Did you know that when you pair apples with dark chocolate you create a heart-healthy snack that is rich in antioxidants? Here is a tasty twist on the traditional version of candied and caramel apples that is actually heart (and tooth!) friendly!
1 cup dark-chocolate baking discs or chips
Remove the apple stems and insert the sticks into the top of the apples. Melt the dark chocolate baking discs or chips in a double boiler (or just insert metal bowl into a pot of boiling water). When the chocolate has melted, slowly rotate each apple until all sides are covered in chocolate. Place on a tray lined with parchment or wax paper and set in the refrigerator to cool.
*Once cool, serve and enjoy!
