Last Sunday we were having a quiet afternoon so I decided to make chocolate apples, which are cheap and incredibly easy to make. So here is the recipe of how to make chocolate covered apples.
Note: Children require the help and supervision of an adult to make this recipe.
- Milk cholocate cake covering (I used a 300g packet).
Other items you require:
- Lollipop sticks or forks
- Baking paper
- Small Oven tray or large plate
- Small saucepan
- Large glass cooking bowl
- Wooden spoon
Note: A 300g packet of chocolate will cover six to eight apples!! I didn’t realise this, until the chocolate had melted. So if you are making 2-4 apples, use around 100-150g milk chocolate cake covering.
Step 1 – Wash and stab the apples
Remove the apple stalks and then wash and dry the apples. Then carefully insert your lollipop sticks or forks into the end of the apples where the stalks were.
Last weekend we had eaten too chocolate lollies whilst walking along the beach, so I kept then and washed them! Don’t ask me if that is hygienic or not, I don’t have a clue. Anyhow I had three apples and only two lollipop sticks, so I used a fork for the third apple.
Step 2 – Melt the chocolate
Get a large glass cooking bowl and then break up the chocolate into chunks and place inside of the bowl.
Be very careful with the next part, as you place the glass bowl onto a small saucepan, which contains boiled water from a kettle, but only enough so the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the glass bowl.
Next carefully place the saucepan on a hob and heat gently. You need to continuously stir the chocolate until it has all melted and then turn the heat off. This takes around 3-4 minutes.
Step 3 – Cover the apples in chocolate
You will now want to place each apple one at a time into the bowl and then spoon chocolate over them.
Then place the chocolate apples onto a small oven tray or large plate that has a layer of baking paper (the chocolate won’t stick to the baking paper).
Step 4 – Place in the fridge to set
The chocolate does cool pretty quickly, but best place in the fridge to set for a few hours.
A naughty chocolate treat that is easy to make.
