Halloween Apple Recipes

halloween-5Candy apples might be the quintessential Halloween treat that no one actually ever eats. And with good reason, they are pretty messy to make and eat. This year I whipped up two new twists on the classic treat for Austin Woman Magazine that can be prepped ahead of time and are perfect for any Hallow’s Eve party! They are also quick and easy enough you can make these today for your ghoulish gathering tonight!

Bonus: I included a super simple treat for hostesses, teachers or a last minute party that is only two ingredients!
