Description

These healthy treats can be easily whipped up when a candy craving hits.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cups Lemon Juice Or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 whole Medium Apples, Washed (I Used Granny Smith Because I Like Their Tart Flavor)
  • 3 ounces, weight Good Quality Dark Chocolate, Chopped (I Used 72% Cacao)
  • 2 Tablespoons Toasted Walnuts

Preparation

1. Add the lemon juice or vinegar to a medium-sized bowl and fill the bowl 2/3 full with cold water. Set aside for now.
2. Core and quarter the apples. Cut each quarter into 2 wedges so you end up with 8 wedges from each apple. Transfer the apple wedges to the lemon juice/water mixture to soak while you melt the chocolate and prepare the walnuts.
3. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in the microwave until smooth. If you heat it in the microwave, heat for 30 seconds at a time, and stir between. Continue for 30 second bursts as needed until smooth. Finely chop the walnuts and place them in a small dish.
4. Line a baking tray with wax paper and have it ready to place the apple wedges on.
5. Drain the apple wedges and pat them dry with paper towels. Working with 1 apple wedge at a time, dip it in the chocolate (or drizzle the chocolate on top) and then sprinkle on some walnut.
6. Place the wedge onto the prepared tray. Continue this way until all the apple wedges are coated.
6. Transfer the tray to the fridge so the chocolate can harden. Then you are ready to serve.
7. I like to serve these within a couple hours of making them to help keep the apples from oxidizing.
