Dress up your caramel apples this Halloween by dipping them in melted chocolate and decorating them with modeling chocolate or fondant to look like a cauldron.

You can use store bought caramel apples to make quick work of this recipe, but if you choose to make your own caramel apples, be sure to push the stick in at an angle so that it looks like a big spoon stirring the cauldron. These caramel apple cauldrons can be dipped in tempered pure chocolate or melted confectionery coating/candy melts, whichever you prefer. The candy melts are easier to work with, but don't have the rich luscious flavor of pure semi-sweet chocolate which can be difficult to temper properly. If you don't have a lot of experience working with chocolate, you might want to click here to read some very helpful chocolate making tips. Modeling chocolate/chocolate clay is used to decorate the chocolate dipped caramel apple and is simple to make, but store bought fondant can easily be substituted.
