Give-away: The Poisoned Apples

Hello Again Sweets! I thought we might have time to squueeze in 1 more fabulous Halloween give-away from one of my favorite ETSY shops! This weeks give-away is truly delicious! It features your choice of 'Poisoned Apples.' These {goulishly} delighful Caramel Apples are dipped in a rich, {to-die-for} caramel (whose recipe originates with Great Great Great Aunt Uriel.) Each is then adorned with twisted decor - from spiders and bats, to zombie flesh. All apples are hand created by the spooktacular Lesa, owner of ♥The Poisoned Apples♥.

My choice: The Poisoned Apples' {signature} Caramel Apple, dipped in black chocolate with a white fondant skull and red chocolate blood. {Hello Snow White}
