Pink Lady chocolate apples

These are very simple and very pretty, making them perfect for bonfire night or winter parties. Children will love helping to drizzle chocolate on the apples (and licking the bowl afterwards!)


100g chocolate, finely chopped (use milk, plain or white - or a mixture)
6 Pink Lady apples
6 long lolly sticks (available at kitchen shops, online & some supermarkets)


Add a few centimetres of water to a small saucepan and set on the hob over a medium heat and bring up to the boil.

Put the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl, using separate bowls for different colours of chocolate - a sturdy pyrex one is ideal. Once the water in the pan is boiling, set the bowl on top ensuring the base doesn’t actually touch the water. Turn off the heat and allow the chocolate to melt gently, stirring as it does so. If the chocolate has been finely chopped this should only take a minute or so.

Pierce the centre of each apple, just next to the stalk, and insert a lolly stick in deep so that it feels firmly embedded. Line a baking sheet with a piece of greaseproof paper and spread the apples out on it.

Use a teaspoon to drizzle thin trails of chocolate around each apple, using the lolly stick to twirl the apple to get an evening coating all over. Set back on the tray and repeat with the other apples. Set aside somewhere cool to set.
