- Slice the apple into 1/4-inch-thick slices. One at a time, dip the apple slices into the chocolate, making sure to evenly coat them. Each apple slice should have chocolate covering at least three-quarters of its height. Let the excess chocolate drip off.
- Place the slices on the parchment with their non-peanut/non-coconut sides up after pressing one side of each slice into the nuts or coconut. Place in the freezer or refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set. Serve.

- 10 Apples (Granny Smith, Braeburn, or Gala, etc.)
- 16 oz Melting Chocolate (see notes for varieties)
- Hard Toppings
- Drizzle Toppings (White or Dark Chocolate, Caramel, or Peanut Butter)
- 10 Extra-long Lollipop Sticks
- 1 Hammer or kitchen mallet (For crushing candies)
- Wax Paper
- bowls with depth or a container big enough to fit the apple
- Before dipping, apples should be chilled for at least 30 minutes.
- Prepare toppings. Items for crushing, like cookies, should be put in a ziplock bag, and they should be finely crushed with a mallet. Chop nuts or candies finely as necessary because smaller candies and bits will stick better than larger ones. Lay out toppings in small dishes.
- Remove the stems from the apples. Stand the apples on a flat surface, stem side up. Put the lollipop sticks through the apple’s center core and all the way to the bottom. If necessary, use a hammer to tap the stick and force it downward. Alternately, you could cut the apples into slices that are half an inch thick and add the lollipops sticks.
- To make transportation simpler, arrange the bowls of candy bars, spoons, and apples on wax paper on a cookie tray in an assembly line.
- Melt the chocolate. In a heat-safe bowl big enough to hold the apples but not too wide, place the chopped chocolate in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, repeat until smooth.
- Work one apple at a time. To get the chocolate to pool to one side, tilt the container at a 45 degree angle. Insert the apple into the chocolate. Turn and swirl the apple to evenly distribute the chocolate so that the sides are completely covered. If necessary, add more chocolate by spooning it up the sides. Allow to excess to drip off. To remove more quickly, you can give the lollipop stick a light tap against the rim of an empty bowl.
- Dry garnishes like nuts, sprinkles, or chocolate chips ought to be sprinkled on as soon as possible. While the apples are resting in the candy dish, I think it’s best to spoon or press candies onto the sides. To press candies on the apple, you can also lift it, turn it, and set it down on each side. Let the chocolate harden before adding toppings like caramel or peanut butter.
- Set apples on wax paper to cool and harden. Repeat chocolate and candy dipping for the remaining apples. Refrigerate until the outer shell is solid.
Make these chocolate-covered apples for a unique take on a traditional fall treat. These Chocolate-Dipped Apples are simplicity on a stick—much better than bobbing for apples in a tub—and will appeal especially to chocolate lovers.
