Dress up traditional caramel apples with your favorite candies for an eye-catching Halloween treat. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place candy (except caramels) in separate small bowls. Insert a craft stick into stem end of each apple.

Step 2

Place caramels and cream in a heavy saucepan and heat on medium-low, stirring, until caramels have melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Hold an apple by its stick over pot and spoon caramel over apple to coat, allowing excess to drip back into pot (if caramel gets too stiff, reheat for a minute or 2 to loosen). Press candy into caramel on apple and place apple, stick side up, on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining apples and candy. Let apples stand until caramel has cooled, about 10 minutes.

Brill recipe. I also created these at Xmas time but I mixed it up by using sprinkles around the outside which I purchased from thecakedecoratingcompany online!! They have such a fab range of sprinkles, would highly recommend http://www.thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=709_715&products_id=1700

This recipe was extremely frustrating because all my candy sank on the apples...even after letting the caramel cool all the way.
