Halloween Caramel Apples, Cupcake Papers and Wire Tiered Stands

caramel apples for halloween

Caramel Apples are ready to eat in one hour. It takes about 30 minutes to make them.  Add 30 minutes to cool them in the fridge. Real Simple proposes a no fuss Caramel Apple recipe where you melt the generic caramel squares. If you are more fancy, you could heat a finer caramel. Local candy shops or gourmet shops sell caramel in a jar. If you live in Montreal, I suggest that you check Kréavie. They make a delicious Salted butter caramel.

halloween cupcake papers

You can wrap the caramel apples in clear cellophane paper that you tie with an orange ribbon. If you make a sweet table, deposit each caramel apple on a Halloween themed cupcake paper. I bought the Halloween cupcake paper set at Crate & Barrel.

French Wire Tiered Stand

Aim for a wire tiered stand or a black porcelain stand for your sweet table. Target had a Web Pastry Stand that screams Halloween; unfortunately, it is marked out of stock on their Web site. Another option is the French Wire Tiered Stand that I like because you can use it any way you want. Each tier can be used on its own or you can use only two tiers.

SOURCING:
+ Caramel Apple recipe on Real Simple
+ Web Pastry Stand at Target
+ Halloween cupcake paper set $4.95 at Crate & Barrel
+ French Wire Tiered Stand $51.96 at Willow House
