These easy-to-make Jack-O-Lantern Caramel Apples are sure to please all the kids this Halloween, including the kids-at-heart!
*Disclaimer - This recipe was originally published in 2015. I'm working hard to update all my older recipes with recipe cards, new photos, and additional recipe information. But, getting to all of them will take time. Please bear with me. In the meantime let me assure you that this recipe is still a winner and one I'm sure you'll be well pleased with when you make it at home.
Put away the candy thermometer because you won't need it to make these charming caramel apples. With only two bags of Werther's original chewy caramels, a bit of evaporated milk, and some food coloring you'll be rocking these Jack-O-Lantern Caramel Apples in no time.

These are brilliant Renee! I never would have thought to paint a face on a caramel apple (but of course you would!!!) - and color the caramel. So adorable and perfect for Halloween.

Holy heck, Renee! Those are freaking awesome! I love the faces on them!

What a clever trick! These are almost too adorable to eat... just almost, though. I'm all about the caramel apples this time of year, and I've yet to find anything that would stop me from chomping down on one. 🙂

I am so impressed with these! Not only are they fun, but they are easy! Totally dig that rat, too! Usually I am not big on creepy Halloween recipes (when something looks like real maggots, that is too much for me,) but I love the creativity behind your recipes!
