Delicious Twists for Your Concession Stand’s Candy Apples

There are few things more delicious that a candy apple, particularly in the fall months, when this treat becomes a staple for the Halloween crowd. To make your candy apples stand out from the crowd, you need to take your creativeness to the next level to tantalize the taste buds in a entirely new way.


We have ideas for creative candy apples that are sure to bring the apple-loving crowds to your concession stand.


Sweets to the Sweet


Once you have your candy apples dipped in the standard chocolate or caramel sugarcoat on the candy apple stoves, kick it up a notch by rolling those apples in other delectable treats while the glaze is still warm and sticky. Candy is a great option for this purpose, since it looks as good as it tastes!


By choosing a delectable display of candy accents in assorted colors, you can produce an enticing display of everyone who passes by your stand. Here are just a few of the candy options to consider:


  • M&M’s – The great part about these colorful candies is that you can get color combinations to coordinate with any holiday or special event.
  • Reeses Pieces
  • Nonpareils
  • Gummi Bears
  • Candy Sprinkles – Again, you have the color combination options that we cited above on the M&Ms.


Once you have a few of these candy-studded apples ready to go, wrap them in clear cellophane and show them off in a colorful collection in a decorative basket or simply line them up along the ledge of your stand for an eye-catching display.


Go Nuts


Nuts and apples go together beautifully, especially if you have a sweet taste in between like chocolate or caramel. These nut-laden treats are equally pretty to look at, even if they aren’t as colorful as the candy treats listed above.


Check out these nutty options to add at your candy apple stoves:


  • Salted Peanuts
  • Cashews
  • Pecans or Walnuts
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Chopped Almonds
  • Mixed Nuts – chopped or whole pieces


Nuts offer a lovely salty accent to a sweet treat and offer the opportunity to combine with other ingredients like coconut or peanut butter for a cacophony of flavor.


Mix and Match


Once you commence playing around with extra ingredients on your candy apples, you can begin creating your signature combinations. How about a Snickers apple, featuring a combination of caramel, chocolate and peanuts? Or a S’mores apple featuring marshmallows, chocolate and graham cracker pieces?


Spend some time over your candy apple stoves, experimenting with a variety of ingredients until you invent a few signature candy apples that are as pretty as they are delightful. This ensures you catch the attention of customers and keep them coming back for more.


While traditional candy apples will never go out of style, the best concession vendors will figure out a way to make their candy apples stand out from the crowd. Spend an afternoon working over your candy apple stoves to create some concoctions your customers will love and not be able to find anywhere else. This helps you build a loyal clientele that will eternally be on the lookout for your signature candy apples to enjoy!
