Apple Milkshake Filling

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sweet red apple (like gala or jazz), peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Candy Apple Coating

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp cherry extract
  • 3-4 drops red food coloring

Apple Pie Milkshake

  • 1 cup apple pie filling
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Whipped Cream for topping, optional


  • To make the apple filling, melt butter in a medium sized pan over medium high heat.
  • Add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt and cook while stirring until apples are softened, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature or place in a small bowl and refrigerate until cold.
  • To make the candy apple coating, place sugar, water, corn syrup, and food coloring in a small sauce pan over medium heat and stir to combine.
  • Cook sugar mixture until large bubbles begin to form, about 8 minutes (depending on your stove, so keep a close eye on it.) Mixture should coat the back of your spoon. Remove from heat and allow to cool down for about 10 minutes.
  • Once cooled, carefully dip the rims of your glasses into the sugar coating and allow to slowly drip down the sides.
  • To make the milkshake, combine apple pie filling, ice cream, milk, and vanilla in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into glasses, top with whipped cream, add a straw and a marshmallow skull lollipop and serve immediately.
