Bloody Candy Apples Halloween Recipe

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So, I sort of loved True Blood (not the newer seasons, they are doo doo) and always wanted to create a recipe inspired by the book/series. But alas I cannot plan for that because I suck at keeping tabs on when a season commences(or ANY show for that matter), plus the date of its finale.

 

It just starts recording on my DVR and then I know. I can barely keep track of what ridiculous new fairy power Sookie has this time. Or a pixie? I don’t remember.

 

I am double dipping and making a True Blood/Halloween recipe. That way if you hate one theme you can just love my recipe for the other. If you hate both then I click my tongue out of pity for you.

 

Use of vampires as an obvious similarity aside, True Blood is basically Halloween every day of the year. So they celebrate 365 days a year. *Note: Some potential spoilers ahead, maybe?

 

Halloween: Culturally acceptable for men to wear makeup and women’s clothes.

True Blood: Lafayette wears makeup and women’s clothes. Always.

Halloween: Women wear inaprops costume, flaunting their bods.

Jessica: Wears inaprops outfits, flaunting her bod. Almost always. (She rocks it.)

 

Halloween: Kids going absolutely psycho over candy. As in, would smother their faces with and roll in it if they could.

Vampires: Going absolutely psycho over fairy blood. As in, would smother their faces with and roll in it if they could.

Halloween: Created as a day to remember the dead.

True Blood: Vampires are sort of dead always. For eternity. (Unless they meet the TRUE death.)

 

Halloween: Some people believe that Halloween is the worship of Satan and all evil.

True Blood: Steven Newlin for a time and Sarah Newlin believe that vampires are like Satan’ children and are evil. Or something like that. I should pay better attention.

Make bloody candy apples and watch True Blood. Wine helps too.

Begin by melting white chocolate.

You can do this by pouring water into a saucepan. Place a heat safe bowl on top. The water should touch the bottom of the bowl without overflowing and pouring out.  Turn heat to low. Pour in white chocolate and stir until creamy and melted.

Dip in white chocolate and allow excess to drip off.

Place on aluminum foil and allow to set.

 

*Tip: pour out the rest of melted white chocolate onto a piece of aluminum foil. Once it hardens, break up and store in bag for future use.

Now combine sugar, hot water, and corn syrup. Mix on low until sugar is dissolved, then turn heat to high. Use candy thermometer to measure when boiling sugar has reached 290 degrees.

Immediately remove from stove and add food coloring as well as flavoring. Stir until it cools a little.

 

Once it has begun to thicken, use a flat spatula to drip melted red candy down the sides of the apple.

Make certain to touch the sugar against apple, right above where chocolate starts, then let it drip down. You can practice first on a bare apple. You basically want to spread the sugar across the top above white chocolate and drip down every couple of centimeters to allow it to fall down. I find I can manage 2-3 good drips before I spread, but I like to be careful and make sure everything looks nice.

 

If the sugar hardens and become too difficult to work with, you can reheat on the stove. Just place on low heat until it softens.

See how little strings form when moving spatula between saucepan and apples? DO NOT TOUCH THEM RIGHT AWAY! Once the sugar has completely cooled and hardened, you can snap all of the strings off to neaten them up.

  5. I only watched a season or 2 of True Blood because we don’t have HBO or Show Time (I forgot which channel it’s on). I’d see it at friend’s houses. I read most of the series and really enjoyed that. I’m sorry to hear they got overly gruesome on the show. I’ll have to try your recipe because I love Halloween.

      @diana, if you have instagram, you can tag @1finecookie. Also, feel free to share it on the Facebook page. Let me know what your page is as well.

      You do not need to refrigerate. It could actually make the candy sticky. Just a dry area, room temperature is best.
