Intimidated by the thought of making your own caramel apples? Lasheeda Perry's got the tips and tricks to ease all your fears. In her 3 Ways to Level Up Caramel Apples class on the Food Network Kitchen app, Lasheeda shows you how to turn ready-made caramel apples into impressive treats (pictured above).

Her Peanut Butter-Trail Mix Caramel Apples require only two ingredients, beyond the aforementioned apples: peanut butter chips and your favorite trail mix! They're simple yet satisfying, and they come together in seconds.

Ginger-Sesame Caramel Apples will please those looking for something a bit on the savory side. Sesame seeds are a great way to give your caramel apples a nutty flavor without using nuts.

For a fun treat that will go over especially well with the kids, look no further than Lasheeda's Cereal-Dipped Caramel Apples. Melt white chocolate chips into a sweet "glue" for apple-cinnamon flavored cereal, dip and eat!

Erin McDowell shares a spooky twist on candy apples in her Poison Apples class. (Don't worry, they're perfectly safe to eat!) These six-ingredient beauties get their green hue from a common pantry staple, liquid food coloring, and they're extra sweet, thanks to a touch of vanilla.

Whether you're ready to try your hand at making your own candy apples or simply looking to dress up store-bought candy apples, the Food Network Kitchen app can help.
