Ready for a super fun and easy candy apple recipe? We’re throwing a party and making this classic Halloween dessert pink!
Paint the town pink! Or, as a matter of fact…let’s just make everything pink?! I am only half kidding. But in all seriousness, I feel like a celebration is in order since BFFF was just nominated for Bloglovin’s 2016 Best Entertaining Blog Award. Okay so earlier, you may have seen me doing Karaoke on Instagram using a sprinkled pink candy apple as my microphone. That recipe was a total flop so I tried something a little different.
Even though candy apples can be amazingly delicious, they can also look a bit basic, wouldn’t you agree? One of my favorite creative strategies is taking something boring or basic and pumping up the party by making it just a little bit brighter. Here is my latest favorite creation that made the cut by being both pretty and delicious! It’s amazing how these generic apples can be totally transformed into fun, chic, AND tasty candy apples. You heard right, these are totally ready to bite in to! I’m so excited to share the recipe with you!
If you’re not a big fan of pink, rest assured, the sky’s the limit in terms of color choices. Channel your inner Pantone genius and dip these candy apples in your favorite color of choice – blue, teal, purple…maybe even gold!
When I initially created this recipe, I tried a traditional-style candy apple recipe. They were SO hard to bite into, so I had to re-transform the recipe and color white chocolate to give it the perfect bite. If I had stuck with the regular candied apple, it would have been impossible to eat. Unless they were meant as a Halloween prank and someone wanted to lose a tooth. ;) Just kidding!
All you’ll need for these candy apples is Granny Smith apples. white chocolate coating, your favorite color, wax paper, and skewers for your apples. That’s it! Just a few ingredients!
To make your candy apples, melt your white chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave or on the stove. Make sure it’s fully melted. Add your favorite oil-based food coloring and stir. Put skewers into the tops of your apples, and then roll the apples in the bowl or pot until fully covered. Be sure to remove any excess chocolate before placing your apples on a baking sheet covered with wax paper to harden.
I can’t wait to try this recipe with so many other colors for different holidays! You could ever sprinkle your apples with chocolate chips, crushed nuts, or sprinkles! What color will you make? Tell me all about it in the comments below.
