Caramel apples are an old-school favorite, whether it is at country fairs, special occasions as gifts or children's birthday parties. Put a modern twist on the traditional treat and trade caramel for chocolate. And if you use sweet, large apples like Fujis, your chocolate-covered apples have dozens of different flavors you can add on, from chopped nuts to coconut to candy bits.
Place waxed paper on a cookie sheet as lining. Grease the paper with butter or non-stick spray.
Cut off the Fuji apple stems. Insert a wooden stick into the bottom of each Fuji apple halfway up.
Melt the chocolate in a slow cooker on low to medium heat. For several apples, you can melt all the chocolate at once.
Dip each apple carefully into the chocolate mixture while holding onto the stick. Coat the apple as evenly as possible, from the top to the bottom.
Hold the apple up slightly after coating, allowing chocolate to drip off as necessary. Let the chocolate set for about one minute, then repeat the dipping procedure. Set the apple down on the wax paper with the stick pointing up.
Repeat this procedure with all of the Fuji apples. Let them dry on the wax paper for at least a half hour before touching.
