Jackson Pollock Candied Apples

Randy Mayor; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 apple)
Named for the abstract expressionist's signature paint-splattered canvases, these apples make great Halloween treats. Green Granny Smiths go well with the sweet white and bittersweet chocolates, but use any apple you like. Look for wooden sticks at craft supply stores, or use forks instead.

Ingredients

  • 6 Granny Smith apples
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 1/2 ounces premium white baking chocolate (such as Baker's), coarsely chopped
