I had so much fun making these Candy Apples!  And honestly, they turned out way better than I expected them to. And my daughter about flipped when she saw these Jack Skellington Chocolate Covered Apples! They are quite the unexpected Halloween treat.

Seriously though, these Chocolate Covered Apples are much simpler to make than they look.  I even melt the white chocolate the lazy way, in the microwave.

The most difficult step is painting on the Jack Skellington face.  And that all depends on your artistic ability.  I haven’t painted in years so this step took me longer than I’d like to admit!

But it was worth that extra effort.  My daughter was beyond thrilled with these Halloween Apples!  Of course, it is no surprise.  Just look at this year’s Halloween costume that she requested.

Jack Skellington Costume

I originally shared her Jack Skellington costume on Instagram.  Any Instagram fans?  Check out WonkyWonderful on Instagram for behind the scenes pics!

White Chocolate Dipped Apples

Just melt the white chocolate and coconut oil in microwave. You’ll want to use a dish or cup that is not much wider than your apples and deep enough to fully submerge the apple.

Homemade Chocolate Dipped Apples

Dip and allow the excess to drip off.

I also cheated a little with the black frosting.  Making dark black frosting can be tricky.  So I bought the Wilton premade frosting and it worked great!

DIY Candy Apples

For these Jack Skellington Chocolate Covered Apples you will need popsicle sticks, black & white striped washi tape, a paint brush and a Jack Skellington reference to look at while painting.  One important thing I learned for next time: make sure to use a fine tip paint brush!

Make Angry Jack or Happy Jack!  The Happy Jack with oval eyes is much easier to paint.

Jack Skellington Chocolate Covered Apples
Servings: 4
Author: WonkyWonderful
Ingredients
  • 4 Apples
  • 2 Cups White Chocolate Morsels (white chocolate melts can be used instead)
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil or Shortening**
  • Black Icing
  • 4 Popsicle Sticks
  • Black & White Washi Tape optional
  • Fine Tip Paint Brush
Instructions
  1. Cover popsicle sticks with washi tape.
  2. Wash and dry apples. Remove stems and insert sticks.
  3. Melt white chocolate and oil/shortening in microwave. Stir every 20-30 seconds. Heat until almost smooth (about 1 minute) then stir vigorously until all chocolate is melted.(You’ll want to use a dish or cup that is not much wider than your apples and deep enough to fully submerge the apple.)
  4. Let melted chocolate cool for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Dip and allow the excess to drip off.
  6. Transfer to plate covered with wax paper. Immediately transfer apples to refrigerator. (To prevent chocolate puddles at base, spin apples after refrigerating for 2-3 minutes. This will remove the excess chocolate at bottom.)
  7. Once chocolate has fully cooled (5-10 minutes) dip in melted chocolate one more time, repeating process.
  8. After second chocolate coating has fully cooled, begin painting the Jack Skellington face.
  9. Use a fine tip brush for painting.
