Mmm, nothing says Halloween like these classic homemade treats. Have fun with your roomies whipping up a batch of this pseudo-healthy treats (hey, they have fruit in them, right?) to help get you through midterm season.

Caramel Apples


  • Wooden skewers
  • Pot
  • Glass bowl (bigger than pot)


  • 5 apples
  • 1 lb caramel candies
  • 2 tbsp water
  • crushed M & M’s, peanuts, or other topping


  1. First, wash the apples, remove their stems, and stick them on the skewers, pushing the skewer almost all the way through.
  2. Next, make a double boiler by boiling a cup of water in the pot and placing the glass bowl over the top of the pot.
  3. Put the caramels and 2 tbsps of water in the glass bowl and stir gently as the gradually melt.
  4. Remove from heat and dip the apples in one at a time, followed by rolling them in your topping of choice.
  5. Let cool and enjoy!

    Thanks for the tips on how to make a caramel apple. My sister and I learned the hard way that certain types of caramel don’t work so well for making caramel apples.
