Are you wondering how to make chocolate dipped apples? Apples, a superfood fruit, sure are good for you, so why not turn them into a delicious and healthy dessert. Dipping them into a relatively low-sugar dark chocolate provides the perfect contrast between sweet and tart. Even better, making this wonderful treat is fairly simple.
How to Make Chocolate Dipped Apples in 5 Easy Steps:
Step 1: Core the apples
Select 2 apples to core. There are two ways you can approach taking the core out of the apple. First, you can buy an apple corer. This device makes it super easy to remove the core. Your other option is to cut the apple in half and cut out the core using a knife. By removing the core your chocolate dipped apples will be more enjoyable to eat. It is also important if you want to stuff your apples with some yummy surprises (see Betsy’s recipe below.)
Step 2: Melt the chocolate
Place 1 cup of dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Pour 1/4 tsp of coconut oil onto the chips. Microwave for thirty seconds and stir. Microwave at 30 second intervals until the chocolate is smooth and creamy. (Hint: The oil helps the chocolate to harden and not stay in liquid form.)
Step 3: Dip your apple into the chocolate
Place your apple into the bowl and swirl it through the chocolate until covered. Use a spoon to scoop any left ober chocolate onto the apple.
Step 4: Let the chocolate dipped apples cool and dry.
Place the apples onto wax paper, place in refrigerator, and allow the chocolate to cool and dry to the touch.
Step 5: The most important part!
Enjoy your chocolate dipped apples!
Yield: 2 apples
Now that you know how to make chocolate dipped apples, it is time to make them into a gourmet treat.
