chocolate covered apples

What do you do when your kid is all kinds of in your face and you don't feel great? Let the kid help you make dessert. Then find out your husband has ordered pizza for dinner. I'm pretty sure it will help you feel better.
Gather the supplies: chocolate chips, glass bowl, washed and de-stemmed apples, other fixin's.

Stab your apples.

Bring water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Set the bowl on top of the pot. Stir chips until melted, then coat your apple.

Call in your kid and let them shake the crap out of a sprinkles container. It will make them happy. Yes, this picture is out of order.

The best way I found to coat them was to twist and smooth the chocolate on. It sounds sexy and looks pretty.

Add your choice of fixins. Chill in the fridge until you want to eat them, at least 30 minutes.
Die of sugar shock.

Have a great weekend!
