Everything tastes better when chocolate is involved and this Halloween Candy Apple Crisp is no exception! Your favorite Halloween candy is stirred into diced apples and then covered with two times the amount of crisp topping to create a truly delicious autumn dessert.
Did you get a lot of candy today? This was the first non-raining Cleveland Halloween we’ve enjoyed. Unfortunately, it’s also our last Halloween but man we went out with a bang. Our city has a set hour and a half time frame for trick or treating and we were out the entire time together as a family of six plus my sister-in-law and our friends who came over to trick-or-treat with us with their three little ones.
I’m working the group costume ideas as long as I can with my crew. This year my oldest was a zoo keeper and she had a swan, a monkey and the baby was a skunk which was the first Halloween costume my oldest wore. Crazy how it all came full circle. They came home from trick-or-treating with treat bags nearly overflowing with sweets. It’s not that they absolutely love candy, they truly just enjoy acquiring it and then sorting it. And so now I have a huge jar in my kitchen full of every kind of candy imaginable. So what’s a girl to do than bake with it?!
I introduce to you, Halloween Candy Apple Crisp. As I’ve said before, everything tastes better when chocolate is involved and this recipe is no exception! A cup of candy – this time, I used Rolos but a version featuring Twix is in my near future! – is stirred into diced apples and then covered with two times the normal amount of crisp topping. What can I say, it’s my favorite part!
And did you catch the mention of diced apples? One of my pet peeves of apple crisp is spending the time to peel, core and then slice apples. High maintenance fruit? Not a fan. Instead, I chose to use my KitchenAid 14 Cup Food Processor and dicing kit to quickly and easily dice the apples needed for this recipe. I swear I diced six apples in less than 30 seconds. There’s going to be LOTS of apple crisps in my future. I mean not only have I found a way to make the prep work easier, but I also have lots of Halloween candy and apple flavor combinations to try!
What candy will you try first in this Halloween Candy Apple Crisp? Snickers? Milky Way? Butterfinger? I’d love to know what’s your favorite so be sure to leave a comment when you give this recipe a try.
