Halloween Chocolate Apples

Every October the shops are filled with toffee apples for Halloween and Bonfire night but it’s never these that interest my kids it’s the chocolate ones! I did make toffee apples many years ago and after 1 you really don’t want to eat any more and I made masses! So with this in mind I decided to make my own Chocolate Apples which are equally good for Halloween or Bonfire Night!

My recipe (if you can call it a recipe) makes 4 so you can just tailor it to the number you want to make. You don’t have to make a web pattern of course, you could do any numbers decorations and get your kids involved in piping on spiders, skulls, ghosts, cats etc and it really doesn’t matter if they’re not perfect looking, the idea is to have fun! I was given some Halloween sprinkles recently but after seeing all the e numbers in them I decided that unadulterated chocolate was the only thing I was going to feed my family! Call me old fashioned but if something doesn’t look like you should be eating it eg glittery then I really don’t want to eat it!

I do hope you have a go at making your own Halloween Chocolate Apples and if you’re having a party I think they would be lovely to give to your guests as party favours. If you think it’s a bit of a faff to get hold of cellophane to wrap them in take my tip and use a roasting bag (folding the excess around the back) and cut to size! No-one will know!

Halloween Chocolate Apples decorated in chocolate spider's webs to impress your visitors or just make them for yourselves!
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 4 Apples (washed & dried)
  • 200g White chocolate
  • 200g Dark chocolate
  • Equipment needed:
  • 4 Lolly sticks
  • Baking paper
  1. Push a lolly stick into each apple.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a small bowl over a small pan of barely simmering water. (Turn off heat once melted).
  3. Holding the stick roll 1 of the apples in the chocolate (you may need to tilt the bowl for full coverage) then place on baking parchment to set.
  4. Repeat with a second apple.
  5. Then melt the while chocolate in the same way as the dark and coat 2 more apples and then place all the coated apples in the fridge for 10 minutes to fully set.
  6. Once the chocolate has set put the white chocolate back over the heat to melt and place half of it in a small piping bag with a tiny nozzle or one fashioned out of baking paper with the end sniped off.
  7. Decorate a dark chocolate apple with a web pattern by starting with a series of downward stripes and then proceed to join those stripes with a small curve.
  8. Repeat procedure for the next dark chocolate apple.
  9. Then melt the remaining dark chocolate and repeat the above procedure for the white chocolate apples.
  10. Allow to set and then wrap in cellophane or roasting bags and tie with a ribbon or string!
To make a piping bag out of baking paper, tear off a square, fold in 2, then form a cone shape (more folding makes it easier), folding the top over and snip off a small hole at the end.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you – have fun:-)

  9. Ursula Hunt

    The piping is great, not sure mine would look so good!

    1. Camilla

      It’s just patience Ursula, I’m sure you could do it:-)

  10. Deena Kakaya

    Camilla they look gorgeous! You clearly have a very steady hand x

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Deena:-)

  11. Heather Haigh

    Those look lovely. I think chocolate apples are much nicer than toffee apples and way healthier than gaudy sweets.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Heather, my thoughts exactly:-)

  12. Katie Bryson

    These look so fun Camilla! I think this’ll make a fun activity for the boys over half term 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Katie, I think we’ll be making some more too:-)

  13. Choclette

    Camilla these are fantastic, so beautifully done. You make it all sound so simple, but I know I’d make a real mess and just smear everything with chocolate. Great photos too. Thanks for sending them in the We Should Cocoa direction.

    1. Camilla

      Aaw thank you Choclette and a pleasure:-)

  14. Maddy

    Wow, you make it look so easy, LOL!

  15. Jeanne Horak-Druiff

    Clever clever clever! And a lot more exciting than toffee apples which always seem hard to eat… Can I come trick or treating round your house this year please?? 😉

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jeanne, yes toffee apples may as well be covered in superglue to my mind LOL:-)

  16. Kavey

    I’m afraid I had to skip the text today – my eyes are going through dry eye phase again (partly a side effect of the laser eye correction a couple of years ago) and the font you use is just really difficult for me.
    But the photos look GORGEOUS!

    1. Camilla

      That’s OK Kavey this is one of those posts where the pictures really do do all the talking:-) Hope your eyes feel better soon. With the font can you not drag (stretch) it on the screen to look bigger – that’s what I do as my eyesight is getting shocking and I most likely need glasses but keep putting off going to get them checked!


    These are so fab! I love toffee apples but the kids in the family always want the chocolate ones in the shops. Now do I make toffee ones for myself or chocolate ones for them muhahaha!

    1. Camilla

      Well I think the chocolate ones last better as the toffee ones tend to go a bit sticky with age I found!

  18. Nayna Kanabar (@SIMPLYF00D)

    These look amazing I love the detailed piping.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you so much:-)

  19. Helene @Croque-Maman

    Oh!!! I saw them in the shops and I was wondering if I could be making some. I’m off to pinning your recipe and trying it out. I love your pictures and your little flying pumpkins (!!!)

    1. Camilla

      Fab, so glad to have inspired you:-) I love my flying pumpkins, just wait til Christmas:-)

  20. Gill Bland

    These look amazing. Nice work. I fear though that if I tried to make them they’d end up as a horrible smudgy mess!

    1. Camilla

      Oh yea of little faith LOL – I bet you’d be fine!

  21. frances hopkins

    I’ve just shown this to my 15 year old son, and he said they worth about a tenner each, amazing!!

    1. Camilla

      Well maybe if they were in Harrods:-)

  22. Paul Wilson

    They look amazing!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you:-)

  23. Anne Dalzell

    Camilla, these are gorgeous. I’m so going to get my little boy to help me make these. I imagine we won’t be able to make them look quite so impressive but we’ll give it our best shot.

    1. Camilla

      Aaw, thank you! The main thing is to have fun:-)

  24. Elizabeth

    What a great idea! Lovely photos too 🙂 I would prefer one of these over a toffee apple any day!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Elizabeth – yes my teeth aren’t what they were so chocolate is a much safer option:-)
