Meatless Monday Spider Web Apples

Spider Web Caramel Apples

Call the dentist I made caramel apples for our grandchildren!

I love being a Grandma! I made these fun and very messy apples the other night. Our grandchildren ate them in slices and only a little at a time, so I’m not feeling to bad about it…. I thought I’d share it all with you today for Meatless Monday!

What You Need

6 Granny Smith Apples

6 Mini dowels ( popsicle sticks or think pretzel sticks)

100 Caramel squares

1/ ½ Cups chocolate candy melts


Shallow dish

Piping bag and plain tip

Wax paper

Medium saucepan

Baking sheet

Nonstick cooking spray

Microwave safe bowl



Before You Start: Remove the stems from the apples, wash and dry. Then unwrap all of the caramel squares, yes this is the toughest part. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and spray with a coat of cooking spray.

Lets Make It! Push sticks, dowels, pretzels into the stem end of the apples. Place unwrapped caramels in a saucepan over medium high heat, and add 2 Tbsp of water, stirring occasionally, cook until melted. When it’s completely melted hold apple by the stick and dip apples into caramel, please be careful it is hot.  Coat the apples thoroughly with caramel. Remove excess with your spoon and place the dipped apple onto the prepared baking sheet. Put the apples/baking sheet into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. When cooled remove any excess caramel globs, from the base of the apple using a paring knife or silicone kitchen shears.  Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl for about one minute (time may vary depending on your microwave). Dip the bottom of the apple into the melted chocolate and cover warm chocolate with sprinkles. Return to prepared baking sheet. Fill the piping bag with the leftover melted chocolate and pipe spider webs onto each apple. Taa daa. Please note I did not have the right tip or a piping bag when I made my webs. Yours will look much better.

On a side note, it’s my sweet husband’s birthday today. Happy Birthday to the love of my life!

    I love going “meatless”…desserts are my favorite meal! These look amazing…my mouth is watering!
    Hope your week is wonderful…

  2. Ms. A

    They turned out so cute! Love the idea of the chocolate and sprinkles on the bottom, nice added bonus.

  3. Shady Del Knight

    I love them apples, Katie! I don’t usually eat sweets of any kind but in this case I think I’d make an exception. Happy birthday to your husband. To call him the love of your life speaks volumes and I am very happy for you both!

  4. Odie Langley

    And so attractively done which is the only way our Katie knows how to do anything. Have a blessed week my friend.

  5. Denise :)

    What yummy fun! And a happy birthday to your hubby! October birthdays are the best! :)

  6. Sue

    Sure wish I was one of the grandkids!! These look delish….. I always liked caramel apples better than the candied apples. Ooey, gooey tastes better than a crunchy red topping, IMHO! Thing is… we called them both, “candy apples.” Go figure- must have been a New Mexico thing. LOL

  7. Heather

    Caramel apples are my favorite! Yours are just beautiful. I tried to make them once and failed miserably. Perhaps I’ll try again!

  8. Christina Williams

    How are you, Katherine? These look so wonderful! Please share them on the Haunted Halloween link-up at theblogentourage.com if you have a second!

    Hi Katherine,

    Those caramel apples looks very nice and tasty.
    Have a lovely Day! Hugs

  12. Deborah

    They sound delicious. After we go to the orchards in a few weeks I am going to try this!

  13. Kathleen

    Ooh, lucky grandkids! I’ve never made caramel apples, and yours are the best ever with those wonderful Halloween webs. And happy birthday to your husband, too! (I hope he gets one of these fantastic-looking apples as part of his birthday treats! ;)

    Thanks so much for dropping by my blog, it made me smile to get your comment.

    Hope you had a lovely weekend. Jennie. X

    Hmmm….if only “meatless” meant desserts only, I’d be an instant convert! LOL! If my grandkids were nearby these would definitley be on my to-do list! They look spooky great! Hugs, GraceinAZ

    It’s been ages since I’ve had one of these apples, I like the idea of slicing it up and having a bit at a time, thanks for the recipe and showing the process.
