If you are in search of something easy to make with the children, chocolate apples are a great choice. I find forks make the decorating and eating of the apples a lot easier than the traditional lollipop sticks. Pop the apples into the fridge the night before decorating them. The cooled apples allow the chocolate to stick to it with more ease.

Chocolate Apples

4 apples, rinsed and dried 4 forks 200g milk chocolate 50g white chocolate Toppings: sugar sprinkles


  1. Refrigerate the apples for several hours or overnight.
  2. Dry any condensation from the apples with some kitchen paper. Insert a fork into each apple. Place some greaseproof paper on a plate. 
  3. In a heat-proof bowl over some simmering water melt the milk chocolate.
  4. Let the chocolate cool slightly for 2 minutes. Dip each apple into the milk chocolate, covering each apple completely. Allow excess to drain. Place on the greaseproof paper and leave to set, which will only take a few minutes.
  5. In a clean bowl, over some simmering water, melt the white chocolate.
  6. Once the chocolate on the apples has set, drizzle over the white chocolate.
  7. Sprinkle with toppings of your choice. Place the apples back on the paper and leave in a cool place until the chocolate hardens.
