Let’s get Spooky!
Most of you have probably heard that Disney canceled ALL of their Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties this year. It’s such a big bummer, but I know they have our best interest at heart and want to keep their guests safe. That doesn’t mean we have to miss out on the spooky fun and sweet treats though! I teamed up with 3 other magical friends to recreate some of MNSSHP’s favorite snacks that you can make at home! Hope you join in on the fun!

I picked the Caramel Poison Apple and Spooky Ghost Strawberries, because I can almost say they’re healthy with all the fruit, haha! Both are very easy to make AND they make great gifts for your fall-loving friends.
Let’s get started!
Caramel Poison Apple
4-6 medium-large Honeycrisp Apples
4-6 Candy Apple Skewer Sticks
10 oz bag white chocolate melting wafers
11 oz bag caramel melts
Wash and dry apples thoroughly. Insert stick into stem of each. Set aside.
Unwrap caramels and follow melting directions listed on package. Melt until sauce is smooth when stirred.
Lay a sheet of wax paper down on counter. Generously sprinkle powdered sugar on top so the caramel doesn’t stick to the paper.
Dip apples into hot caramel sauce and turn until coated. Use large spoon to spoon caramel over top. Shake off excess caramel and scrape off excess sauce from bottom of apples. Place on wax paper. Allow to the caramel to set for 30 minutes or so.
Melt the chocolate wafers in the microwave via instructions listed on package. IF the chocolate wafers are not smooth, add a bit of vegetable oil until smooth.
Pour the melted chocolate into a squeeze bottle or icing bag and create the outline of the eyes and nose. Start drizzling the chocolate from the top of the apple and let it drip down like it’s shown in the movie. Let cool in room temperature or in the refrigerator until set.

Spooky Ghost Strawberries
1 pint of Strawberries
½-1 bag white chocolate melting wafers
handful of dark chocolate melting wafers
Wash strawberries and gently pat with paper towels until completely dry. Lay a sheet of wax paper on cookie sheet. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate via instructions listed on package. Stir until smooth.
Dip strawberries in white chocolate; place on a wax paper. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.
In microwave, melt dark chocolate melting wafers via instructions found on package; stir until smooth. Pour into icing bag, cut small opening and draw two eyes and a mouth on each ghost. Place back on wax paper and refrigerate. Good for 1 to 2 days.
Hope these recipes bring back a little bit of the magic this season. What are you looking forward to recreate from MNSSHP? Follow us on Instagram for future #MNSSHPATHOME posts. Happy Haunting!
