Mini Candy Apple Recipes

These Mini Candy Apples are the perfect size for children to eat and easy enough for them to make all on their own.

1. Cut all your lollipop sticks in half, you can find these in the candy/baking section of most craft and major grocery stores.


2. Collect the rest of your ingredients: Apples, Melon Baller, Cupcake Liners, Dips and Toppings. For the dips we used melted almond bark, chocolate chips, butterscotch and caramel. For toppings we used different types of sprinkles and nuts.


3. Scoop out a ball of apple with your melon baller and insert the halved lollipop stick into the apple piece. Dip the apple ball into whatever melted dip you want and then dip into the topping!


4. Set in a cupcake liner for toppings to set for a few minutes.


5. Take a bite and enjoy!

    Great ideas. It’s amazing what you learn off of Iron Chef.

    This is a great idea, but make sure to tell your readers that they need to pat dry the apples before dipping in the caramel, else the dip will not stick to the apple.

    What a GREAT idea! We made regular candy apples last year after our trip to the orchard. They’re such a mess to slice up and eat though. This would be a perfect solution!!
