Boo! [I don't feel I've posted enough about apples covered in sugar]
Hello! Today I have a really quick ideas post if you are stuck for some halloween themed treats - more chocolate apples! I know, Chocolate week really wasnt that long ago and on Monday I made caramel ones, but as soon as I had the idea for these, I needed to try it. They were pretty quick to make [the longest part being the setting of the chocolate] and are a great variation of these for Halloween.
Following the same steps as this post in preparing the apples, I coated my apples, but then used the back of a teaspoon to create the effects. For the pumpkin [using Silver Spoon Chocolate Orange Buttons], taking the spoon up and down the apple created the lines and ridges and for the mummy [using a Milky Bar], taking the spoon across and around the apple gave the layered effects of bandages. Apply the first coat and allow to set:
If needed, apply a second coat [just to add more texture and cover any shades of green]:
Once completely set, I used Sainsburys Caramel writing pens to add the details:
You could also make ghosts, monster heads, or even spiders [wrapping black pipe cleaners round the base of the skewer for legs] and eyeballs with your decoration. Happy Halloween!
[This now ends my annual posting limit of chocolate apples!]
