To Hell with haunted houses, vampires and creatures of the night, what scares us parents the most on Halloween is sweets and cakes of all kinds that invade our supermarkets shelves! After a summer filled with fruit, sun and fresh vegetables, we have no desire to feed our children with sweet junk, full of dyes and additives.
That's why we've prepared for you and your kids a list of easy, spooky and healthy recipe ideas. Halloween yes, but a healthy Halloween.
Apples are a firm favorite for fall, but this recipe spices them up and makes them little more scary for Halloween. Here, the traditional red caramel is replaced with a black color. The result is as beautiful as it is delicious. Young and old will enjoy chewing in these pretty apples.
Wash and dry the apples. Remove the tail, then push wooden sticks until 2/3 of the apple, without drilling. Book.
Pour the sugar into a saucepan. Add the water. Bring to a boil then turn the heat slightly to prevent the caramel from burning and let simmer until the mixture turns golden brown. To check the cooking, drop a drop of caramel in a glass of water: the drop should solidify immediately. Remove the pan from the heat when ready
Add the dye drop by drop while mixing well.
Dip the apples into the black caramel, coating them well, then place them, stick up, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Let cool for 40 minutes at room temperature. Refrigerate for 1 hour then enjoy.
