- 3 granny smith apples
- 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I use the brand enjoy-life, sub carob chips for AIP)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp black cocoa powder (omit for AIP)
- 1/2 tsp activated charcoal (see notes)
- Wash the apples well and trim the stems. Pierce the top of the apple with a small skewer or a popsicle stick. Set aside on a plate lined with parchment paper.
- Add the chocolate chips to a glass bowl with the coconut oil and set it aside. Prepare a double boiler by bringing a small pot of water (filled about two-thirds of the way) to a low boil. Add the bowl over the top of the pot and stir continuously until melted. Once melted, carefully remove.
- Stir in the black cocoa and charcoal and combine.
- Take an apple and roll it in the melted chocolate, until coated. Hold the apple over the bowl and let the excess chocolate drip off before transferring to the parchment-lined plate. Repeat with all of the apples and place in the fridge to harden for 2 hours.
- Serve once hardened or store in the fridge for a day or so.
Activated charcoal is used as a natural food coloring in this recipe and though it’s a very small amount, charcoal can bind to minerals and medications. Ask your doctor about consuming it.
