Chocolate Covered Apple Pretzels + Printable!

Happy Sunday folks! I hope everyone’s thoroughly enjoying the official last day of summer! I am so ready for fall over here. I’m ready to bust out the pumpkins first chance I get. Plus I am so over this heat & unfortunately, we most likely have a couple more months of it before it really cools off.

I have no children & I am not a teacher, nor am I going back to school tomorrow (Praise the Lord!). However, I can still appreciate these “Back to School” treats & I’m sure you can too!

Start by melting the candy chips according to the package directions in the microwave.

Quick while it’s melting separate out some green & brown M&M’s to use as stems. This was very hard for me because the green M&M’s are my favorite.

Now that everything’s ready it’s time to dip or be dipped. I used a fork to dunk each pretzel in the chocolate. Or whatever it is. I don’t think it’s really chocolate at all.

Lay on a baking rack to dry or parchment paper & immediately top with an M&M. Let them fully dry & ta-da apples!

Give these to every teacher you know, they’re going to need them by the end of the week! You could even make them for an after-school snack or special lunch surprise. Or you can make them for yourself just because, like me!
