Halloween Treats-Chocolate Covered Apples

October is here, and that means that Halloween will soon be upon us. That is why today I am making some special homemade Halloween treats for the little goblins in my life! I have wonderful  memories of going trick or treating as a child in the neighborhood where I grew up.   It was fun back then.   A time when you actually received homemade treats in your treat bags from your neighbors.  Treats like popcorn balls and candied apples.   Sure, there were always the standard lollipops and double bubble gum as well but homemade treats were always extra special.

These treats are  fun and easy to make and if you are artistically inclined,  you can decorate these in so many different ways.  The possibilities are endless!   I wanted to make jack o’ lantern candied apples so my melting chocolate choices are; white chocolate, milk chocolate, and orange-colored chocolate plus some chocolate sprinkles for some extra flair.

My original intention was to make the jack o’lantern faces with a stencil with edible spray paint, but when I saw the  Wilton edible candy markers,  I decided to give that a try instead.

Whatever decorations you decide to use, your little goblins will love these treats.

Why not make a really fun craft for your Halloween party guests? They will love to take their creations home with them!

Place melting chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat chocolate at 50% power for 2 minutes. Stir until all lumps have disappeared. If your chocolate isn't completely melted, place back into microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power.

*do not use full power as it can burn chocolate very easily

Roll apples in melted chocolate until they are completely covered and place them back on the baking sheet to harden.

* for an extra special touch I covered my apples in two layers of chocolate, letting the first harden completely before redipping.

If you add sprinkles to your apples dip apples into a bowl of sprinkles while the chocolate is still soft, then place onto the baking sheet.
