Graveyard Candy Apples – HalloweenCandyApples
Hi 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 😉
We 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.
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 (getting sugar rush then salt rush n all that),
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.
After all these discussions, these Graveyard Candy 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 🙂
In all my excitement to share the recipe with you’ll I actually forgot to mention:
‘Why are we calling these Graveyard Candy Apples a Gourmet Halloween Treat?’
First: To begin with, we used the best organic apples (absolutely plump, red and juicy).
Second:then we used some gourmet white + black chocolate chips (just melt, pour in ziplock and sprinkle all over the apples).
Third: 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)
MnMs and few other fun treat 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 complete 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 the fun doubles when you 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 😉

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time30 minutes
Total Time40 minutes
12 Medium Red Apples - crisp, fresh and juicy
1 Large Pot filled with Hot Water
2 Tbsp White Vinegar
12 Wooden Skewers
Large Tray lined with parchment paper - to hold 12 apples
Toppings - You can Totally Customize as per choice :
2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Black Chocolate Chips - optional
2 Cups Caramel Bits - use any brand and melt as per package instructions.
1 Cup Potato Chips - completely crushed
1 Cup Almonds - thinly chopped
1 Cup Pecans - thinly chopped

Wash the apples with hot water + vinegar (This help it loose the wax on apples for caramel to hold better).
Completely dry the apples and insert the wooden skewers on top of each.
Use a medium deep bowl to melt the white chocolate as per package instructions.
Similarly melt the black chocolate and caramel.
Take one ziplock bag, fill it with melted white chocolate and take another bag and fill it with melted black chocolate.
Take each apple, dip it completely into the caramel and place it on the parchment paper tray.
Complete this process till all the apples are covered in caramel.
Now, take each filling and roll the caramel covered apples into them (almonds, pecans, chips, MnM).
Finally, sprinkle white and black chocolate onto them in any direction/shape (I'm using long and circular lines).
Finally, add the candy eyes on the apple.
Complete the same process for all apples.
Place the apples in fridge for 15 minutes.
If Storing them in Fridge - Wrap them in individual cling wrap and secure it completely.
