I used both chocolate and vanilla flavored bark coating from the baking aisle in the grocery store. Follow the directions on the back of the package for melting.
I inserted a ‘food-safe’ twig in the apple prior to dipping but you could use a craft stick or dowel.
Since I didn’t have access to an apple tree, after much googling, I determined that our River Birch trees are considered ‘food-safe’.
There is a bit of a trick to making these treats~
you need to let the chocolate set up a bit,
before using the sprinkles, but it once the coating begins
to harden, it happens quickly.
Dip your apples into the chocolate coating and let the excess chocolate drip off your apple and back into your cauldron. . .
Set your dipped apples onto wax paper and spoon the sprinkles onto the apples while the chocolate is setting up (rolling the apples in the sprinkles rather than sprinkling them on makes a scary mess ).
I mixed part of vanilla with the chocolate together in a separate bowl to swirl together and coat a few of the apples.
The candy bone sprinkles took more time, placing them right before the chocolate was set, otherwise they slide down the chocolate coating in an avalanche for a bone chilling effect. . .
