Spooky Candy-Coated Apples
Dipping apples in white candy melts gives them a ghostly apperance perfect for your Halloween party.
Cinnamon-Cider Candied Apples
Wash apples well to remove any waxy coating, and dry thoroughly before dipping them. Work quickly, but if the syrup begins to set, you can reheat it over low heat to liquefy.
White Chocolate-Pumpkin Pie Caramel Apples
Dress up caramel or candy apples for Halloween in chocolate and colored sprinkles for treats that will be the hit of the fall carnival.
Notes: Use small apples, such as those for lunch boxes. If making ahead, let coating firm, then enclose apples with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Look for the wood craft sticks at hobby shops; they're also sold with caramel for coating apples. Save leftover white candy for other uses.
