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
- Cocktail Sticks
- 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)
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 cover them in decorations whilst they’re still wet, have fun with this part, it’s where they get their character from.
- Following this set them down to dry on a plate. Do not put these in the fridge or it will be impossible to eat the chocolate off them. Leave for around 6 hours.
