  • Place the chocolate into a metal or glass bowl and set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until melted. Remove from the heat. Dip apples into the melted chocolate, turning to coat completely. Dip or roll in candy or nuts, then place on a sheet of waxed paper. Repeat with remaining apples. Allow apples to set at room temperature until the chocolate is firm, about 20 minutes, before serving.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Excellent! I used Honey Crisp apples and semisweet chocolate. Sprinkled with sundae nuts and some fall leaf sprinks. I had NO trouble with the chocolate not sticking - in fact it stuck pretty thickly. Yum. Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

SO easy and the apples came out looking "professional." I used a 24 ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I had enough to make 13 small-ish apples. Of course after you roll the apples in various toppings the apples look HUGE!:o) I made a variety- macadamia pecan coconut heath and plain. No problems at all with the toppings sticking. I did have to let them sit overnight to harden before wrapping them up. These will be perfect for the fundraiser we are doing. Thanks! Read More

I chose to make smore's chocolate apples I first dipped in chocolate (used ghiradelli semisweet bars) let cool a bit at room temp (the toppings will drip off if you don't cool the chocolate first I waited till the chocolate started to get a little shiny) then sprinkled with mini semisweet chips rolled in crushed graham crackers stuck on mini marshmallows by hand =P then after cooling in fridge on parchment until chocolate hardens I melted some white chocolate and drizzled them. Put back in fridge till set. Quarter them for easier eating. Read More

These were delicious and easy to make. The tart apples with the sweet chocolate made a wonderful combination and they looked beautiful. I agree with another reader that the toppings would not stick to the apple. After attempting toppings with a test apple I left off the toppings on the others. After an hour at room temperature the apples weren't completely dry. I placed them in the refrigerator overnight on waxed paper and they hardened perfectly. I was able to make 11 large apples with 1 1/2 lbs. chocolate and I had some left over to make chocolate covered marshmallows. I will make these again next fall. Read More

Easy easy!! Apples were cold from refrigerator - no problem with chocolate sticking. Found rolling the apples in the coating messy and difficult - so sprinkled the coating around the apples. Worked well! Will definitely make again! Read More
