Welcome to #Choctoberfest 2019. #Choctoberfest is a celebration of chocolate. Join the fun and get hundreds of free chocolate recipes this week. To kick things off, I’m sharing Disneyland Dirt and Worms Candy Apples. These have shown up at Disneyland during Halloweentime and are a fantastic combination of flavors. These tart granny smith apples are covered in homemade caramel and dark chocolate, dipped in crushed Oreo cookies and topped with white chocolate and gummy worms. They are a little messy but make an fantastic dessert you can easily share.
You can use store bought caramels for this recipe or if you are feeling adventurous make homemade caramel. That is what we did and the result was so amazing, creamy and sinful. I highly recommend going this route.
#Choctoberfest is a sponsored event. I did not use any sponsored product for this post but you can look forward to seeing some sponsored by Imperial Sugar later this week, You can stop by and join their Scary Scramble now. All thoughts, ideas, recipes, pictures, and opinions contained within this post are solely my own and not necessarily that of the sponsor.
Disneyland Dirt and Worms Candy Apples Recipe
- Dark chocolate candy melting discs
- White chocolate candy melting discs
- Granny Smith apples
- Gummy worms
- Caramel apple sticks
- Wash and dry the apples, remove the stems. Remove wax if necessary. To remove the wax, dip apple is boiling water quickly and then wipe the wax off the apple using a paper towel.
- Insert stick into the top of the apple.
- Melt the caramel on low heat until it reaches 170 degrees on a thermometer. Dip each apple into the caramel, scrape off the excess and set the apple on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate according to package directions. You can use a double boiler if desired. Dip the caramel covered apple into the chocolate. Work quickly. Place the apple directly into crushed Oreo's and then onto a clean parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet.
- Once the chocolate has set, melt white chocolate in a piping bag in the microwave at 50% power for 15 seconds. Repeat until chocolate can be piped, usually about 30 seconds. Pipe the chocolate over the top of the apples and use to stick the gummy worms on top.
- Keep apples in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Apples should stay fresh for up to two weeks.
