A Dark Twist On A Classic Treat

Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters this weekend, putting a wicked spin on a classic fairy tale. Bring your guests over to the dark side with just a taste of this poison apple party dip. This recipe may seem dangerous, but after just one bite you won't be able to resist a double dip.

Poison Apple Party Dip


  • 2 large apples
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Optional items to make it look like a poisonous, shimmering, fairy-tale apple:

  • Green food coloring
  • 1 egg white
  • Red sanding sugar
  • 1 midgee-sized Tootsie Roll
  • 1 green gummi slice

To make the "poisonous" dip:

Mix cream cheese on medium speed until creamy. Add brown sugar, honey and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add green food coloring (optional).

To make the shimmering, fairy-tale apple:

Cut off the top quarter of the apple. Using a melon baller, carefully hollow out the inside of the top and bottom.

Whisk one egg white in a bowl and brush it onto the surface of the top and bottom apple pieces.
Roll the apple pieces in red sanding sugar to coat.

To make the apple stem:

Roll a Tootsie Roll between your hands to soften and elongate it.

Roll it around a toothpick and shape it like an apple stem, leaving the bottom 1/2-inch for inserting into the apple top.

Insert another toothpick into the green gummi slice, leaving 1/2-inch for inserting into the apple top. Stick both pieces into the top of the apple.

Allow them to dry on a wire baking rack.

When the apple surfaces are dry, fill the hollow apple bottom with the "poisonous" dip.

Slice up the other apple for dipping.

Is this something you could make the night before & just not put the dip in the apple till just before serving?

Such a fun and intersting idea! I am totally going to try this out next time I host a get-together.

What an interesting idea! I love the way the apple is used as a bowl. I wouldn't mind eating it afterward! Ha!
