Never Miss a Delicious Recipe:

Cute Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl

October is the month when we celebrate Halloween… It is also time for our chocolate party celebration!  Yes, the day has arrived once again.  This time, our secret ingredient is candy.  Oh, how delightful!  Well, to commemorate both occasions, I made a special treat: Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owls!!!  Isn’t that just the cutest little treat?  My children are as happy as can be.  I hope that yours will be also!

Our Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl is much funnier and quicker to make than cupcakes.  I am telling you, kids go crazy for it.  Well, who wouldn’t?  I am an adult, and am cuckoo-crazy for this delicious, easy Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl.

This Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl is also a great Halloween cooking project to get children involved in. Mostly all that you need is sliced apples, melted chocolate, oreos, and candies to decorate.  I don’t know anything that could be easier to prepare than this Chocolate-Apple Halloween Owl.

At any rate, if you still wish to add cupcakes to your party, I have a great one for you: Our SPOOKY Brigadeiro Cupcakes — decorated three different ways.  I would also to encourage you to check out our other chocolate party treats below.  They are all to die for!

Chocolate Apple Halloween Owl...So cute!!! A great Halloween project for children!

Have a wonderful month, and a fun Halloween!

  1. Sit apples upright on a wood board and slice from top to bottom (about 4 slices per apple, 1/2-inch thick). Remove seeds gently. Then, line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and push the pointed end of each stick up into the bottom of each apple slice.
  2. In a medium glass bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave according to the package directions, place bowl into a larger bowl filled with about 2-inch boiling water (this will help chocolate to not harden), and dip apple slices in chocolate using a spoon to help cover each slice if your bowl isn't deep enough to cover them.
  3. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, then lay flat on the foil-lined baking sheet. Use the oreos to decorate both the eyes and ears of the owl and the candy corn for the nose while chocolate is still wet. Use a small dot of melted chocolate as a glue for the candy eyeballs. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for approximately 10-15 minutes, allowing chocolate to harden. If you wish, decorate the wood stick with a ribbon. Serve chocolate-apple Halloween owl and enjoy! Inactive Time: 10-15 minutes

    Brilliant, Denise! I’ve seen similar owls on Pinterest and have been wanting to make them. And voilà! I have the best instructions from a very trusted source =) I love, love, love your idea, too, of contrasting a tart GrannySmith (instead of cupcake) with the candy corn and chocolate and cookies =) Obligada!

    • Denise Browning October 7, 2013 at 4:19 pm #

      We’re welcome, The Ninja Baker! I saw a similar owl design on cupcakes. They inspired me to make with apples. I hope you make this treat and enjoy.

  27. Laura October 25, 2013 at 11:55 pm #

    These are SO CUTE!!! Seriously, you get the super creative award!

  28. Genevieve October 26, 2014 at 7:00 pm #

    These are so great. Halloween is on Friday but I wanted to make them today. Do you think I can make them 5 days ahead of time?

    • Denise Browning October 26, 2014 at 8:40 pm #

      Thanks a lot for stopping by. To make these owls 5 days ahead as you want, I’d slice the apples the way presented in my recipe and then, I’d follow the process below to prevent the apple to become brown, staying fresh for days:
      One day or two before serving them, I’d cover them in chocolate, decorate, and refrigerate according to my recipe. About 5 minutes before serving them, I’d let them rest at room temp so they wouldn’t be hard to bite. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!!!

  29. Genevieve October 27, 2014 at 9:19 am #

    Thank you so much! That’s very helpful. 🙂

  30. Brittany October 29, 2014 at 10:36 pm #

    Is there a trick to getting the Oreo creme to come out perfectly on one side of the cookie? I’m trying to make the Halloween owls right now and having trouble with the Oreos… We’re having lots of ‘do-overs’… Haha! I’ve tried the twisting method, pulling really fast, using a knife and haven’t seen one method work too well yet. Any helpful tips would be great! Thanks!

    • Denise Browning October 30, 2014 at 8:28 am #

      Hi, Brittany!
      I only saw your message this morning. Sorry!
      I know how difficult it is to keep the cream intact. I also had several do-overs. What might work is to leave the cookies for a minute or two on top of a heated baking sheet (lined with parchment paper) so the cream can soften a bit, and then the top comes off more easily when gently twisted, or you can also use a paring knife to help you separate the softened cream from the top cookie, working carefully. You may have to smooth over the top layer of the cream with a small, non-serrated knife and let harden again. I hope these suggestions work out better for you.

      • Brittany October 31, 2014 at 12:13 am #

        Thanks, Denise, for the tip! I finally got into a groove and was able to make 24 of these Halloween owls for a party at work tomorrow! So excited and they turned out great!

        Is it recommended to just put these in the fridge or does a freezer work too? Our party at work is around noon and with only one small fridge in the office, I wasn’t sure if freezing these overnight would help them keep longer tomorrow in case there isn’t room in our fridge. Any thoughts on that?

        • Denise Browning October 31, 2014 at 8:24 am #

          Please, store them in the refrigerator only!!! The freezer can make the chocolate crack and the treats hard to bite. In addition, once the treats come to room temperature, they would be watery. It is best to store in the refrigerator. Take them out about 5 minutes prior to serve. Wishing you all a Happy Halloween.

  31. Roshani Khanna September 12, 2016 at 7:10 am #

    Oh my! Hubby would love this! Pinning now! Thanks for sharing!!

  32. Shilpa Malhotra September 19, 2016 at 6:28 am #

    Such a great idea. Love the flavors in these! My boys would devour them quickly.

  33. Shilpa May 9, 2017 at 3:34 am #
