Ready for some Halloween fun?   

Get those cauldrons a-bubbling, and whip up a spook-a-licious treat for your ghostly guests.   

Our weekend recipe is a Halloween classic. Apples dazzle with swirls of chocolate and decorative nuts, coconut and/or sprinkles.   

All of the ingredients should be available at your local natural and organic food store.   

Chocolate-Dipped Halloween Apples

  • 6 medium apples 
  • Cookie sticks (8-inch) 
  • 1 lb. chocolate (semi-sweet and white), cut into chunks
  • Sprinkles, chopped nuts, coconut (as desired) 
  1. Line cookie sheet or pan with parchment paper. 
  2. Wash and completely dry apples; insert cookie sticks into tops of apples. 
  3. In 2 medium microwave-safe bowls, melt chocolates separately for about 2 minutes. Stir halfway through to facilitate melting. Stir again after chocolate is melted to ensure consistency is smooth. 
  4. Place sprinkles, nuts and/or coconut in separate bowls. Dip apples into the different melted chocolates to create swirls and then immediately into sprinkles, nuts and/or coconut. Place on prepared pans, sticks up. Chill until firm.
