A few years ago, one of my colleagues brought everyone at work black candy-coated apples. Ever since then, I’ve absolutely loved them and make them every year in the Autumn. These poison apples for Hallowe’en are really easy to make. There are lots of recipes online, but I usually use this one. The candy coating is made from scratch, and you just need a candy thermometer to make them. The only tricky part is finding black food coloring. This time of year it’s a little easier, but you might have to order it online. Of course, they look even more spooky on my favorite plates, Hayride Black, by Royal Stafford.
For these poison apples, I used the last of the apples from the Turnaround House. On the day before we closed on the sale of the house, we picked all the apples from our orchard and brought them to the mountain. I’ve been doing a lot of baking with all the apples! I’ve made homemade baked apple oatmeal for breakfast as well as apple hand-pies for Andy. Whenever he goes out of town for work, I try and make him some home-baked items for him to take. For these spooky and delicious apples, they would be perfect to make for a Hallowe’en party, a family dinner, or as treats for friends. Let me know what you think!
It’s a glorious time of year!
