Chocolate Spiralized Apple Strings

Here’s the story about these apple strings: basically, I had the idea for these for awhile, but I never thought they were really “worthy” of a blog post, because they seemed so simple and effortless.

Well, after featuring them on Instagram stories, all of the “oohs” and “ahhs” warranted me to share the actual recipe, no matter how simple it is!

And hey, these are simple, but they’re certainly delicious!

I used to always love getting caramel apples around Halloween, but I never really enjoyed them, because they were a pain to eat – they were hard to bite into, super sticky, and hard to “just have a little.”

I love chocolate covered fruit, and the apple doesn’t get enough love – it’s usually the strawberry or banana.

Chocolate Spiralized Apple Strings

Well, today, I’m giving apples a LOT of love and smothering them in chocolate. The toppings are up to you, I just wanted to show you the actual method of making these.

Here are some topping suggestions:

  • Coconut flakes (as in the pictures)
  • Pretzels and sea salt (as in the pictures)
  • Raisins and almonds
  • Nut butter and sea salt
  • Pistachios and raisins
  • Chopped peppermints
  • Sprinkles

I used my favorite non-dairy chocolate chips, Enjoy Life chocolate – it melts easily and tastes just as good as the real deal.

I have made this delightful treat with a pear as well as a single serving. I am doing a sugar de-tox program and I can only use one square of 85% chocolate per day. Believe me when you are sugar deprived it is wonderful. I figure it is 45 second from start to finish. I put the one square of chocolate on a piece of parchment and microwave for 45 seconds and immediately spread it over the one serving of fruit. Mix with my hands. A splash of cinnamon is a nice addition. I understand that it is wonderful with fresh blueberries as well.
Ilene says:
Hello, just wondering what size blade you used and if you trimmed them? Why freeze them? Does that soften the apple? Do you eat them frozen? Or let them thaw a bit first? I want to make these today!!
Ali Maffucci says:
Eat them straight out of the freezer, don't let them thaw! Use Blade C.
Robyn says:
I also was wondering why you freeze them and if you ate them frozen. I am sorry if this is a repeated question but I do not see an answer on this.
Dottie says:
Does the Apple turn brown in color???
mary m young says:
No point in pealing them. I lay them out on parchment paper and freeze. Eat them frozen. Yes they are messy to eat but it is a wonderful chocolate fix for the deprived! Use firm fruit. I used the brown skinned pear. Enjoy!
Karen K says:
Tried these last night Ali - delicious - they soon warm up just a little bit as soon as you take them out of the freezer and put them in your mouth. I topped with some dried cranberries, desiccated coconut and pecans - yummy !

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
