  • 6 to 8 medium apples
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil refined or unrefined
  • 10 ounce chocolate chips We use Enjoy Life brand


  • chopped nuts
  • chocolate chips
  • sea salt
  • sprinkles
  • shredded coconut


  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. The apples will take a while to set and they won't stick to the paper. 
  • Wash and completely dry the apples and insert sticks into the center at the core. SEE NOTE
  • In a double boiler (SEE NOTE), heat the chocolate and coconut oil over medium heat. Stir constantly until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Approximately 10 minutes. 
  • Carefully dip the apples in the chocolate and then dip in the nuts or whatever topping you choose. (SEE NOTE)
  • Place the dipped apples on the parchment paper and let set for at least one hour or 30 minutes in the refrigerator.


The Nutrition Facts are an estimate only.
Make sure the apples are completely dry so the chocolate sticks to them.
If you don't have a double boiler, you can put a heat resistant bowl in a sauce pan that's half filled with water.
