Chocolate Apples

This autumn why not try your hand at chocolate apples rather than the traditional toffee apple treats? Use a sweet apple such as Pink Lady or Gala for maximum flavour and always supervise children if they are helping you to cook. You should also leave the chocolate covered apples to cool before placing in the fridge to set.

Chocolate Apples


  • 450g/16 1/2oz chocolate, broken up 
  • 6 sweet apples (e.g. Pink Lady or Gala)

Serves 6 


  1. Melt the chocolate by placing it in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, ensuring the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water
  2. Remove the stalk, wash the apples and dry
  3. Take six ice lolly sticks and push one into the top of each apple to use as a handle
  4. When the chocolate has melted hold the apples by the handles and dip them into it, turning to coat the whole apple
  5. Once completely covered, place them onto a tray lined with wax paper and keep them in the fridge until the chocolate has set
