Apple, Halloween, trick or treat
4Appleswashed & dried
Push a lolly stick into each apple.
Melt the dark chocolate in a small bowl over a small pan of barely simmering water. (Turn off heat once melted).
Holding the stick roll 1 of the apples in the chocolate (you may need to tilt the bowl for full coverage) then place on baking parchment to set.
Repeat with a second apple.
Then melt the while chocolate in the same way as the dark and coat 2 more apples and then place all the coated apples in the fridge for 10 minutes to fully set.
Once the chocolate has set put the white chocolate back over the heat to melt and place half of it in a small piping bag with a tiny nozzle or one fashioned out of baking paper with the end sniped off.
Decorate a dark chocolate apple with a web pattern by starting with a series of downward stripes and then proceed to join those stripes with a small curve.
Repeat procedure for the next dark chocolate apple.
Then melt the remaining dark chocolate and repeat the above procedure for the white chocolate apples.
Allow to set and then wrap in cellophane or roasting bags and tie with a ribbon or string!
To make a piping bag out of baking paper, tear off a square, fold in 2, then form a cone shape (more folding makes it easier), folding the top over and snip off a small hole at the end.
