October is the month when we celebrate Halloween… It is also time for our chocolate party celebration! Yes, the day has arrived once again. This time, our secret ingredient is candy. Oh, how delightful! Well, to commemorate both occasions, I made a special treat: Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owls!!! Isn’t that just the cutest little treat? My children are as happy as can be. I hope that yours will be also!
Our Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl is much funnier and quicker to make than cupcakes. I am telling you, kids go crazy for it. Well, who wouldn’t? I am an adult, and am cuckoo-crazy for this delicious, easy Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl.
This Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl is also a great Halloween cooking project to get children involved in. Mostly all that you need is sliced apples, melted chocolate, oreos, and candies to decorate. I don’t know anything that could be easier to prepare than this Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl.
At any rate, if you still wish to add cupcakes to your party, I have a great one for you: Our SPOOKY Brigadeiro Cupcakes – decorated three different ways. I would also to encourage you to check out our other chocolate party treats below. They are all to die for!
Have a wonderful month, and a fun Halloween!
- 2 apples (I used Granny Smith)**
- 1 (23 oz) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 8 (6-inch) wooden sticks
- 1 bag of standard-sized Oreos
- 8 Candy Corns (for the nose)
- Wilton Candy Eyeballs
** Granny Smith apples are my favorite choice for this chocolate-apple Halloween treat because they are tart, so they will take longer to turn brown (oxidation process). Their tartness, combined with the sweetness of the candies, also gives a great contrast of flavors to this Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl.
- Sit apples upright on a wood board and slice from top to bottom (about 4 slices per apple, 1/2-inch thick). Remove seeds gently. Then, line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and push the pointed end of each stick up into the bottom of each apple slice.
- In a medium glass bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave according to the package directions, place bowl into a larger bowl filled with about 2-inch boiling water (this will help chocolate to not harden), and dip apple slices in chocolate using a spoon to help cover each slice if your bowl isn’t deep enough to cover them.
- Allow excess chocolate to drip off, then lay flat on the foil-lined baking sheet. Use the oreos to decorate both the eyes and ears of the owl and the candy corn for the nose while chocolate is still wet. Use a small dot of melted chocolate as a glue for the candy eyeballs. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for approximately 10-15 minutes, allowing chocolate to harden. If you wish, decorate the wood stick with a ribbon. Serve chocolate-apple Halloween owl and enjoy!
