Chocolate Covered Apple Slices

Chocolate + Apples = AWESOME

I wanted to put this out there chocolate dipped apples are delicious. I had seen a picture on Pinterest and I thought to myself “that looks awesome!” My husband, children and I set out to make our own version of candy apples and came up with this.

It feels silly to share an official recipe because these were “that” simple. We chose 3 apples from our fruit rack and cut them in to slices. The slices couldn’t be too thin or the popsicle stick would literally snap through the apple. So be sure to cut the apple thick enough that you can secure a popsicle stick. In retrospect these were delicious to just pick up off the tray and enjoy even without a stick.

Follow the directions on your chocolate bag to melt. We used semi-sweet nestle chocolate chips. I don’t believe that we actually followed the melting instructions on the bag. I would highly recommend doing so. We added butter to our chocolate chips to smooth out the consistency and thin the chocolate. I would have used crisco or better yet coconut oil but, we did not have either. The butter was a last minute clutch decision. (ha)

I should have done a better job at photographing making these but the process was really fast. We dipped the apples and used what we had on hand to decorate them. The marshmallow and m&m mixture with a drizzle of caramel was awesome! We placed our apples in the refrigerator over night and sampled them after lunch the next day. They were awesome!

We melted the individually wrapped caramel cubes down in the microwave and drizzled them on the apples. I secretly hoped that the caramel would help hold the m&m’s and marshmallows in place. The caramel was delicious when applied very thin.

I want to note this here: *On apples where the caramel clumped a bit we found it was really hard to chew the apples because the caramel was really hard. I think next time we will try the caramel you buy for ice cream sundaes to finish off the apples.

*Believe me I know these look like a mess but they were delicious! My children did all the decorating and were seriously in heaven. I love baking with my kids and this was something where they could just have fun.

      It really is a lot of fun! It’ so easy and the best part is you can personalize it to your tastes really simply! The kids wished we had gummy worms? My husband said next time we will have to have some crushed nuts to add.
