And the woman saw that the tree was good for eating and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable for comprehension, and she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her and he ate. (Bereishis 3:6)

One of the widely known parts of the Torah, Chava giving Adam the apple (or fig or estrog). There is a debate on what the exact fruit was, but for this Parsha dessert we are going with the apple opinion. These chocolate dipped, candy encrusted apples were as fun to make as they were to eat! The kids and adults loved them and I felt good that it was a moderately healthy dessert. I made these dairy but they can be easily made parve. 

Tempting Chocolate and Candy Covered Apples

Ingredients:

6 apples 
6 popsicle or cookie sticks
6 oz (half a bag) chocolate chips
sprinkles, candies, crushed cookies, etc for decorating

Method:
Wash and dry apples. Remove the stems and insert stick were the stem was. Refrigerate apples while preparing chocolate. Melt chocolate over a double broiler. Dip apples into chocolate and rolls in desired topping. (Note: I found that I needed to let the chocolate set a bit before rolling in the heavier toppings) Return apples to refrigerator to set completely.
