Chocolate Dipped Apples
By Paula Deen
- Prep time: 20 minutes
- Cook time: 2 minutes
- Servings: 4 apples
- Nuts (or other dessert toppings such as candies, sprinkles, etc.)
- 8 oz white chocolate
- 16 oz (milk or dark instead if you prefer) semi-sweet chocolate
- 4 (or Roma apples) Granny Smith apples
- 12 wooden ice pop sticks
Arrange toppings in medium sized bowls.
Wash and thoroughly dry the apples. Insert bamboo or wooden sticks into apple cores. Melt each kind of chocolate in separate bowls over double boilers. 1 at a time, gently dip the apples into the chocolate and roll around, making sure to thoroughly cover. Place on waxed paper. Using a spoon or wooden stick, carefully drizzle the white chocolate over the chocolate-covered apples. Use the thin side of the popsicle stick to make swirls and decorative patterns. Dip the apples into topping bowls or sprinkle toppings over the apples. Place decorated apples on waxed paper and refrigerate for 15 minutes to harden.
