Turn Your Halloween Candy into Caramel Apples

There’s nothing quite like a perfectly crisp apple—especially the initial pierce of the skin and subsequent release of that sweet apple juice. Now imagine that treat covered in ooey gooey caramel. And leftover Halloween candy! Oh, you know you want it right now. In fact, I may or may not be covered in caramel as I write this.

Halloween Candy Caramel Apples


  • 6 apples (I like Pink Lady and Fuji)
  • 1 (14-oz.) package of individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • White chocolate or any crushed up candy – a great use for Halloween leftovers


  • Remove the stem from each apple and press a craft stick into the top. Butter a baking sheet.
  • Place caramels and milk in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave 2 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool briefly.
  • Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated, then sprinkle with candy. Place on prepared sheet to set.
  • Melt white chocolate in the microwave, then drizzle slowly over caramel-covered apple.

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
