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.
A Dark Twist On A Classic Treat
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.
