Ingredients for Chocolate Covered Apple Slices
- Apples– I use both Granny Smith for a tangy flavor and Gala for a sweet flavor(I like with Granny Smith a little bit more)
- Chocolate– I use semi-sweet 60% cocoa and white chocolate
- Chocolate Chips– I use it for the eyes, if you don’t have it, you can make a dot with your melted chocolate as well.
I use wooden popsicle sticks.
Why You Should Make These Chocolate Dipped Apples
- They are fun to make.
- These chocolate covered apples are easy to make with your kids. You can be creative as much as you want; you can make spiders or other designs if you like.
- Semi-sweet chocolate covered apples with a white chocolate drizzle taste yummy.
How to Make Chocolate Covered Apples
First, wash the apples and dry well. Cut the apples into ½ inch thick slices. It makes almost 4-5 big, 2 small slices out of 1 medium-large apple.
Put the apple slices on a paper towel to let them dry as much as they can.
Make a small slit to the bottom of the slices so you can insert the wooden stick easily.
Then melt the chocolate over bain-marie. Fill a medium saucepan that is large enough to hold a heatproof bowl. Fill the saucepan with almost 1,2 to 2 inches (3-5cm) of water and place it over med-high heat and bring it to a simmer.
When it simmers, reduce the heat to medium and place the heatproof bowl that is full of chopped semi-sweet chocolate over the saucepan. Make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the simmering water if it does you should reduce the water amount. Stir often with a spoon or spatula.
Dip the apples into chocolate. Chocolate can reach the meeting point of apples and sticks; so the chocolate will also work as a glue.
In the beginning, you can totally dip the apples into chocolate. But as continue with other apples, the amount of chocolate will become less. So at this point, first dip half of the apples and then spread it with a knife. Place the chocolate covered apples into the fridge to let the chocolate set for almost 20 minutes.
While the chocolate is setting, melt the white chocolate over a bain-marie.
Place the melted chocolate into a piping bag or a ziplock bag, make a small cut from the top. Pipe small circles to make the eyes. Add chocolate chips over the white circles. You can use the front side or the back of the chips, they both look good.
Then start to drizzle the chocolate. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
