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.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
