Coated Cauldron Halloween Apples on a stick.
The stick is used as the 'ladle' used to 'stir' what is in the cauldron by the way.
This is really an apple that is coated with a bit of sweetness in my opinion.

Those cupcakes are another fun treat to make for the Halloween season. Both these apples and those cupcakes would go nicely when served together for a party or gathering.
To make the 'ladle' for the apples you will need sturdy skewers for dipping food. You can find a selection of skewers here.
You have probably seed a cauldron in a children's fairy tale or silly movie.
That cauldron was probably associated with a witch.
A cauldron is large black kettle or pot with handles on the sides.
These days, a cauldron is usually on top of some kind of a fire with a witch nearby keeping an eye on it.
For best results, you should use an apple that is large, fresh, and not too sweet.
Also, the apple should be free of dents, worms, and anything you would not want to eat while eating an apple.
Apple choices for caramel apples include:
🍏 Granny Smith
Tips for making candy covered apples.
Using apples that are freshly picked or purchased is really best for this idea. This is because these apples will be more firm and also fresh for eating.
More tips for you
- Remove the stem from the apples and then stick the skewer it place of the stem. Then place the apples in the refrigerator before coating them.
- If your caramel seems too thick to work with, add a teaspoon or two of some kind of milk to thin it out. Do not add too much milk as this can make your caramel too runny to hold however.
- For the chocolate melts, if they seem too thick to work with, add a teaspoon or two of melted coconut oil. This will help the melted chocolate be more uniform and smooth.
Personalize candy coated apples.
These apples are so easy to make and also so yummy to eat!

How to make Chocolate Coated Cauldron Halloween Apples
Yields: 3 Apples
Prep time: 5 minutes
Active time:15 minutes
Idle time:10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Step One: prepare.
Clean and dry the apples as needed. Remove the stems and stick a skewer in each apple. Place the apples in your refrigerator for at least thirty minutes to get cool.
Step Two: the chocolate layer.
Melt the chocolate as directed on the packaging in a shallow microwave safe bowl. I melt mine stopping every 15 seconds to stir.You can add a teaspoon or two of coconut oil as needed to smooth the chocolate out.
Line a rimmed baking sheet or similar item with parchment paper. Take the apples out of the refrigerator and dip each individual apple into the melted chocolate, scrape the bottom of the apples on to the side of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate, and then place the apples on to the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Transfer the apples to your refrigerator for at least 15 minutes to set.
Step Three: the caramel layer.
- Remove the apples from your refrigerator.
- Melt the caramels according the packaging. I melt mine stopping every 15 seconds to stir. A teaspoon or two of milk can help smooth out caramel.
- Stir in the green food coloring while the caramel is still warm.
- While the apples are still cold, use a spoon to cover the tops of each apple with caramel.
- Place the apples back on to the parchment paper at top with the sprinkles.
- Refrigerate the apples until the caramel is set (about 5-10 minutes).
- I store mine in the refrigerator.
Expert tip 👉When you spoon the melted caramel over the top of the apples, it is best to move quickly because the warm caramel can melt the chocolate.
