easy-halloween-monster-recipeHi Everyone, Hope you had a great weekend and I was so eagerly waiting to share these ‘Graveyard Candy Apples – Gourmet Halloween Treat’ with you’ll. I made a couple of them this weekend for a friend’s daughter to donate at her school fundraising event and they were completely SOLD OUT within the first few minutes (We made 12 of them and all were gone in a jiffy). Seriously, that kiddo was so happy and thrilled, that I promised her a fresh batch soon again 😉graveyard-candy-apples-halloween-applesWe had been going back and forth on Halloween Treat ideas and seriously there were so many delicious ones, but the kiddo wanted something which in her own language “Has Never Ever Ever Been Done – You Know what I mean Aunty”? Off-Course….How could you disappoint that angelic 6 years old with big bright eyes looking at you and knowing you’ll come up with something spectacular. So after 1-2 hours of brainstorming, we decided upon our ‘Graveyard Candy Apples – Gourmet Halloween Treat’. The story doesn’t end here as our lil miss munchkin (as I call her), wanted some sweet-salty combination (I told you, we went through an hour of brainstorming over Halloween Treat – Seriously !). After tasting gazillion candy + salty stuff, I finally told her the best options and we made a truce as my friend (The Mom) was literally giving me those sugar rush warning signals. graveyard-candy-apples-recipeAfter all that discussions, the apples were made and when they picked them up Saturday morning, OMG the look on the munchkins face was priceless ! She gave me such a Big Hug and a slurpy candy filled kisses too (totally adorable). Off they went and within 45 minutes, I was told that they were all sold out and the school would love to buy more for the next round of fundraising event 🙂 easy-halloween-treats-recipeIn all my excitement to share the recipe with you’ll I actually forgot to mention ‘Why are we calling them  – Gourmet Halloween Treat?” To begin with, we used the best organic apples (absolutely plump, red and juicy), then we used some gourmet white + black chocolate chips (just melt, pour in ziplock and sprinkle all over the apples) and the best part – I’ve added an almost peek-a-boo kind of a sweet-salty mix of toppings like potato chips (yep, just crush them), almond, pecan, MnMs and few other fun treats to make this totally worth the nosh! And, yeah, I got those totally eatable candy eyes from a departmental near us. But, Hey, who says you gotta use what I added, this is totally as per your choice and add whatever toppings you like. We absolutely LOVED the Sweet-Salty-Juicy-Crispy flavors in every bite.
But you gotta try them ASAP as they are that good and make them along with kids as they would absolutely love the whole experience of adding their favorite treats to the apples.

Until Next Time ~ XoXo or shall I say ~ SPOOOOOOOOOKYYYYYYY 😉
