Get ready for a wickedly sweet Halloween with this symbiote-inspired treat!

To create these Venom-inspired candy apples yourself, you'll need...

  • 4-5 green apples
  • 4-5 wooden dowels
  • 24 ounces black candy melts
  • White fondant
  • Strawberry fruit leather
  • White icing


  • Roll out the fondant and cut out 5 sets of Venom’s eyes. Set aside.
  • Wash and dry apples. Remove stems, then use a hammer to insert the dowels into the apples.
  • Prep a baking sheet with parchment sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • In a double boiler, melt the candy melts.
  • Dip the apples into the candy melts, then place on the prepped baking sheet.
  • Use white icing to place the fondant eyes.
  • With a #3 tip, pipe the white icing to create Venom’s teeth.
  • Cut a strip of fruit leather to a point, then use the icing to adhere the tongue to the mouth.
  • When the icing is set, the apples are ready to serve.
  • Enjoy!
