Chocolate Peanut Butter Coated Apples
February 12th, 2013 posted by Stephanie Moon
A new, delicious twist on the traditional caramel apple! These are ideal for fall when you have an overabundance of apples, but don’t discount them for other holidays and occassions! Simply change the color of the sprinkles or other decorations to fit the season or event.
For children with allergies to peanuts, replace the peanut butter chips with butterscotch or mint for a different twist!
You will need 12 wooden ice cream sticks 12 medium apples, stems removed 1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar 2/3 cup cocoa
Optional for decorating apples:
chopped peanut butter chips chopped or mini chocolate chips chopped vanilla chips flaked coconut colored spinkles chopped nuts
What you do
Insert wooden stick into each washed and dried apple. Cover a baking sheet or tray with waxed paper. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, stir together peanut butter chips and oil. Microwave on high 1-1/2 minutes or until chips are softened. Stir until melted. Stir together confectioners’ sugar and cocoa; gradually add to melted chip mixture, stirring until smooth. Microwave on high 1 minute or until very warm. Dip apples into mixture, twirling to remove excess coating. (If coating becomes too thick, return to microwave for a few seconds). Roll coated apple in chopped chips or coconut if desired, or sprinkle toppings onto apples. Allow to cool on prepared baking sheet or tray.
