Halloween Mini Chocolate Covered Apples are the perfect way to celebrate the holiday in style! These delicious treats are perfect for a Halloween party or simply as a sweet snack. For more spooky treats see my Halloween page.
These mini chocolate covered apples are so simple to make all you need is a melon baller, some Granny Smith apples, chocolate chips, nuts, and/or sprinkles and you got one yummy treat for your next Halloween party or fall get together.
When it comes to desserts, nothing is quite as satisfying as a piece of chocolate-covered fruit. This is especially true if the fruit is sweet and juicy, like a perfect apple.
With a little bit of creativity, you can easily turn any ordinary apple into a chocolatey masterpiece. All you need is a melon baller and some melted chocolate.
Of course, instead of using a melon baller, you can just cut the apple with an apple slicer, add a candy stick and dip them in the chocolate and add sprinkles! Super easy!
I made Candy Coated Chocolate and Caramel Apples a couple of years ago, but just the thought of bite-sized ones got me all excited!
Make Sliced Covered Apples
If using a melon baller is too difficult or if you just do not have one. Another awesome way to make these is to cut the apples in slices with an apple slicer or cut 1/2 inch thick slices straight through the apple.
Add a cake pop stick and dip them in chocolate and add the toppings!
Toppings for Covered Apples
- Crushed candy
- Crushed Cookies, like Oreos
- Drizzles of more chocolate
- Traditional red candy apple coating
How to Make Mini Chocolate Covered Apples with a Melon Baller
- 4 Granny Smith apples, Honey Crisp, or another fav apple
- 1 bag of chocolate chips, my fav is Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate
- Halloween sprinkle toppings or nuts
- Cake pop sticks, or skewers
Start by scooping out all the balls in your apples with a melon baller.
They end up looking semi-round with a flat apple skin bottom. If you do not like this idea just cut them into slices.
I used decorative paper straws cut in half for my sticks and they were a bit flimsy. You can use candy sticks and even skewers for the pop part!
MAKE AHEAD: Place them in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
FREEZER: Wrap in plastic or parchment and place in an airtight container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.
