Pink Candy Apples: homemade candy apples just like you used to get at the fair or carnival, but made even better in pretty pink.
For our pink Halloween party, I thought pink candy apples would be the perfect treat -and they were. I decorated mine for Halloween, but you an easily leave off the spiders if you need them for a different celebration.
Today I’m joining my friends for the Seasonal Simplicity Fall Series today, so be sure to check out lots more fun Halloween Treats at the end of this post.
These are the traditional kind of candy apples that you would get at a fair or carnival, usually glossy red. They are hard and crunchy, and that’s exactly how they’re supposed to be. If you’re looking for a soft, creamy caramel apple check out my recipe for those here.
How To Make Your Candy Apples Pink
It was easy to make these apples pink to fit our occasion. In fact, you could make them any colour you like to fit with any party theme or occasion. The trick to making these is to use some white food colouring along with the colour you’re trying to achieve.
Without the white food colouring, the candy would be transparent, and the apple colour would show through, like the traditional red ones. The white makes them opaque and you can add any other colour you like. This soft pink was exactly what we were going for.

As if being pink wasn’t special enough, we added the most beautiful sprinkles to our apples. After the apples were set, it was time to make these pink candy apples extra special.
The trick to adding them was to use some light corn syrup on the set apples as edible “glue”. We started out with a larger plastic non-edible spider and added in lots of sprinkles, nonpareils, spider candies, edible gold stars and edible glitter. The glitter adds the most beautiful sparkle to these.
