Chocolate Covered Apples

Updated on April 15, 2015

I love cooking & creating my own fun food masterpieces. I also enjoy sharing my own recipes including my decorative cake & cupcake tutorials


Chocolate Covered Apples are Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat

Chocolate Covered Apples are more aptly described as Chocolate Dipped Apples since the entire apple slice is not covered with chocolate. Regardless of which name you prefer, they are still quite delicious and easy to make. They are so easy to make that in just a few minutes, you can be enjoying your own Chocolate Covered Apple Slice. The only remaining decision is whether you are willing to share your treat.

If you love apples and you love chocolate, you are certain to enjoy Chocolate Covered Apples.

Below, I share step by step instructions with photos for Chocolate Covered or Dipped Apples.


Supplies & Ingredients

  • Apples
  • Chocolate for Melting ~ I prefer Saco Dolci Frutta featured below
  • Wax Paper

My Cooking Motto

Fast & Easy

Chocolate for Melting and Covering Fruit
Chocolate for Melting and Covering Fruit | Source

Easy Directions

Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Apples.

Step 2: Wash and Dry Your Apples

Step 3: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.

Step 4: Cut Your Apple into Slices

Step 5: Dip the Apple Slices into the chocolate

Step 6: Set on wax paper to cool

Step 7: When you have dipped all of your Apple slices in chocolate, serve or eat.

Best if not refrigerated

      Ooh that sounds yummy. I am a big fan of Apples dipped in peanut butter -- which is a great way to get kids to eat them -- so I can only imagine how good they must be in Chocolate. Blessed.

      Thanksgiving blessings. Something that even my kids can eat. We use 60% Ghiradeli chips for the chocolate content, which would work nicely with this recipe.

      You know anything is better with a little chocolate on it. I never thought of using apples though. Great idea as my tree has just produced a bountiful crop and I'm freezing, baking eating them as fast as I can. :)

      My son went to an apple orchard last weekend with his friends and brought home a ton of apples. They are really tasty, but we have thought of all our favorite apple recipes and there are still a ton. So, now I know what we will be doing with some of them tomorrow! Thanks for the delicious idea. :D

      Oh my, chocolate dipped apple slices, whatever next! Have to admit, this looks like a great idea. Obviously I'll be buying several of those containers of chocolate for dipping to keep up with all your ideas!

      julieannbrady 7 years ago

      Oh? My dear you are on a chocolate binge! Ha ha ha ... seriously ... this one did interest me in that I would take a really tart granny smith apple to dip in chocolate as the tart would complement the slightly sweet coating. Hmmm, now what are YOU dipping next in that chocolate my dear? Love ya!!!

    • mbgphoto profile image

      Mary Beth Granger 7 years ago from O'Fallon, Missouri, USA

      This sounds good. How about spreading a little peanut butter on the apple first and then dipping in chocolate?

      Another good lens for your niche.
