Homemade Chocolate Covered Apples

Made these babies last night.  They were a hit.

Ingredients

  • 2 very large Honey Crisp apples
  • 2 1/2 cups  Dark chocolate waffers
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup caramels, melted
  • Chopped nuts or whatever you want to put on them
  • Popsicle sticks

Instructions

  1. Slice apples into 1/2″ pieces. With a knife make a little slit in the bottom of each apple slice to make it easier to insert a popsicle stick.
  2. Melt chips in the microwave on high for about 2 minutes.* Stir in coconut oil until smooth. Dip apple slices in chocolate and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Place caramels in microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 45-60 seconds.* Do NOT overheat. Stir until smooth. Drizzle melted caramel over chocolate and sprinkle with nuts.
  4. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Serve and enjoy immediately. Apples are best the first day. Store in refrigerator.
  5. *For best results, follow the chocolate chip package instructions for melting chocolate and same for caramel. Follow the caramel package instructions for melting caramels.
  6. Note: If you’re concerned about biting into an apple seed, just remove them before dipping the apple slice in chocolate.
