Bad, bad witch. The mean old crone from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves didn't just give witches and step-mothers a bad name, she did apples a permanent disservice. After reading that scary-tale, no child (or adult for that matter) can ever look at apples the same way again—no matter how wholesome and full of Vitamins A and C they may be.

This Halloween, put your fears to rest and your tastebuds to the test with a sweet "disguise" for the crunchy fruit—a medley of sweet dippers and dunkers that make a good apple just naughty enough to be fun. Now that's a neat trick.
