Nutella Candy Apples – Recipe

These apples are coated in chocolate hazelnut spread and chopped nuts for a twist on the classic fall treat!

These candy apples incorporate Nutella for a twist on the classic fall treat. The Nutella/caramel mixture also makes a great apple dip! Use your imagination for the toppings – I like to use chopped hazelnuts, sprinkles and chocolate chips. This is a fun activity for kids around Halloween! 


  • 6 apples
  • 6 wooden skewers
  • 10 oz baking caramels 
  • 1 cup of Nutella or your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • Optional: Chopped hazelnuts, chocolate chips, chopped peanuts, sprinkles, etc.
  • Cooking spray, baking tray, parchment paper or silicone baking mats


  1. Clean apples and remove their stems.
  2. Insert a skewer into the tops of each apple.
  3. Line the baking trays with parchment paper or silicone mats, set aside.
  4. In a sauce pan on the stove or a microwave safe bowl in the microwave, melt the caramel, milk and Nutella together. Stir continuously and do not let the mixture burn. Note: If you are using a microwave, melt mixture in 30 second increments, stirring in between.
  5. When the mixture is melted and well combined, dip each apple in to fully coat. Sprinkle with the optional toppings and place on the prepared baking trays.
  6. Once completed, place trays in the fridge to let the caramel and Nutella mixture set for atleast an hour.
