The great thing about making this snack is that you can change the type of apples to change the flavor.

That makes it unique and delicious!

Tips for Slicing Apples

Before you dip the apple slices into chocolate, be sure that you clean and dry the apples off really well.

You can then change the thickness of the apple slices to help have a good crunch.

It’s also important to remember to not slice the apples too early as well. The apple slices will turn brown due to the oxygen. (you can always drizzle some lemon juice over them if you want to not have them turn brown.

If you want tart, you can use Granny Smith apples. Or for a sweeter apple, use Honey Crisp apples or even Red Delicious.

If you’re one to change recipes, there is an easy way to use different types of apples.

The fun thing is that you can mix and match the type of apples, and even mix and match the type of chocolate used. Melting dark chocolate, semi-sweet, or even white chocolate would be super fun for this snack.
