Chocolate Covered Apple Wedges

You had me at chocolate covered ________.

Yes, I’m the one with the salty tooth, but sometimes a gal just needs her chocolate and red wine. I’ve never made a pie before, so I needed something to do with apples this fall that didn’t involve some complicated baking recipe.

Did you know that dark chocolate is actually good for you? That means I must have a lot of dark chocolate to lower my blood pressure. (Pretend I actually know what my blood pressure reading is.)

These chocolate covered apple wedges are just what the doctor ordered!

This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light.

Serving size: 2 wedges. Recipe makes 16 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain granola
  • 2 large apples

Directions:

Slice each apple into 16 wedges.

Microwave chocolate in a bowl  for 1 to 2 minutes until the chocolate melts. Make sure to stir every 15 seconds.

Dip apple wedges into melted chocolate, skin side up. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl.

Pour granola on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Dip the chocolate covered wedges into the granola.

Refrigerate finished wedges for at least five minutes before serving. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve them.

Thanks as always to Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!

  1. That’s so funny because I always say that chocolate and apple are the two ingredients that are rarely (if ever) paired in desserts. I thought that it would be disgusting… I guess I have been proven wrong! 🙂 These look delicious!

Tell me all the things.
