These dark chocolate covered apple slices are such a fun, kid-friendly, easy snack or light dessert! SO much easier to make (and eat) than caramel apples, and you can customize with your favorite toppings. Perfect for an after-school fall snack!
- 4 apples, sliced about 1/4" thick (Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Fuji, etc)
- 12 oz dark chocolate, melted
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (optional)
- Topping ideas: caramel, chopped nuts, seeds, sprinkles, coconut, crushed cookies, mini chocolate chips, flaky salt, dried fruit, candy, graham cracker crumbs, mini marshmallows, etc.
- Wash apples and dry thoroughly. Slice into thin-ish (1/4") slices and remove any seeds/stem. Insert popsicle sticks through the bottom. If the slices are too thin, the slice may break in half, so do one or two test trials before slicing all of your apples.
- Add chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) to a heat-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring well between each interval, until completely melted. Optional: add 1 tbsp coconut oil to thin it out (makes it easier to dip).
- Dip each apple slice in chocolate, using a spoon to coat the entire slice. Let excess chocolate drip off, then transfer to a parchment paper-lined tray.
- Add dry toppings like nuts, cookies, sprinkles, chocolate chips, coconut, etc right away. Refrigerate or freeze until solid. For toppings like caramel or peanut butter, let the chocolate harden first before topping. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Don't want quite as much chocolate? Drizzle the slices instead of dipping. Note: since these are not completely encased in chocolate, they won't last for quite as long in the refrigerator.
You can use flat popsicle sticks or paper lollipop sticks (like we used here).
