Now that fall is officially here, it’s time we switched out our favorite summer treats for those beloved fall-inspired ones. Here’s a spin on the classic fall staple- the candied caramel apple. Though often made with a sweet caramel coating, we used our Cooking Grade Matcha + white chocolate to coat ours for the perfect balance of sweet and tart (adapted from Hudson and Emily). Sweet and creamy with just a hint of sour, these Matcha Candied Apples are the perfect way to celebrate fall. So grab your friends and loved ones, a bunch of your favorite toppings, and have a candied apple party for the perfect fall celebration!

 

Makes 6 candied apples

Ingredients:

  • 6 small granny smith apples
  • 6-8 oz white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha
  • Chocolate Sprinkles; as needed
  • Chopped nuts of your choice; as needed
  • Other desired toppings
  • Popsicle sticks or any other stick

 

Directions:

  1. Wash and remove stems from granny smith apples. (You can use your favorite red apple for a sweeter result)
  2. Pierce the sticks into the apple, where the stem had been removed.
  3. Pour 6-8 oz (appx ½ bag) white chocolate chips into a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and then microwave for 30 more seconds. If the chocolate chips are not yet melted, microwave some more in 10 second intervals.
  4. Sift 1 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha over the melted chocolate. Stir using a spoon until incorporated.
  5. Dip and coat the apples with Matcha white chocolate mixture. It helps to use the front of a spoon to “carve” the Matcha chocolate mixture onto the apple.
  6. Dip the bottom third of the apple into your desired toppings.
  7. Place onto parchment paper to dry.
  8. Enjoy!
