Description

these easy dark chocolate covered apples come together quickly then just need to set in the fridge making for the perfect combo of sweet & salty!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium macintosh apple, cored and sliced into wedges (I recommend squeezing a little lemon juice on the wedges to help preserve the apple)
  • 1.5 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped (I used a food processor and pulsed until small crumbs formed – just be careful not to go too long or you’ll end up with peanut butter!)

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Over a double boiler (aka a heat-proof dish over a boiling pot of water), melt the dark chocolate chips
  3. Dip apple wedges into melted chocolate, covering thoroughly then scoop out with a fork and gently tap the fork on the edge of the bowl until most of the excess chocolate has fallen off
  4. Place the chocolate covered apple on the parchment paper and immediately top with crushed peanuts
  5. Repeat until all wedges have been covered
  6. Place parchment sheet lined pan in the refrigerator and allow chocolate to harden for several hours
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to a few days

Notes

I hand-sprinkled the peanuts over the apple wedges in lieu of dipping the freshly chocolate dipped wedges into the chopped peanut bowl.
