Whether you are looking for a treat for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day or other romantic occasion, or a simple and quick dessert that uses ingredients you likely have on hand at home, follow the step-by-step instructions below in order to make simple and delicious chocolate dipped apples. Pink Ladies are the recommended apple for this recipe, as the tart flavor balances out the sweetness of the chocolate.
- 1 cup of chocolate melting wafers (you can use any baking chocolate or chips but the wafers are foolproof when it comes to melting)
- Toppings like shaved coconut and slivered almonds (optional)
- A glass, microwave-safe measuring cup
- An apple slicer
- A spatula
- Waxed paper to reduce mess
- 4 apples
Step 1: Melt the chocolate wafers in the microwave.
I did this in 30 second increments, and it took approximately 1:30 to melt an entire cup. Stir the chocolate after each 30 second interval to ensure a smooth consistency.
Step 2: Place waxed paper down on the surface where you will be dipping the apples into the chocolate.
Step 4: Now it’s time to dip! Dip one end of the apple slice into the chocolate. Hold to coat.
Step 5: Carefully pull the apple slice out of the chocolate and twist the apple in a circle in order to prevent the chocolate from dripping. You can either place it on the waxed paper, or sprinkle coconut or almonds on top and then put it on the waxed paper.
Step 6: Allow the chocolate to set (or harden). Repeat Steps 4-6 with the remaining apples.
