Quick & Delicious Chocolate Covered Apple Treats
Prep Time: 10
Cook Time: 10
Ingredients (4 apples, 8-10 servings)
- 4 apples
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 15 caramel candies, to melt
- Any toppings you'd like; M&Ms, pretzels, sprinkles
Slice apples with a sharp knife into 1/2" slices.
Cut a small slit into the bottom of each slice to insert the popsicle/lollipop stick.
Use a double boiler or microwave to melt chocolate. If using a double boiler, let the bottom pot of water boil before adding chocolate chips to the top pot!
Set up a cookie sheet and lay a flat piece of wax paper atop of the sheet.
Begin to dip the apples into the chocolate, cover completely. Lay flat on the baking sheet and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes, or until semi hardened.
Melt caramel candies in increments. I prefer the microwave for this step over a double boiler since caramel burns easily; heat 40 seconds, stir, heat 15 seconds.
Drizzle caramel sauce onto the apples as desired. Add toppings, and re-place the apples in the refrigerator until hardened.
Serve and enjoy!
