When you think of chocolate covered fruit, what do you think of? Strawberries? Me, too. Chocolate covered apples sure don't get enough time in the limelight as one of the best fruits to pair with chocolate. Especially with a hint of lemon, these treats are the perfect indulgence that still feel like a healthy treat!
Did you know that Enjoy Life Mini Chips are dairy-free, nut-free + soy-free? It's hard to find dairy free chocolate. And, even harder to find soy-free chocolate! This chocolate is also Non-GMO. Actually, the entire line of Enjoy Life Foods is Non-GMO!
This treat can be enjoyed as a finger food. Or, you can use wooden or red + white plastic tooth picks to make little apple heart pops. Either way, these tasty treats go fast!
This treat is so simple to make because this chocolate melts perfectly in the microwave. No baking or combining ingredients required. Top with your favorite, creative toppings + enjoy for a family Valentine's Day party!
Valentine's Day Chocolate Covered Apples with Enjoy Life
1 Small Watermelon
Sugars + Sprinkles of your choice
Mini heart-shaped cookie cutters
Optional: Plastic red + white tooth picks
Wash + dry 2-5 apples. Cut into thin slices working from the outside, in. Cutting from four sides, like a cube. Wash + cut the lemon into slices. Squeeze the lemon juice into a medium bowl. Place the apple slices in the bowl of lemon juice, stir to coat all of the apple slices. The lemon juice helps to keep the apples from browning!
Place the apple slices flat on a cutting board. Press heart shaped mini-cookie cutters into the apples. Snack on the excess apple pieces! I wont tell! Place the heart cut-outs flat onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Wash the mini watermelon. Cut in 1/2. Then, cut into slices. place the watermelon slices flat on a cutting board + cut into heart shapes. Place the heart cut-outs flat onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Pour 1/2 a bag of Enjoy Life Mini Chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 30 second increments + stir. Continue to heat + stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
With a spoon or butter knife, drizzle chocolate onto the apple + watermelon hearts. Top with your favorite sprinkles + sugars.
