Introduction: Chocolate Covered Apple Bites

So yummy and super easy to make! 

Step 1: You'll Need:

To prepare these little balls of yummy goodness you'll need -


Two Granny Smith Apples (or any type of apple you like)
One cup of chocolate chips
Shortening
Some sprinkles

If you have candy melts, you can use those in place of the chocolate chips and shortening. 

And:

A Melon Baller
Toothpicks
Bowl for melting the chocolate
Parchment paper

Step 2: Melt the Chocolate

Pour one cup of chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl & add one tablespoon of shortening. Microwave at 50% heat for 30 seconds. Take it out and mix it. Put it back in for another 10 seconds, and take it out and mix again. Repeat this process until the chocolate has a smooth texture after mixing. 

The chocolate chips and shortening can also be melted using a double broiler.

Step 3: Prepare the Apple for Dipping

Grab your melon baller and make some apple balls.
When you have finished, stick a toothpick into each one.

Step 4: Dip the Apples

Lay out a piece a parchment paper

Grab an apple piece and dip it into the chocolate. 

Let the excess chocolate drip off and set the apple on the parchment paper.

Repeat until they have all been dipped.

Step 5: Decorate

While the chocolate covered apples are still slightly wet you can decorate them with sprinkles or whatever you would like.

Or, you could leave them just the way they are.


Step 6: Enjoy!

It only takes about ten minutes for the chocolate to dry - then they are ready to serve and eat.
