As summer slowly comes to an end, it's time to start thinking about one of my favorite fall treats -- caramel apples! Since caramel apples tend to be a bit messy and sometimes hard to eat, especially for kids, I thought I'd try my hand at the no-mess caramel apple slices recipe I've seen everywhere on Pinterest.

The idea is simple! Cut your apples in half, core out the middle, add lemon juice to prevent browning, and pour in your caramel. But does it work? Is it really mess-free?
