog won a contest & I'm EXCITED! I am today's guest blogger at Orson Gygi, a beautiful gourmet kitchen store in Salt Lake City. My prize was a generous gift card to their store OR a BUNCH of fun ingredients to make MORE CARAMEL APPLES! Of course, I chose the Caramel Apple stuff !

Here is a link to my guest post: GHOULISH GOODIES

To kick off my new blog I want to share my prize with YOU! I will pick a random winner late SUNDAY NIGHT, 10/23. The winner can choose to receive either 4 tasty homemade caramel apples like the ones I posted here, made by me OR a 5 lb. block of my favorite caramel to make your own caramel apples! I'll ship the prize anywhere in the U.S. if you don't live close by. Here's how to enter:

1. Like Sprinkle Some Sunshine on Facebook. The link is on the menu to the right.

  6. My favorite is the pumpkin shaped Reese's. I am so excited about your blog and so proud of you for winning!

    I prefer the apples already made. I would just end up losing my job because I would be gnawing on the block of caramel for days on end. :)

  10. Congratulations on winning the Gygi contest! Your apples are great and I love your blog-can't wait to try your recipes!!! My favorite new Halloween candy is the Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses. I've only seen them at Target. Snatch some up if you find them-they go fast. My favorite way to use them is in this yummy recipe:
    Pumpkin Spice Cookies
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1 teaspoons vanilla
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 3/4 cups flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 package Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unwrap Hershey Kisses and set aside.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until light and fluffy.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Gradually add to butter mixture. Mix until just combined.
    4. Place rounded tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a Hershey Kiss into the center of the cookie. Move to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

    Happy Halloween!
