Hip Tips: 

  • Be sure to soak up excess juice using a paper towel from apples, or the chocolate WILL NOT stick to wet apples. If the chocolate becomes clumpy, try re-melting for a few seconds and stirring again. You want a thin shiny consistency for best results.

  • Use cake pop sticks to make your apple slices easy to hold and eat! It also makes it easier to dip.

  • I really liked the chocolate melting wafers. if you decide to substitute chocolate chips it helps to add a little coconut or vegetable oil when melting to get a smooth consistency.

  • If you prefer no apple core at all, just cut out core first and do normal apples slices. The result would be a different shape than mine, but big enough to still fit a candy stick inside.

    Yeah this doesnt work so well…it all slips off within 20 minutes even making sure to get as much wetness (juice) off as you can. If you plan to eat them right away they would POSSIBLY work but if you are using them at a party or anything I would skip it

    • Adrian

      I agree. I have never personally made these but have been witness at parties to everything sliding off the apple. It would be easier/safer to just make regular caramel apples for a party. This would make a good, quick, once in a while afternoon snack for yourself or for kids too.

        I’ve successfully dipped apples. And pineapple… Idk what you ladies tried to use but Milk chocolate will never cut it. Higher cocoa content works better, ghiardelli chips are the best… and try not to dip while chocolate is super hot. I would gently squeeze each piece between paper towels just before covering. Also helps to have a clean dry paint brush in hand to help coat little problem spots. Hope you have better luck if you try again!

        • Cyndikay

          Thank you same, I was getting discouraged about trying this recipe, now I feel more confident with your helpful tips…💕😊

    I was so excited to make these for my kids classroom parties. This was a complete fail. The chocolate does not stay on the aliced apple, even after drying the apple slice. Short of drying them in the oven, or a blow dried lol, there is no way to completely dry the slices, making it impossible for the chocolate to dry, or stick to the apple. I’m so disappointed, it looked so good.

  7. Crystal

    Hi there great recipe but I’m wondering do you have any ideas as to what I can do to prevent everything from sliding off. I’m wonting to make these for my boys classroom Halloween party. If you have any good advice can you please share with me:)

  8. Tiny

    I was able to get chocolate to stick but they were soft and kind of slimy the next day. I recommend “drying out” the apples in a love temp oven or dehydrator if you don’t plan to eat right away

  9. Mommaof8

    This will ALWAYS end up being a hot mess if not eaten right away. Spare yourself the headache and heartache. Buy a bag of small green apples and use them whole.

    I’ve never had a problem with Carmel or chocolate not sticking or running off. I guess just lucky! Maybe apples at room temp. To start.
