Apple Votives

I discovered this at marthastewart.com. It is such a great idea! A twist on the traditional Halloween carnival favorite: bobbing for apples.
You take a steel tub, or you could use one of those metal drink tubs, and fill with water and apples with votives in them. This would be great on a front porch for a Halloween party or for trick or treaters. It would also be great on a deck or patio. Martha's website said to test the apples first to see how they float, then mark the top with a dot. Place your votive over the dot and cut around it with a utility knife, cutting down as deep as the votive. Then spoon out apple to fit votive inside. Squeeze lemon juice into the cut part to prevent the apple from turning brown. Then insert the votive and light. What a warm inviting sight! I cannot wait to try this!
