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.
  • 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!!
    • Eat them straight out of the freezer, don't let them thaw! Use Blade C.
  • 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.
  • Does the Apple turn brown in color???
  • 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!
  • 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 !
