Oh how I’ve missed baking. I think of something that I want and I usually go to the kitchen and bake it. It’s been a hard struggle not to be able to do that! So when my Mom came and stayed with me for a couple of days I took full advantage of her baking ability. These little cuties were her idea. There are just as delicious as they are cute. Strawberries aren’t the only fruit you can cover in chocolate. We attempted covering them in caramel first, but that proved to be impossible. If anyone knows any good tricks, let me know, because they tasted fantastic, but the apples were much too moist to hold the caramel on. It just dripped off onto the wax paper and all that was left was a soggy apple. But the chocolate stayed on perfectly. And the flavor combination was amazing. Give them a try!
Chocolate Covered Apple Bites
You will need:
4 inch lollipop sticks
granny smith apples
chocolate of your choice
chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, toffee bits (optional)
1. With a melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Pat the apple pieces dry. Place a lollipop stick into each apple ball and dip in melted chocolate. Roll apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils or toffee bits, if desired. Place on parchment paper until set.
