Making And Bagging Candy Apples


You will need: A tray, wax paper, optional non-stick spray, bowls to put your melted candies in.

Apples, popsicle sticks, candy melts, candy decorations, plastic Halloween decorations, red food gel, pretzels, nuts, (whatever candy/edibles you want to use), piping bag, cupcake papers, cellophane bags, string/ribbon.

Before you design your candy apple there are a few steps for you to take.

Get a baking tray and cover it with wax paper. You can spray the wax paper with non-stick spray to prevent your candy apples from sticking. You will put your candy covered apples here to dry after you dip them.

Wash your apples, let them dry completely.

Push your popsicle sticks into the center of the top of the apples.

Melt your candy melts and dip your apples into it.

Put each apple on the waxed paper when you are done.

You can double dip the apples, apply candy to the apples, dip the apples in crushed cookies, crushed nuts, crushed pretzels, or even popcorn.

Add spider webs or other designs using an icing piping bag and gooey topping or melted candy.

Add melted chocolate of different colors...or copy one of the designed candy apples you see on this page. It's fun to experiment and create gourmet treats for your family and friends.

When you are done you can put each apple on a cupcake paper.

Then you can put the apple into a cellophane bag and tie it shut with a ribbon or piece of string to give out right away. Or you can set your tray of apples in the refrigerator for up to a week, packaging them when you take them out. Don't do it before - they get messy when you remove them from the refrigerator.

Have fun making your candy apples!
