Halloween can be a really fun time, but for some kids, it can also be a scary time.  One of our daughters is pretty sensitive and she does not like the fake blood and graveyards etc. So we have compiled a great list of friendly Halloween crafts and foods and more!

Mini Apple Bites

Mini #Apple Bites #recipe

These are easy and loads of fun to make…and eat.  First gather up your supplies:

Mini #Apple Bites #recipe

Kraft Caramels

Heavy Whipping Cream

Sea Salt



Sprinkles or other decor (optional)

Make a double broiler and melt about a handful of Kraft caramels.  When they are totally melted, lower the heat to a low setting.  Add in about 2 teaspoons of heavy whipping cream.  **I did not measure so add slowly**  Add in  a few pinches of sea salt.   Mix until it is a soft, creamy blend.  For your apples, you can cut them into small slices (bite-size) or use a melon baller and make little round mini-apples.  I have shown both methods in the photo above.  You can roll them in sprinkles or other decorations if you want.  If you are patient, just chill them for about 45 minutes…otherwise, cool them and eat right away.  Cute, fun, friendly and completely delicious!

    I like the idea of the Apple Mini bites,because I like to make other goodies and this keeps it in a smaller size!

    Those apple bites are great. I like caramel apples, but they’re too big for little mouths. These are perfect. Thanks.
