Ingredients
6 Granny Smith apples
6 wooden sticks
1 (14-ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions
Insert wooden sticks 3/4 of the way into stem end of each apple. Place apples on cookie sheet covered with lightly greased aluminum foil. Combine caramels and water in saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until caramel is melted and smooth. Stir in vanilla. Dip each apple into caramel and gently run apples around inside of saucepan to scrape off excess caramel. Combine miniature marshmallows and graham crackers on plate. Roll apples in mixture to coat. Place on aluminum foil and chill. Put chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl. Cook in microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over apples and return them to refrigerator until ready to serve.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
