Chocolate dipped apples are a treat for all to enjoy. This dessert is very simple to make and only contains two ingredients -- apples and chocolate. Similar to a candy or caramel apple, chocolate dipped apples are hand-dipped and served on wooden craft sticks. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, gift wrap in cellophane and give them out as gifts to friends and family. This simple chocolate dipped apples recipe is one that chocolate and fruit-lovers alike will enjoy.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 8 small to medium-sized red or green apples
  • 900 grams (32 oz.) semisweet chocolate
  • 8 wooden craft sticks
  • Flat baking pan or baking tray
  • Waxed paper
  • Chopped nuts (optional)

  1. 1

    Wash apples, remove stems, and insert wooden craft sticks into the area where you removed the stems. Press firmly to fit the craft stick snugly into the apple.

  2. 2

    Melt semisweet chocolate. Many brands of semisweet chocolate are available to choose from, with varieties that come in tubs, in the form of morsels or chips, or in bars. Melt the chocolate using the double-boiler method, or via microwave. Stir the chocolate to make sure that it's fully melted.

  3. 3

    Take an apple by the stick and dip it into the melted chocolate, rolling it in a circular motion until the entire apple is coated. Continue this process until you have coated all apples with chocolate.

  4. 4

    Sprinkle chopped nuts, if desired, onto the chocolate dipped apples before allowing to set.

  5. 5

    Place the chocolate dipped apples onto a flat baking pan or baking tray lined with waxed paper. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 30 to 45 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
