Chocolate Peanut Butter Coated Apples
  • Servings: 12
  • 12 wooden ice cream sticks
  • 12 medium apples, stems removed
  • 1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • Optional for decorating apples:
  • chopped peanut butter chips
  • chopped or mini chocolate chips
  • chopped vanilla chips
  • flaked coconut
  • colored spinkles
  • chopped nuts
  1. Insert wooden stick into each washed and dried apple. Cover a baking sheet or tray with waxed paper.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, stir together peanut butter chips and oil. Microwave on high 1-1/2 minutes or until chips are softened. Stir until melted.
  3. Stir together confectioners' sugar and cocoa; gradually add to melted chip mixture, stirring until smooth. Microwave on high 1 minute or until very warm.
  4. Dip apples into mixture, twirling to remove excess coating. (If coating becomes too thick, return to microwave for a few seconds). Roll coated apple in chopped chips or coconut if desired, or sprinkle toppings onto apples. Allow to cool on prepared baking sheet or tray.
