Apple Spider Web Pops

From The Food Network Kitchen: Fresh fruit awaits you in these chocolate-dipped webbed treats. Thick slices of tart apple stand in for candy. Wrap them in cellophane bags, tie them with a decorative bow and feel semi-wholesome about passing them out.

Apple Spider Web Pops

INGREDIENTS For Apple Spider Web Pops

2 large Granny Smith apples, stemmed4 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate2 teaspoons coconut oil4 ounces chopped white chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS

 Special Equipment: 8 wooden ice-pop sticks and a toothpick

Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicon baking mat.Cut the apples lengthwise (stem to bottom) into 4 thick slices each. Remove any visible seeds and keep the core intact. The end slices will be rounded; cut a thin slice off so they lay flat. Poke a small hole in the bottom of each slice with a wooden ice-pop stick and push halfway into the apple. Combine the bittersweet chocolate and 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 50 percent power for 30-second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Add the white chocolate and remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil to another medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 50 percent power for 30-second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.Dip half of the apple slices completely in the bittersweet chocolate, letting the excess drip back into the bowl, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Dip the remaining apple slices in the white chocolate. Let sit at room temperature so the chocolate thickens a bit, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the leftover dark and white chocolate to 2 separate small resealable plastic bags and snip a small corner off each bag. Pipe 3 to 4 dark chocolate concentric circles on the white chocolate-dipped apples and visa-versa. Drag a toothpick through the circles, starting the center and working your way out to create a spider web design. Refrigerate until hardened, 15 to 20 minutes.
