I love love LOVE after school snacks! They are often simple to prep, easy to eat, and something that everyone in the family will love.
This recipe contains three of my favorite things: Apples, Granola, and Chocolate – the latter being the obvious favorite! If I could incorporate chocolate into every dish I prepared, I think I would do it.
You actually don’t use a lot of chocolate in this recipe – just a drop. Its a great way to make an ordinary apple feel like an indulgent treat.
Meal on the Plate: Chocolate and Granola Covered Apples
2 ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate, broken into small pieces
1/4 cup Granola, plain
1 of your absolute favorite apples (we used Gala apples for ours)
1. Take your favorite apple and cut it into 16 wedges. Set aside.
2. Place your chocolate pieces into a microwave-safe dish and place in the microwave. Heat the chocolate for 1 minute and be sure to stir it every 15 seconds or until the chocolate melts.
2. Once the chocolate has melted, remove it from the microwave. Take your apple wedges and dip them into the chocolate.
3. Sprinkle each wedge with granola.
4. Serve and enjoy!
