I think that the Shrunken Head Apple Cider is best to be drunk after the game of bobbing for apples.

I wish I had my Shrunken Head Apple Cider with me when I was bobbing for apples on a Halloween Cruise I was on!



Prep Time

20 minutes

Cook Time

40 minutes


4 apples, peeled, cut in half, and cored

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon sugar

16 cloves

1 gallon apple cider

1/4 cup lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350°F and line a sheet pan with greased foil. Carve two eyes, a nose, and mouth into the round side of each apple half using a toothpick or small spoon. Toss the apples with cinnamon and sugar and bake, face side up, for 30 minutes. Stick a clove into each eye socket. Fill a large pot with apple cider. Add lemon juice and baked apples and warm over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
