White Chocolate Covered Apples

by Amateur Candy Maker

I need some helping making my white chocolate covered apples.

Hello, I am covering my apples with caramel, refrigerating them overnight, then covering them with white chocolate.

When I cover them with the white chocolate it seems to fall off the apple leaving it lumpy.

Please help!

Editor's Note:

Sorry we didn't get to answer this question for you earlier. You posted during a time when we were going through some serious health issues in our family and we had to leave the site to fend for itself while visitors helped visitors. :)

However, Sarah is correct, and that's what I would have suggested at the time if I had been able to answer your question.

If you decide to continue with your amateur candy making adventures (like most of us), do get yourself some Paramount Crystals to make your life easier. A bag only costs a couple of dollars and goes a long way.

Don't give up! :)

White chocolate dipped apples
by: Roo

I'm having the same issue. I've tried both white chocolate chips and Wilton white candy melts. Each time the chocolate is smooth but when I dip the caramel apple the chocolate, on the apple, gets lumpy, folds over etc. I can dip Oreos & strawberries just fine but the caramel apples become lumpy and blotchy. Help please :-)

How much chocolate to cover apples?
by: Angie

Hi Maryann,

The amount of chocolate needed to cover a chocolate covered apple varies. Yes, it depends on the size of the apples as you rightly guessed, but it also depends on how thick you coat the apples.

Some recipes you see for chocolate covered apples will say you can cover 6 apples with 1/2 pound of chocolate, while others will call for a full pound of chocolate! It's very confusing.

I think if it were me, I'd estimate about 10 apples per pound and get 5 pounds of chocolate.

It might actually be a good idea to do a small batch as a trial run. For example, just melt a half pound of chocolate and see how many apples you can cover with that.

Let us know what your chocolate to apple ratio turns out to be. I'm sure someone else is going to come along with the same question at some point in the future and we can direct them here. :)

Making White Chocolate Caramel Apples
by: Sarah

When you melted the white chocolate, was it completely smooth before you started dipping the apples?

White chocolate does sometimes get lumpy a lot easier than milk or dark chocolate, in my experience. You have to really be careful with it when melting. Don't overheat it and don't get any moisture in it.

It's better if you add some paramount crystals to your chocolate when you are melting it. You get a better consistency.

I wonder if your caramel was "damp" from coming out of the fridge and created a bit of a condensation problem when the white chocolate hit it.

I don't know when you posted your question, but I hope you got it sorted out and were able to enjoy your white chocolate covered apples.
