So cute! I went to a cooking class that recommended dipping fruit in lemon/lime soda to keep it from turning brown. A good alternative to using lemon juice. Sugar free soda can be used for those watching sugar/weight.-17 Oct 2012

I had to try these today just for fun. I like that they are a healthy or more diabetic friendly Halloween treat. Those are rare to find! I only had the sliced almonds. They worked fine as long as I picked out the small and thicker ones. Very cute yet simple and easy idea!-28 Oct 2011
Excellent - Thanks for the creative recipe!This is going to be a classroom Halloween snack and can't use nuts. Instead I used a knife to cut individual slits on the top and bottom and used broken white corn chip pieces for the teeth. I did a trial run and used a dilution of red food coloring, water and lemon juice to make the "mouth" red before I stuck the "teeth" in so they would show up better. My son loved it, said it was creepy and thought it tasted great too.-22 Oct 2013

A Candy Apple Recipe To Sink Your Teeth Into
Candy apples are often the forgotten sibling to the more widely accessible caramel apples found at county fairs, food festivals, and grocery stores in the fall. Coated with chopped nuts and candy and drizzled in chocolate, caramel apples are the Marcia Brady of apple treats. But no more. This Halloween, we're learning how to make candy apples,that will put any Oreo-covered, white chocolate-drizzled, caramel apple to shame.
The trick to making candy apples is a candy thermometer. You can buy one for under $10 at most grocery stores. You'll use the candy thermometer to measure the cooking stages of the sugar and corn syrup mixture. The syrup will be done cooking once the temperature reaches the hard crack stage — a specific temperature range (300 to 310 degrees) when cooking sugar. You can gauge the hard crack stage by dropping a spoonful of hot syrup into a glass of cold water. The syrup should form brittle threads that will break apart if you try to bend them.
I used three types of apples: Gala, Granny Smiths, and Golden Delicious, which are red, green, and yellow respectively. You can choose any variety of apple you'd like I chose these apples because of their color. You'll also need lollipop sticks, which can be found at your local craft store.
But enough shop talk, let's get cooking. Jan Brady is waiting for her crown.
Makes nine candy apples
- 6 small apples (three Gala, three Granny Smith, and three Golden Delicious)
- 6 lollipop sticks
- 1 cup of water
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1/2 cup of light corn syrup
- 8 drops of red food coloring
- 8 drops of yellow food coloring
- 8 drops of green food coloring
- 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
- 3 packages of Pop Rocks candy (optional)
Wash the apples throughly and dry them, making sure no water droplets are left on the apples. Water will prevent the candy coating from sticking.
Insert the stick directly into the core of each apple, about half-way through.
Combine the water, sugar, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat.
Insert the candy thermometer into the saucepan, and let the mixture come to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium, and let the mixture simmer until the temperature reaches 300 degrees, about 10 minutes.
Once 300 degrees is reached, divide the syrup evenly among three saucepans, and place over low heat.
In the first saucepan, mix in the cinnamon and red food coloring.
In the second and third saucepan, add the green and yellow food colorings respectively.
Dip an apple into its corresponding color until the entire apple is coated, working quickly.
After coating the green apples with the sugar syrup, cover with Pop Rocks.
Set the coated apples on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or a Silpat to let cool.
If the candy coating thickens, add two tablespoons of water. Allow the mixture to reach a boil, over medium-high heat before coating the apples.

Halloween apple teeth recipe - Recipes
Kind of creepy, but very healthy, these treats are sure to get your guests talking. All you need is an apple and a few slivered almonds and you can create your own grotesque teeth too.
Also, keep on hand a knife and cutting board.
Step 1: Cut and Prepare the Apple
Start by slicing the apple in half.
Then cut the two pieces in half, creating 4 quarters.
Use the knife to remove stems, cores and other desired bits of the apple.
Now proceed to slice a wedge out of the front of each piece of apple. This will form the shape of the mouth.
TIP: If you aren’t serving the apples right away, soak the apples in lemon or orange juice to prevent browning.
Step 2: Add Teeth
Now start placing almond slices on the top and bottom of the wedge. There is no right or wrong way to place the almonds as these are meant to be spooky teeth. Just have fun with it!
Repeat the process for all the teeth. Then place on a festive plate and serve.

Halloween Apple Mouths
Halloween is at the door and many will be facing a common question when it comes to holidays that are associated with unhealthy food: should we or the kids fully indulge, should we stay strict Paleo or can a compromise be attained? We think that the later option should prove to be best for a vast majority of people. That is, of course, unless you’re dealing with a digestive or autoimmune issue that doesn’t allow for any misstep.
Fun, tasty and creative treats like the following creepy apple mouths can easily be created with healthy ingredients. Healthy or not, the kids will jump all over it if it’s fun and tasty so this one is a clear winner.
We shared a good amount of creative Halloween recipes in a previous post covering things like soups, salads and main dishes and this additional one fills a gap to complete a true feast of horror.
Have fun preparing these treats in a record amount of time or use the occasion to involve the kids with the prep work!
