Chocolate Apple Recipe!

Simple chocolate apples

I'm not even going to lie to you, I made these back in early September ready for a blog post to go up in October, along with a fair few other autumn/halloween treats which will be featured on the blog later, and I'm not even sorry. I am sat in my PJ's on a Thursday evening in September eating chocolate covered apples which by the way taste AMAZING, I did myself proud (probably cos they're one of the simplest things ever to make, buuuut). Although I say this is a recipe post, they're really simple to make and you probably know how to do, however it gives me a chance to show off the ones I made and also if you're stuck for inspiration of how to decorate them, hopefully this helps!


You WILL need:
-500g of chocolate (white, dark, or milk OR all three, completely up to you!)
-6-8 apples
-Lollypop sticks (I got these from the craft section in Asda)

For decoration I used:

-A variety of sprinkles like these.
-Mini marshmallows (You can get them for 39p from B&M)
and white chocolate.

I would advise purchasing some cocktail sticks for doing any of the patterns in the chocolate!

To create the chocolate apples:

Break up the chocolate into squares and pop into a glass bowl over a boiling pan or a plastic tub and pop in the microwave. Whilst this is melting wash your apples, pull the storks out and then pop in a lollypop stick firmly into each. Once the chocolate is melted you need to dip your apple in, I twirled mine around in the chocolate and this seemed to work well. Then covered them in decorations whilst it was still wet, I used a variety of ideas for this. Following this I set them down to dry on a plate. Do not put these in the fridge or it will be impossible eat the chocolate off them. Leave for around 6 hours.

  1. I love toffee/chocolate apples around Halloween, they are so nostalgic for me, I remember eating them as a child. I smiled when you said you prepared this post in September, I’ve been the same with my autumn posts. Hope you have a fun Halloween! :-) Xx

  2. These look great. I was thinking of doing something like this with my little ones. It's a great way to get them to eat the apples too.
