  • 6-8 small Granny Smith apples
  • 6-8 popsicle sticks
  • 16 ounce container Pillsbury Creamy White Frosting
  • food coloring color(s) of choice
  • candy googly eyes optional

Other decoration ideas

  • chocolates
  • sprinkles
  • raisins
  • mini-chocolate chips
  • gummy Life-Savers


  • Wash and dry apples.
  • Add one popsicle stick to the center, top of one apple. Repeat with remaining apples and sticks.
  • Remove lid from frosting and place in the microwave for 30-seconds, then stir. Heat for another 10-15 seconds, until frosting is completely melted. Do not over heat, as the frosting will have a harder time sticking. I advise nothing over 45-second, but this is all dependent on your microwave.
  • Stir in food coloring at this time if you so desire.
  • Pour about 1/4 of the frosting into a bowl and set aside for later. You want to do this so that the frosting doesn't spill over the sides when dipping.
  • One apple at a time, completely submerge the apple into the frosting container until the apple is completely covered. Gently shake or twist apple around to get off excess frosting. Place on wax or parchment paper and repeat with remaining apples and frosting.
  • When needed, pour back in the frosting you set aside.
  • Let the apples sit for 5-10 minutes to let frosting set.
  • Place decorations, for instance the candy googly eyes on the apples, gently press in if needed.
  • Let the apples rest for 4-6 hours until hardened.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Total time does not include the time for the frosting to set.
