This year’s Halloween celebration was not complete without a variation on candied apples for Neve’s third grade class party. It took a whole lot of apple slicing, a little creativity in selecting toppings. and ended with such a fun, festive, and tasty snack!

I found Honey Crisp apples on sale for $1.99/lb. and the kids loved their perfect combination of crunchy sweet and tart (even without sugary toppings!).
