This dark chocolate candied apple with almonds is a wonderful holiday time dessert or a great gift idea for friends and family. They are very easy to make, and yet will be something your friends or family will be impressed with the beauty of them.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups slivered almonds
  • Apples
  • Skewers

Directions

  1. Cut a small hole in the bottom of each apple with a paring knife, slightly smaller in diameter than the skewers for a tight fight. Push the skewers securely into the apples.
  2. Place the chocolate in a heat proof bowl and arrange the almonds on a large plate. Heat the chocolate over a double boiler, whisking it smooth. 
  3. Dip the apples into the chocolate and then roll each one in the almonds. Place the apples on a wax-paper covered tray and refrigerate for two to three hours to set.
