  • 10 small Granny Smith apples

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or as needed

  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope instant caramel-flavored hot chocolate mix (such as Land O Lakes® Cocoa Classics®)

  • ½ cup boiling water

  • ½ cup coconut milk

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package gelatin (such as Knox ®)

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 drops yellow food coloring

  • ½ cup butterscotch schnapps


  1. Halve apples cutting them from the stem down. Use a melon baller to hollow the apples, leaving enough flesh for the shells to hold their form. Squeeze lemon juice over the apples to reduce browning; arrange onto a baking sheet.

  2. Stir hot chocolate into boiling water in a saucepan off heat until smooth. Stir coconut milk into the cocoa mixture. Sprinkle gelatin over the cocoa mixture and leave undisturbed 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. Place saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir gelatin into the cocoa mixture. Add sugar; stir to dissolve sugar into the mixture. Drop yellow food coloring into the mixture. Remove saucepan from heat and cool mixture slightly.

  4. Pour cocoa mixture into the apple shells. Refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.

  5. Cut each apple half into 4 wedges; serve immediately.
