Creative Halloween Party Food
I love a good themed party food and so do my kids so this year I decided to surprise them with a gooey bloody apple to go with the fondant ghost I made for my daughter’s pretty in pink witch’s tea party. These are very easy and take zero baking or crafting skills. I promise! All you need is to know how to roll out the fondant…that’s it!
The apples are great Halloween snacks for friends that have allergies. These Halloween apples are nut free, peanut butter free, and gluten free so you serve them worry free at your Halloween party!
I know it can be hard to find gluten free Halloween food ideas so if you need some help please email me…I’d be happy to offer some advice on gluten free Halloween treats for party goers!
How to Make Yummy Spooky Halloween Treats
What You Need to Make Spooky Apples
- Dessert plate
- Salad bowl
- Two medium/large-ish apples
- Wilton red sparkle gel
- Wilton fondant packages
- Candy sticks
- Black Straws
- Red Straws
- Edible pen
It takes approximately one package of fondant as shown above for each apple. Roll out the fondant and set aside any excess fondant. You will use any extra for the ghost apple.
If you don’t like the taste of fondant you can use white chocolate melting chips (or any color) and dip the apples.
Also, if you want to make your ghost, say, pink, you can color the fondant with food coloring.
Place plate over fondant and cut around with a knife.
Smooth fondant around apple and cut away excess, set aside. It’s ok if it is not perfectly smooth. If your apple does not sit up straight (mine didn’t) you can add some fondant to the bottom to act as a base. Sort of build it up on one side until it stands up straight.
Place your stick in the apple.
Measure your straw, cut, then place it over the stick.

Decorate Your Spooky Halloween Apples
Take the Wilton red sparkle gel and starting at the top make oozing lines. Add little droplets to look like blood drops.
We’re going to repeat the process for the ghost but use your salad bowl instead because it should be a little wider than the dessert plate. Add the excess fondant you set aside from the first apple to this ball of fondant before you roll it.
Cut a marshmallow in half and place on top of the apple.
Loosely place your circle of fondant over the apple to make it look like a ghost.
Put your other stick in the apple.
Do the same thing you did before…measure and cut your straw.

Give Your Ghost a Little Personality
Now make a face with your edible marker. DO NOT use a sharpie or any kind of non-edible pen. Such a cute little party snack!
Serve to your kids or guests and enjoy!
