A fun treat to make for Halloween! You can be very creative with the ingredients you use depending on what you like by using different apples, candies, chocolates, nuts and sprinkles. This is a fun treat you can make with children that they will love!
For this batch I used:
- 8 medium sized red apples
- 20 ounces caramels
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 8 ounces chocolate chips
- purple sugar sprinkles
- M&M candies
- 8 wooden Popsicle sticks
Thoroughly wash the apples to remove any wax and dirt and rub dry. Insert the sticks into the apples by the stem. Line a sheet with waxed paper and you could either grease the parchment paper or do as I did, sprinkle some of the candied sugar where each apple will be placed so the apples do not stick to the parchment paper.
In a medium saucepan melt the caramels with the orange juice under a low heat so it does not burn. Once melted, dip the apples into the caramel. You may just dip half way or all the way to the top of the apple. Depending on the look you want. Allow the excess caramel to drip off and place onto the paper. Allow this to cool and set for several hours.
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. Take an apple and with a fork drizzle the chocolate onto the apple. Place the apple on the paper making sure the bottom is either greased or there is some sugar so the apples do not stick and drizzle the sugar and the candy onto the apple. They will stick to the warm chocolate. Allow to set for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
