Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Chocolate Covered Apples. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Use a dairy free/ vegan chocolate to keep this recipe vegan, otherwise you can use any type of milk, dark or even white chocolate.

I added in a touch of almond butter which allows the chocolate to be chewy and not rock hard. You can use any type of nut or seed butter such as cashew butter, peanut butter, oat butter or sunflower seed butter.

Feel free to use any apple that you’d like. I prefer honey crispy because i love their sweet taste and crunchy texture. But you can use a green apple as well.

For a caramel like taste and chewy texture, I added in a piece of a medjool date.

Finish these bites off with a crunchy walnut or any other type of nut or seed. Alternatively, you can use coconut, sprinkles, etc!

FOUR: Finish these bites off with more melted chocolate and a walnut on top. Pop them in the freezer for 30-45 minutes or until totally firm. Remove from the silicon mold and enjoy!

Tips And Tricks

Use a high quality chocolate chip for best results, I really like Hu Kitchen.

Feel free to use your favorite type of apple, I like honey crisp but a green apple will work as well!

If you don’t want to use the silicon molds, feel free to use mini cup cake liners or just place them on a baking sheet.

How To Serve And Store

Serve these Chocolate Covered Apples once the chocolate is firm enough to handle.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge or the freezer and enjoy up to 30 days.

Taste And Texture

These Chocolate Covered Apples have a chewy chocolate outer shell. If frozen, these are a bit firm but delicious once you bite into. They taste like a chocolate covered apples but with a chewy texture from the dates.
