I’ve fallen head over heels in love with these Poison Apple Cake Pops. They’re so cute on their own but they’re also adorable as toppings for other desserts like eclairs, cakes and cupcakes! If you’re a Disney fan you probably recognize these Poison Apples from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. They’re a tiny replica of the poison apple that the Evil Queen gave to Snow White to put her to sleep. These won’t put you to sleep but they will put a smile on your face!
Let’s make some Poison Apple Cake Pops!
What you need for Poison Apple Cupcakes:
- Cupcakes (Recipe here for some awesome ones here)
- Chocolate Icing (just need a tablespoon or two of icing so canned it great)
- Red Candy Melts
- Green Candy Melts
- Small #2 Piping Tip
- Piping Bags
- Foil or Parchment Paper
- Brown Sprinkles
How to make the mini Poison Apples:
To make these little Poison Apples you’re going to need a few cupcakes and about a tablespoon of frosting. Mix well.
You’re looking for the constancy of playdough, add a little more frosting if needed but don’t make it too soggy.
Roll tablespoon size balls of dough into ball/apple shapes. Pop them into the freezer for about 20 minutes.
Once chilled, melt red candy melts according to package directions. Dip each cake ball into the melted candy melts, tap off excess and set on a piece of foil or parchment paper to harden.
It doesn’t matter if they’re smooth, you’re going to cover most of it with green “poison”.
I can normally cover about 12 apples with 12 ounces of red candy melts.
Adding The Poison to the Poison Apples:
Now, it’s time to add the green poison drip to the apples.
Melt the green candy melts according to the package directions. I normally only do half of the bag at a time with the green because you don’t want it all to harden in the piping bag while you’re working on them.
Fill a piping bag, fitted with a small #2 tip, with the green candy melts. Piping 2 circles and a upside down tear drop onto the front of the “apple”. This will be the eyes and nose. .
Next, pipe some drips around the apple and fill in the top half of the apple with the green candy melts.
Add some green candy melts to a brown sprinkle and stick it on top for the stem.
Let them sit for about 10 minutes or so until the candy melts harden.
Stick a lollipop stick into the bottom of the cake pop and then slide a paper straw over the lollipop stick to dress it up.
I got these paper straws from Sweets and Treats Boutique and I just think they look perfect with them!
Serve them as cake pops or use them to decorate other desserts like eclairs or Poison Apple Cupcakes!
