Candy Apple Bar

7 comments
When I was a little girl one of my favorite autumnal treats was a candy apple.  Not those lurid red specimens that would pull your teeth right out of your head, but the chocolate covered apples, dipped in hundreds and thousands. Yum!  Nowadays I'm not so fussed by apples, as my gran would say 'the juice isn't worth the squeeze'.  I'd never pick up an apple and just bite straight in, but hand me a bowl of ready sliced fruit and I'll happily munch away till the cows come home.

If, like me, you can't be bothered with a full apple but still fancy a nice nostalgic treat, then this candy apple bar is for you.  It's also the perfect way to sneek an extra portion of fruit into fussy kids, we'll just ignore all the chocolate and caramel for now, shall we!

Simply chop up a few apples, skewer them on a stick and away you go.  If you're planning on taking your candy apple bar on the road, picnic time ahoy, simply dip your sliced apples in ginger beer.  The citric acid slows the browning process thus keeping your apples pretty for longer.

The fun thing about this is it's fully customisable.  I used a mixture of chocolate sauce and caramel sauce for dipping but melted white chocolate would work beautifully too.  For the topping station I used mini chocolate beans, mini marshmallows, chopped hazelnuts, crushed oreos, crushed digestives and toffee chunks.  The combinations are endless, coconut would be a wonderful addition and popping candy would go down an absolute storm with the little ones.

Such a fun little idea, if you give it a try please do tag me on Instagram at Katie_Petlamb. I'd love to see your creations.

    1. Ahh, I can't wait to see what you guys come up with! Little tip, dry the apple slices off a bit, helps the chocolate stick ;)

  6. Hi Katie, such a cool idea. I'll share with friends! I didn't realize that you had a separate blog. Started following the pet lamb blog years ago, before our first trip to Newcastle in 2013. See you next summer... your visitors from Orlando!
