Halloween—and, by default, October—is more about the treats than the tricks. And the perfect combination of holiday sweetness and fall wholesomeness is the caramel apple. Get into the spirit of the season by stuffing and rolling

Or just dip apple slices in our caramel coating for a simpler Halloween sugar high. Each recipe includes tips for prepping, making, and storing the apples—and ideas for what to do with any leftover caramel.
