Bridal Shower Favors: Chocolate Covered Apples

Ladies and gents, I have found THEE guest favors for my cousin’s upcoming wedding shower – chocolate covered apples! My plan is to put a bride or groom apple into a cute little gift bag (more on that later!) for the guests to carry out with them as they say good bye to the happy couple. But, back to the apples.

And look at the happy couple! Aren’t these just FABULOUS?!?!? Oh my, I’m in love! Now I just need to do my best to channel Julia Childs and Martha Stewart to make these babies happen. 

For the bridal apple, I’m going to mimic the bride-to-be’s dress. She’s doing a champagne dress with a brown sash. And for the groom, I’m going to stay true to the brown color of the chocolate as that is the color tux he’ll be wearing. Got to LOVE fall weddings!

This will be my first time – ever – trying out this recipe from The only chocolate dipping, to date, that I’ve managed is chocolate fondue! I think I’m going to use cute little cupcake liners to hold each of the chocolate-dipped apple.

Wish me luck!!! And of course, I’ll be sure to let you know how these turn out! In the mean time, go on and use the recipe to try making chocolate covered apples for your next get-together. Be sure to let us know how it goes!

Prep Time: 45 minutes      Total Time: 55 minutes


  1. Two apples – one as the bride, one as the groom. You’ll want to go with medium-sized, sweet-tart apples such as Braeburn, Gala or Figi.
  2. Two wooden sticks
  3. One 12-ounce bag of white chocolate chips
  4. One 12-ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Wash apples and let dry thoroughly. Decide on the “front” of each apple and which apple will be the bride and which will be the groom. Insert wooden sticks into apples for handles.
  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  3. In a medium sized, microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate on medium power for two minutes. Stir and return to microwave for one minute at a time. Check every minute and stir until melted.
  4. Dip one apple entirely into white chocolate. Several thin coats are best. Let dry on wax paper.
  5. Dip the front of the second apple into the white chocolate. This will make the shirt front of the tuxedo for the groom. Let dry on wax paper.
  6. Melt the semi sweet chocolate chips using the above instructions. Dip the groom apple leaving a / pattern of the white chocolate showing on the front side. Several thin layers of the darker chocolate are best. Let dry on wax paper.
  7. Remelt the white chocolate. Hold the bride apple at a 90 degree angle over the wax paper. Slowly drizzle on the white chocolate while spinning the apple. When you are satisfied with the drizzle pattern let dry.
  8. Use a wooden skewer or toothpick to place three dots of semisweet chocolate on the white shirt of the groom apple. These are the buttons of the tuxedo shirt. Let dry.
  9. To finish each apple:.
    1. Bride: Loosely run a gathering stitch along 1/3 of the tulle circle. Tie off. Glue to the top of the handle for the veil. Tie the white ribbon into a bow. Glue in place. Trim ends if desired. Small silk flowers, etc can be added to the veil if desired.
    2. Groom: Tie a bow around the handle right above the shirt front. This makes the bow tie for the tuxedo.
