Planning a Halloween party?

Heading to a potluck?

Promise to make treats for your kid's entire class or everybody at the office?

Stick with a tried and true Halloween favorite: candy apples.

Dip them in a candy mixture, caramel, or chocolate, they're all candy apples, and they can do double-duty as food and decor.

Anyway, no one ever refuses food on a stick.

1. The Basic Candy Apple

The traditional candy apple is delicious even at its most basic.

Making them at home isn't difficult at all, especially with this recipe.2

This involves making your own candy coating, which means you can make your apples as brilliantly red as you like or you can experiment with different colors.

However, you can also melt down candy instead – I suggest Jolly Ranchers because the results are awesome.

2. The Basic Caramel Apple

Honestly, you can follow any basic recipe whether it instructs you to make your own caramel or to melt down caramel squares.

Do you, especially if you've made them before (and they turned out well, of course).

3. Orange Candy Apples

So, here's an example of just how you can change the color of your candy apples.

I confess, however, when I first saw this recipe, I thought perhaps the coating would be orange flavored, which intrigued me.

If you thought the same thing, I do not want you to suffer my disappointment: a little orange flavoring goes a long way, whether you use a squeeze of fresh juice, some zest, or even orange-flavored liqueur for a more adult candy apple.

You're welcome.

4. Candy Apple Monsters

Besides, it's a cute alternative for actual apples and anyway, when is it not a good time for cake?
