This recipe will take you only minutes to prepare, but you’ll want to move kind of quickly. First, begin to melt your chocolate in a saucepan and mix in some milk (up to 1/2 cup) to encourage the melting and creaminess. While your chocolate is melting, wash your apples, remove the stems and push your popsicle sticks into the top of the apple (where you just pulled the stems from.)
Once your chocolate is melted, dip each apple (using the stick as your handle) into the chocolate and coat as much as you can. Place on wax paper to cool and immediately cover your apple in sprinkles. You want to do this before your chocolate begins to set. Do the same with your second apple. You should have enough chocolate left for an additional apple or two, particularly if you are using smaller apples. Place your chocolate covered candy apples in the refrigerator (still on the wax paper) to set for about 15 minutes or until you’re ready to enjoy them.
This is another recipe that a child can help you with, so include them in the fun! These chocolate covered candy apples are sure to be their new favorite!
