    There's no substitute for toffee apples, but try this chocolaty version if you want to mix things up a bit. This is a great Halloween recipe to make with children.

    1. Insert the wooden sticks into the cores of the apples at the stem. Place the roasted peanuts and Smarties on separate plates. Set aside.
    2. Place the chocolate into a metal or glass bowl and set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until melted. Remove from the heat. Dip apples into the melted chocolate, turning to coat completely. Dip or roll in the Smarties and nuts, then place on a sheet of greaseproof paper. Repeat with remaining apples. Allow apples to set at room temperature until the chocolate is firm, about 20 minutes, before serving.

    Excellent! I used Honey Crisp apples and semisweet chocolate. Sprinkled with sundae nuts and some fall leaf sprinks. I had NO trouble with the chocolate not sticking - in fact, it stuck pretty thickly. Yum. Thanks for the recipe!!  -  24 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I chose to make smore's chocolate apples, I first dipped in chocolate (used ghiradelli semisweet bars), let cool a bit at room temp (the toppings will drip off if you don't cool the chocolate first I waited till the chocolate started to get a little shiny), then sprinkled with mini semisweet chips, rolled in crushed graham crackers, stuck on mini marshmallows by hand =P then after cooling in fridge on parchment until chocolate hardens, I melted some white chocolate and drizzled them. Put back in fridge till set. Quarter them for easier eating.  -  25 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    SO easy and the apples came out looking "professional." I used a 24 ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I had enough to make 13 small-ish apples. Of course, after you roll the apples in various toppings, the apples look HUGE! :o) I made a variety- macadamia, pecan, coconut, heath, and plain. No problems at all with the toppings sticking. I did have to let them sit overnight to harden before wrapping them up. These will be perfect for the fundraiser we are doing. Thanks!  -  22 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
