The inspiration for these Halloween Candy Apples | Poison Apple Truffles came from two different blogs. I wanted to make a chocolate apple truffle, but because it was the month of October, I also wanted it to be spooky looking. It tastes so delicious and is so easy to make! Gather up the ingredients and get cookin'.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Candy Apple Recipe minus the apples
- Caramel Apple Truffle Recipe minus the caramel. (You can make this with GF cookies or regular cookies)
- Green Candy Melts
First print off the recipes for both the candy apple recipe and the caramel apple truffle recipe. You are then going to make the apple truffles by crushing the cookies into small crumbs. Mix in the apple butter and cream cheese. Portion out small balls onto a lined cookie sheet and then freeze for 30 minutes. Melt the candy melts. Stick toothpicks in each of the cookie balls. Dip the frozen apple butter cookie balls into the candy melts. Put them back into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes. Move on to making the POISON (black candy apple coating). Mix together the ingredients. Follow the directions on the candy apple recipe, making sure to let the candy reach hard crack stage (295° to 309° F). Take out the frozen cookie balls and quickly dip the balls into the POISON. Dunk and pull out. Don't let it sit in too long or you will have a melting mess on your hands. Place the poison apples on a lined cookie sheet and let them completely cool. Enjoy!
As always, keep it creative and I'll see you in my next video.
