I made this for my husband and all of his buddies a while back, but of course I had to try it first. I have to admit that I had a hard time letting him take it. Rather, I wanted to sit down right there and gobble up the entite thing by myself and pretend that I never made itTaffy Apple Pizza

1/2 cup brown sugar
