Chocolate Covered Apple Pops

 

 

These Apple Pops turned out great! My kids really liked them; the perfect Halloween treat to send to their school parties. The process was quite simple; slice apples, dip in chocolate, sprinkle on orange zest :)   I went ahead and took some step by step photos for you…this isn’t so much a recipe, but a how to…If you are interested in doing full sized dipped apples check out my other recipe for Gourment *Caramel* Chocolate Apples

This post is going to be short and sweet. My computer broke last week and I am using my husband’s and it just isn’t the same. I have no photo editing abilities :(   I did just get the shipping notification that my new laptop is on the way! YEAH!

 

First, slice your apples using a knife…making sure it is thick enough so that the skewer doesn’t poke through. I found the skewer worked best compared to the typical lollipop or apple sticks. I was able to get 2 slices per side of the apple, so 4 slices/apple

There is potential for a lot of waste when making these apple pops because there is so much left over on either side of the apple. I cut each side off and tossed it into a bowl with orange juice (just like lemon juice; orange juice or better yet apple juice will keep your apples from turning brown and yet NOT make them sour)

 

Zest an orange (use the juice for the left over apples)

Dip the apples in the warm melted chocolate and gently tap the skewer on the side of your bowl to knock off the excess chocolate

  

Sprinkly on some orange zest and set in the fridge to chill until completely hardened (at least 1 hour)

  1. What a cute and healthy idea! :-)

  2. I came here through the Wellness Weekend, and I love this idea! Thank you for sharing it. I used to love apples and peanut butter, but I recently discovered I’m sensitive to peanuts. Chocolate and apples sounds like a fantastic replacement! =]

    • Thank you!I have linked in the post another recipe of mine using the whole apple, and I make a *caramel* layer with sunflower seed butter, it is yummy too!

  3. love this idea. Not to put a damper on this awesome pop, but does the chocolate crack off at all when the apple is bitten?

    • Hmmm, I don’t remember it cracking off the apple at all…but I did eat them when they have been out of the fridge for a while. Did it crack for you?
