DIY Candy Apple Bar

Weddings are fun and full of love ... but they can also be filled with a lot of time sitting in chairs. If you don't give your guests a reason to get up from their chairs, they might not. That's why it's important to have different rooms for your guests to enjoy, or games (cornhole is super big right now), or an action station. Or, if you're planning a fall wedding: a DIY candy apple bar.

I pinned this one onto A Bride On A Budget's Pinterest page years ago because it looked so fun. And easy.

And every fall, when I start thinking about what every fall wedding needs, this candy apple bar pops into my head again. That, and having an apple pie instead of a wedding cake. And I don't even like apple pie. I just like the idea of having it at a wedding. Just serve me the cold ice cream and hot caramel, thanks.

DIY Candy Apple Bar

What You'll Need:

What You'll Do:

Stab the apples with candy apple sticks and set them on a plate. Have someone do this before your wedding. They can actually spray them with lemon juice and it will slow any browning caused by the stab.

Set up the sternos to heat the caramel and chocolate.

Put the toppings in their own bowls.

Let your guests have at it.

Please, someone make a candy apple bar for your fall wedding and invite me.

BRIDAL BABBLE: What toppings would you add to your DIY candy apple bar?


  1. This sounds like a wonderful idea because apples are in season and plentiful and make a Candy Apple bar where guest can dip apples in different flavors is what I like I would even do this for a family get together.

  2. Looks messy, but YUMMY! I would have the chocolate and caramel coating, plus crumbled toffee, choco and pb mini chips, chocolate sprinkles.

  5. All these wedding ideas are awesome !!!!

  6. oh wow what a neat idea! I would have nuts, toasted coconut, mini chocolate chips and sprinkles.

  7. Oh my goodness. This is one of the cutest ideas I've ever seen! One my favorite things about Fall is all of the apples. I especially love caramel apples! For toppings, I would definitely have nuts, but I don't like a ton of sweets all mixed together so I'm not sure what else would be good.
