Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples

Apple decorated to look like a ghost with a trick or treat bag behind it and the words "Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples" digitally written on top.

Apples are the quintessential fall fruit. And Halloween is in the fall. So the perfect combination of these is making Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples.

These are actually really easy to make at home … as long as you have a little bit of patience. They do take a little bit of time and practice, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll love making these for your kids or for your upcoming Halloween party.

You can make these Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples with either store bought apples or apples you get from apple picking, which is great because there’s only so much apple pie you can make after you go apple picking, right?

Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples

This tutorial is how to make one Halloween ghost chocolate apple. If you need to make more of these, just scale the recipe accordingly.

How To Make Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples:

Wash and dry the apple.

Stick the pointed end into the top of the apple (where the stem is).

This is why you specifically want to purchase the bamboo lollipop sticks with the pointed end. Those will easily stick into the top of an apple. The lollipop sticks with two flat ends won’t do this.

Vanilla almond bark melted in a bowl.

Melt one cube of the vanilla almond bark according to the package.

The easiest way to do this is to melt the vanilla almond bark in a microwavable safe bowl for one minute. Stir the almond bark. Put it back in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the vanilla almond bark is completely melted.

Roll the apple in the vanilla almond bark until the apple is completely covered.

Use a spoon to ladle the vanilla almond bark on to the top of the apple, where the stick is.

Let it cool on a silicone baking mat-lined cookie sheet.

Melt the second cube of the vanilla almond bark.

A spoon pouring more vanilla almond bark onto an apple.

This time, spoon all the melted almond bark on top of the apple, letting it drip down and pool at the bottom of the apple to make it look more like a ghost and less like an apple.

Let it cool completely.

Melted chocolate chips in a bowl.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwavable safe bowl.

Using a flat-edged item, draw two eyes and a mouth onto the apple to make a ghost face.

I used a splash stick, which is that piece of plastic that you put into a coffee cup to keep the coffee warm. If you don’t have one of those handy, the back of a utensil (like a fork, spoon, etc.) would work. The flat edge of a toothpick would work as well.

Let it cool completely before wrapping or serving.

Since you’re making this a silicone baking mat, it will pop right off when it’s cooled. If you were making this directly on a cookie sheet, the vanilla almond bark would get stuck to the cookie sheet and would be difficult to pop it off.

If you don’t have a silicone baking mat (which I highly recommend you purchase — I use mine weekly), you could use parchment paper to line the cookie sheet as well. The chocolate will pop right off of that as well. I just don’t prefer it because it’s disposable and a silicone baking mat is reusable.

Halloween Ghost Chocolate Apples: Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use white candy melts in this recipe?

I really like vanilla almond bark. It tastes a lot more like chocolate than white candy melts do, in my opinion.

Vanilla almond bark and candy melts work in the same way in that you can remelt them as many time as needed and they melt just like the first time. I just prefer vanilla almond bark.

If you do decide to use white candy melts, be sure to check out our Tips For Using Candy Melts before you get started.

That’s why it’s so much easier to use these than white chocolate chips. With white chocolate chips, you can only melt them once. You also run the risk of overmelting and burning the chocolate, and you can’t save it. Plus, if white chocolate chips cool, you can’t remelt them like you can with vanilla almond bark or white chocolate chips.

What type of apples work best in this?

Any apples are great for this. Ones that are a little bit smaller work a little bit better because they’re easier to roll in the melted vanilla almond bark. But whatever apples you can find at the store or have leftover from apple picking will work.

Can you make more than one of these at a time?

If you want to make more than one ghost apple at a time, you can definitely do that. Just make sure to make them in batches.

So, dip them all in the vanilla almond bark. By the time you dip the last one, the first one should be cooled enough to spoon melted vanilla almond bark over. By the time you get to the last one, the first one should be cool enough to draw a face on.

How long do chocolate covered apples stay good?

If you store these apples in an air tight container, they’ll last up to a week.
