Fun and Easy Easter Treats

Screen Shot 2017-04-12 at 11.13.00 AM


Many of my favorite childhood memories with my grandmother were in her kitchen. Her love and patients were endless and she always made all of her grandchildren feel special. I’m always looking for fun and easy cooking things I can do in the kitchen with my grandchildren. I recently ran across this recipe for making “marbleized candy-coated apples. With Easter coming up I thought this would be somewhat of a healthy treat for their Easter baskets (ok, I’m reaching a little here with the “healthy bit”). This is not very complicated and most all ages should be able to help in some capacity with adult supervision.


You will need;

Candy Melts (available at Walmart, Michael’s, or Hobby Lobby)

2 bags of the base color and 2 accent colors 1 bag each.

6 -8 small washed apples

Lollipop sticks


In a 2 cup measuring cup melt both bags of the base color according to package directions.

Melt the accent Candy Melts in separate containers.

Place a lollipop stick in each apple and get ready for some fun.

Drizzle some of both accent colors over the top of the base color in a crisscross pattern.

As you dip the apple use a downward turning motion but don’t double dip.

You will need to add more accent colors about every other apple.

Placed candy covered apples on wax or parchment paper to dry/harden.

These would be super cute with colored sprinkles, colored sugar or even chopped nuts.


Pictured are my first attempt, I used orange as the base with 3 accent colors white, pink, and purple. I think 2 colors would work better. Also next time I will use smaller apples so they will fit all the way down in the base color.

When you are making memories the journey is what’s important. Regardless of what they look like, I promise they will taste great and you will have a lot of fun making them.


PS Dip pretzels, potato chips, or maybe even a peep or 2 in any leftover melted candy
