As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been planning to make these apples for weeks and finally today I’m going to show you How to Make White Chocolate Easter Apples.
Plus, they’re super easy – so much so that my kids made some right along with me! And even better – they’re very versatile – use white chocolate or dark or milk… and the possibilities are endless with sprinkles or colored sugar or nuts!!
I’d love it if you’d pin any of these images or share on Facebook! Thank you 🙂
So here’s what you’ll need:
- white chocolate (or a similar product like Candiquik or almond bark)
- candy apple sticks or craft sticks
- sprinkles (or nuts or colored sugar… whatever your heart desires!)
- microwave-safe bowl or small slow cooker to melt your chocolate
- silicone spatula
- wax paper
First up – you’ll need to melt the chocolate. I used white almond bark squares, broken up and put them in my really small slow cooker pot (the actual dish, separate from the slow cooker). I put it in the microwave for a minute, stirred it, then put it into the slow cooker to finish melting and keep it warm!
You could also just do this in a small bowl (minus the slow cooker) but I like the fact that the crock pot keeps the chocolate at a steady temperature and I don’t have to re-melt it when doing lots of apples.
Now, put your apples on sticks! Easy enough, huh?
Then dip them in the chocolate. I like to roll them around quite a bit and even used a spoon to spread it over the apple to be sure it’s well-coated.
After it’s well-coated, shake it or bump it on the edge of your bowl to shake off any excess chocolate.
Before the chocolate hardens, shake on your sprinkles. I like to do this over a coffee filter so that I can easily dump the extra sprinkles back into the shaker.
Then set them on wax paper to completely harden. You can speed up the drying by setting them in the refrigerator.
Then they’re ready to eat!
Wanna see some of the apples my kids made? They got creative for sure!
