Chocolate Dipped Apples with Caramel Drizzle

Chocolate dipped strawberries meet caramel apple in these delicious chocolate dipped apples with caramel drizzle!

As much as I love apples and love caramel (it’s so close to “Carmel” … how could I not?!), I’ve actually never loved caramel apples. I’m not quite sure why. What I do know, is that my summertime chocolate dipped watermelon is one of my favorite recipes to date so when Halloween came rolling around, I knew I’d have to recreate a harvest chocolate dipped treat. And so, I thought, why not put a twist on everyone’s favorite Halloween apples (caramel apples) but bring in a bit of that chocolate dipping that I’ve learned you all love?


(Serves 4– the number of slices will depend on how big you cut your apples)

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I prefer dark or semisweet chocolate)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (optional – see notes)
  • 2 apples, sliced 
  • 10 soft caramel candies
  • 1/2 tbs water 


  1. Melt coconut oil and chocolate chips over low on the stove, stirring constantly so they don’t burn. Then, using the back of a wooden spoon, brush chocolate over all sides of the apple slices.
  2. Lay on a parchment or aluminum foil lined baking sheet and put in the fridge to harden for 30 min. 
  3. With 10 min left, add caramel and water to a small pan. Melt together over medium. Let it sit for a minute to start to harden. Then, using a spoon, drizzle caramel on chocolate apples. Put back in fridge for 30 min. 


The coconut oil is optional but helps to create a shell of the chocolate.

What if I want a healthy dessert but not this one? Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered below:
