If you are looking for a terrifying but delicious treat to serve up on Halloween, look no further than these poison toffee apples. This recipe from Alida Ryder of Simply Delicious is inspired by Maleficent, with a black candy coated exterior. Rather than a typical red candy apple or brown caramel coating, these toffee apples uses black gel food coloring to give the sweet snacks a scarier look.
By combining food coloring, sugar, water and corn syrup, you can make your own caramel to dip the apples into. In addition to providing a fun and holiday appropriate food to entertain with if you're hosting a Halloween party, the poison toffee apples also make a great center piece.
