Snow White Poison Candy Apples
featured in I Tried To Recreate Disney Halloween Treats
Katie recreates the poison apple from Snow White, but gives it a Halloween twist by drawing a creepy, spooky green face on it. Don’t let making candy apples from scratch scare you–they only take a few ingredients and are easier than you think!

for 4 servings
- 4 honeycrisp apples, stems removed
- 1 ½ cups sugar (300 g)
- ½ cup water (120 mL)
- ¼ cup light corn syrup (85 g)
- 6 drops red food coloring
- 8 oz neon green candy melts (225 g)
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 4 lollipop sticks
- Insert a lollipop stick into the stem end of each apple.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
- Add the sugar, water, and corn syrup to a medium saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then cook until the temperature reaches 300°F (150°C), about 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the red food coloring.
- Dip the apples in the syrup to coat entirely, then set on the prepared baking sheet. Let cool until the candy hardens, about 5 minutes.
- Add the green candy melts to a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on low power in 20-second intervals, stirring between, until melted. Stir in the canola oil until smooth. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a squeeze bottle. Let cool for 5 minutes more, or until the candy sets quickly when squeezed out of the bottle.
- Use the melted candy to draw eyes and a mouth on each apple, then outline the rest of the apple above the very bottom and fill in the space outside the eyes and mouth.
- Let set for 10–15 minutes, until completely hardened.
