recipe from AZCentral.com
Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Apples
Start to finish: 30 minutes (10 minutes active)
3 ounces heavy cream
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate bits
4 apples (any variety)
4 wooden pop sticks
Chopped salted peanuts (optional)
Chopped milk chocolate (optional)
In a small saucepan over medium-low, heat the cream and peanut butter until bubbling. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate bits. Stir until completely smooth. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, from the bottom push a pop stick up into the core of each apple. The stick should go deep enough to be sturdy, but leave enough exposed to serve as a handle.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place the peanuts and/or milk chocolate in bowls, if using.
One at a time, using the sticks handles, dip the apples in the chocolate mixture. Use a spoon to scoop up extra chocolate and pour over the apples to help coat the sides. Allow the extra chocolate to drip back into the pan. Dip the coated apples into the nuts and milk chocolate, if desired.
Stand the apples, stick in the air, on the lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm.
