Chocolate Covered Apple Slices

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 12


  • 4 apples sliced about ¼” thick (Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Fuji, etc)
  • 12 oz dark chocolate melted
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil optional
  • Topping ideas: caramel chopped nuts, seeds, sprinkles, coconut, crushed cookies, mini chocolate chips, flaky salt, dried fruit, candy, graham cracker crumbs, mini marshmallows, etc.


  • Wash and thoroughly dry the apples. Slice them into thin-ish (¼”) slices and remove any seeds or stems. Insert popsicle sticks through the bottom. If the slices are too thin, do a test trial before slicing all your apples to avoid breakage.
  • Put chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) in a heat-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well between each, until completely melted. Optionally, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to thin it out for easier dipping.
  • Dip each apple slice in chocolate, using a spoon to coat the entire slice. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, then transfer to a parchment paper-lined tray.
  • Add dry toppings like nuts, cookies, sprinkles, chocolate chips, or coconut right away. Refrigerate or freeze until solid. For toppings like caramel or peanut butter, let the chocolate harden first before adding. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.


  • If you prefer less chocolate, drizzle the slices instead of dipping. Keep in mind that these won’t last as long in the refrigerator since they’re not completely encased in chocolate.
  • You can use flat popsicle sticks or paper lollipop sticks for this recipe (like we did here). Enjoy your spooky and delicious Halloweek treats! 🎃🍏🍫
