Tribute to Halloween

I don't know about you, but Halloween is my favorite holiday. I'm scared to death of the haunted houses and I don't go nor do I watch super scary movies, but I still love the dressing up part, the decorations and of course hosting fabulous parties.

So in tribute to Halloween whether your hosting a party of looking for something fun to bring I'm going to share my ideas with you. So get ready for some spooktacular fun!

First up are my super cute Candy Apples. I really like candy apples but I can never eat a whole apple in one sitting. Maybe that means I'm not a kid anymore :( with a super sweet tooth or I also don't want to eat a huge apple when the costumes now a days are short and super tight. So for a lighter side I decided to do little mini apples.

Candy Apples
Yields about 15 mini apples from 1 apple

1 apple
15 tooth picks
toppings of choice

Start by peeling the apple. Then using a melon baller scoop out the "mini apples" making sure to be close to the last spot you scooped out therefore you get more out of the apple.

Insert the toothpicks.

Dip each "mini apple" in the caramel.

Dip in pecans, sprinkles, coconut, whatever topping you like or leave plain.


  1. That's a great idea. A lot easier to eat.

    I hate scary stuff too.


  2. These look really wonderful and your idea for mini apples is inspired.

  3. What a super fantastic idea. I love it!

  4. Cute idea. Great for a party or children. Knew my son married 'smart'. BB

  5. Love the "mini" idea! I have not had a caramel apple in so long. I may have to change that :)

  6. Such a great way to enjoy apples. Thanks for sharing! :)

  7. I love these! I have missed your blog, thanks for stopping by!
