I can’t believe that Halloween is coming up! What are everyone’s plans? No plans here but I think we’ll watch a movie, get our favorite candy, and call it a night. The extra hour of sleep with Daylight Savings is all I’m thinking about right now!
It’s easy to make chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies, candy corn, or candy apples as easy Halloween desserts for kids or a party. Break out of cupcakes and pumpkin cake and try different food. At first glance, these may look like spider cookies but they’re actually apple pops! Read how to make these and how they turned out below.
Easy Halloween Treats: Apple Spider Web Pops Recipe
- 2-3 large Granny Smith apples
- 4 ounces of bittersweet chocolate
- 4 ounces of white chocolate
- 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
- Popsicle sticks
- Take out the largest baking sheet you have and line it with parchment paper.
- Cut the Granny Smith apples from stem to bottom into thick slices. You should get 4 slices per apple.
- Remove the apple seeds but keep the core intact. The end slices will be rounded to cut the bottom off so they lie flat.
- Get a knife and cut a line at the bottom of the apple, thick enough so a popsicle stick can get in there.
- Put the 4 ounces of bittersweet chocolate and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir in between until it’s melted and smooth.
- Dip half of the apple slices completely in the bittersweet chocolate and place it on the baking sheet.
- Then microwave the 4 ounces of white chocolate and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir in-between until it’s melted and smooth.
- Then place the last half of the apple slices in the white chocolate until completely covered and add to the baking sheet.
- Let them sit at room temperature so the chocolate thickens for about 20 minutes.
- If you have any leftover chocolate it’s time to use it for the spiderwebs! If you don’t have any chocolate left, microwave some until it is melted.
- Transfer the melted chocolate into two sandwich bags (one for white chocolate and one for bittersweet chocolate) and cut a corner off. Use this to pipe circles and “webs” on each of the apple pops.
- Once you’re done, get a toothpick to even out the webs and make them look spooky.
- Refrigerate for an hour or until hardened.
I love how the tartness of the apples offsets the bittersweet chocolate. These were such a fun treat to make and perfect for a Halloween party or school event!
