Here are our 6 apple dessert recipes to try this Halloween, enjoy.
Start by prepping your ingredients. To prepare the apples, stick a lollipop stick on the top of the apple. Then take a sharp knife and cut a little slice out of the apple for the mouth. You can add a little food colouring to the caramel such as red or green and when it is ready, swirl the apple in the melted mixture, before placing it on a lightly greased plate. While the caramel is still warm and soft, decorate to suit your guests, you can use toothpicks to create arms or legs, slivered almonds make great teeth, and chocolate chips or raisins are a fun and simple way to add some eyes.
Apple pie is the quintessential Halloween dessert since it is both sweet and comforting, just like the holiday itself. These sweets resemble Apple hand pies or little Apple Pies in form and texture. To make mummies out of your apple pie filling, use puff pastry instead of a regular pie crust or lattice and decorate with piped icing to accentuate the bandages and chocolate buttons for eyes.
These cute and simple peanut butter apple lanterns are perfect for a Halloween breakfast, snack, or appetizer. Remove the core from each apple and use a spoon or melon baller to remove the flesh, being careful to leave sturdy walls. Carefully create the lantern’s eyes and mouth by carving out the face. Stir in some date paste and pumpkin pie spice while melting peanut butter in a saucepan. To serve, simply fill the apples, sprinkle with granola, and replace the tops.
Prepare as many apples as you’ll need by washing, coring, and slicing them very thinly. Spread out on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper, then sprinkle with cinnamon and bake. When a single apple chip removed from the oven remains crisp after being left at room temperature for two to three minutes, the apples are done. Spread the apple chips out on a dish once they have cooled, and then sprinkle them with caramel, chocolate, mini-marshmallows and sprinkles.
A lovely spiderweb drawn directly onto the caramel makes chocolate-covered caramel apples a scary-good Halloween treat. Before you can make these apples for Halloween, you’ll need to find or purchase some firm, dry twigs and, of course, wash them. Locate the largest Granny Smith apples you can, cut off the stems, and insert the dowels or twigs. Now it’s time to leave. Prepare a baking sheet that can be stored in the refrigerator by lining it with parchment paper. To make a handle, stick a stick or twig into the apple. Caramelise the apples and set them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Prepare the chocolate by melting it, then dipping the apples’ bottoms into the chocolate and then into the sprinkles. Return to the parchment and refrigerate for another 15 minutes, or until the chocolate candy melts have hardened. Use the remaining chocolate to drizzle spiderweb patterns as decoration for the apples.
This recipe can be as easy or difficult as you choose to make it. Decorate a spiced apple cake (either shop bought or home baked, whichever suits you, your timescales and your kitchen skills) cover with frosting, again homemade or shop bought are both suitable then decorate with chocolate spiders, gummy worms, and edible eyes for a spooky scene.
