Adult supervision required

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside. Pour sprinkles and/or other toppings of choice onto a plate and set aside (use a separate plate for each type of topping).
  2. Place the chocolate chips in the microwave-safe glass bowl, add coconut oil, and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
  3. Remove bowl from microwave. Stir the mixture, then microwave again for 20 seconds. Remove bowl from microwave. Stir again. If the chips are not fully melted, microwave again for 10 seconds. Repeat until chocolate is completely melted.
  4. Cut the apples into slices. Insert wooden skewers into each slice.
  5. Holding it by the skewer, dip an apple slice into the melted chocolate. Swirl until the bottom half of the slice is covered with chocolate. Turn the apple from side to side to cover as much of the apple as you want.
  6. Holding the dipped apple over the plate of sprinkles or other topping, spoon sprinkles onto the chocolate. Place the dipped apples onto the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 20 minutes before eating.

CHOCOLATE APPLE POPS   

Chef Shiri Says… 

The best way to prevent sliced apples from turning brown is to dribble a little lemon juice over the slices. The acid in the lemon juice slows the enzymes that cause the fruit to brown.

Prayer Pointers From

Buzz the Brachos Bee

We should eat immediately after reciting a berachah,– without waiting to take the first bite. That is why we should always make sure that the food is ready to eat before the berachah is said.
