Chocolate Dipped Apples

Another delightful confection to tickle your taste buds. Tart Granny Smith apples cut into thick slices and dipped in my special sugar free milk chocolate recipe then rolled in your favorite chopped nuts. This is a terrific little dessert, snack or even a great holiday gift for your favorite diabetic. Quick and easy to make you'll want to add these on your list of goodies for the holiday season. I hope you enjoy.

Chocolate Dipped Apples


2 ounces unsweetened bakers chocolate (2 squares), chopped
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup Splenda
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 1/2 cups Granny Smith apples, sliced thick (about 3 large apples making 8 slices each)
1 cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped fine (or your favorite nut)

Combine the chopped bakers chocolate, cocoa and Splenda in a medium sized bowl. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan until it begins to bubble. Pour over the chocolate mixture and whisk to combine. Make sure that everything has melted and has combined. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

Dip the apples into the chocolate about half way up and let the excess drip off. Roll all sides in the nuts to coat and place on a large wax paper lined dish in a single layer. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until chocolate firms.
