It’s that spooktacular time of year when the pumpkins are ready for carving, the sugar is cooking, the cinnamon is wafting, and the apples are perfectly ripe. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and we love the delicious treats this season brings – starting with these Disney inspired candied apples. These sweet treats are fun for the whole family to make and have a delicious reward when you are done. So fall under the Mistress of All Evil’s spell into a happy stupor from this delectable Maleficent apple.

For these apples, we chose sweet and crisp varieties such as Honeycrisp, Pink Ladies, Gala, SweeTango, Jazz, Lady Alice, or whatever local apples you may have in season that will pair nicely with the vanilla flavors in the candy melts. We are using Honeycrisp apples.

We start this recipe the way we do all of our recipes by first gathering all our ingredients and equipment. You will need

The first step is to prep the apples. Push the candy stick into the core from the top down. If it is too tough we suggest making a hole with a chopstick, skewer, or something similar.

Next, prepare to melt the Vibrant Green Wilton Candy Melts. For small batches and working with children, we suggest using the Wilton Candy Melts Pot. It provides even low heat and the outside is not hot to the touch. Follow the manufacturer’s safety guidelines.

For larger batches and a pouring consistency, we suggest the microwave and/or double boiler. We suggest 10-15 seconds in the microwave and finish off on the double boiler till you get the consistency you want. Stir continuously to smooth and prevent burning

You can scoop and pour the mixture over the apple, allowing the candy coating to drip down with an even coating. If need be, use a silicon or icing spatula to spread an even coating and fill in thin spots. Rest the coated apple on parchment to allow the candy melt coating to cool and harden.

Once the vibrant green candy melt coating has hardened melt a smaller quantity of the black Wilton candy melt using any of the methods previously mentioned. Pour the melted candy coating into a piping bag.

Note: Wilton disposable piping bags are microwavable.  Candy melts can be placed directly inside the disposable piping bag. Microwave  10-15 seconds at a time, massaging the bag between heating. This technique also works when using the piping bag over a period of time in which the contents may harden.

Cut the smallest tip possible on your piping bag. Test the size first before cutting a larger opening. We also suggest practicing the face on a piece of parchment before application to the candied apple.

We have supplied our own printable template for you. Place template under a piece of parchment and use your piping bag to trace.

Trace Maleficent’s capricorn horns. Fill in and build up to at least a  ¼ inch thickness with an extra layer at the base for structure. Let cool and harden. These will be placed on top of the apple.

Take the remaining black candy melt and draw an outline creating the cap that frames the face. Use the template to copy line placement. When lines are cooled cut the tip of the piping bag larger and color in the remainder of the cap. The hardened outline acts like a barrier that prevents the black from dripping.

Melt a small quantity of the Purple Wilton candy melt using any of the methods previously mentioned. Pour the melted candy coating into a piping bag.

Cut the smallest tip possible on your piping bag. Test the size first before cutting a larger opening. Add four purple stripes on each horn. Start the stripe on the parchment and drag across the horn ending on the other side on the parchment. This sweeping method gives even clean lines. When hardened the extra pieces break off cleanly from the horn.

When the black cap and striped Capricorn horns are fully cooled and harden it’s time for assembly.

Reheat the black candy melt piping bag,  following previous instructions. Take a horn and add a bead of black candy melt to the bottom of the horn. Place it on the apple and hold for 30 seconds. The small amount of candy melt hardens quickly keeping it in place. Add another bead around the base securing the horn on place. Repeat on the other side.

Allow the black candy melt piping to harden before handling the apple.

Once solidified, the apple is ready to display proudly as a lovely addition to your Disney  Halloween decor or table. And when you are done showcasing your creation do not fall into a deep slumber but instead enjoy the tasty treat of your Maleficent apple.

This recipe is like a fun craft where it can be finished over the course of a couple of days. The main trick is to get a base layer on the apple after puncturing it with the candy stick. This will seal the apple and prevent it from exposure (refrigerate in warm and humid climates).  With the base coat on, add the finishing touches at your leisure. Eat within the week.
