Every year I hope for a white Christmas. I love seeing the tree branches coated in white and bundling the kids up to go outside and play. Unforunately, a white Christmas can’t always be guaranteed, but a snow covered caramel apple is a decent replacement.
This apple really couldn’t be easier to make, and it has a very elegant and festive appearance that’s perfect for winter. I used this kit from Chocoley, which included the chocolate, caramel, and sticks so I only had to get the apples and shredded coconut from the store.
To create this apple I:
- Washed the apples with soap and an abrasive sponge. This removes any wax residue on the apple’s skin.
- Inserted sticks
- Melted caramel, dipped the apples, and placed coated apples on a parchment paper lined tray to cool in the fridge (approximately 15 minutes).
- Next, I melted the chocolate over a double boiler and dipped the apples again. I allowed them to set for a few minute at room temperature and dropped the coconut on them like snow. Some roll their apples in their chosen toppings, but I haven’t had much luck with that technique. It may require more setting time for the chocolate than I usually allow. (It’s chocolate! My patience only lasts so long.)
- Enjoy! The Chocoley kit also comes with bags, which are great for gift giving.
This might be a fun addition to a Christmas cookie party or a great treat for friends, neighbors, and teachers, and just in case you want to turn it into a little gift, I made a little printable label too. Click here to get your copy.

I received the kit from Chocoley for free, but all thoughts, opinions, and (thankfully) delicious caramel apples are completely my own. For more information, please click here to visit my disclosure page.
What’s your favorite caramel apple topping?
Ohhhh, yummy! I love caramel apples and this one covered in snow looks amazing! Thanks for sharing. PINNED!
Thanks so much, Michelle!
Oh it’s so pretty. I love snow colored anything. I hope it snows here this winter, that’d be nice.
Thanks, Leslie. I’m hoping for a white Christmas this year too. It’s one of the few times I don’t mind a ton of snow and cold weather. 🙂
Those look amazing! I am a HUGE fan of caramel apples! I usually make them for Halloween, but they can totally be a year round treat for me. The traditional ones, caramel and nuts, are my favorite. Which do you like best?
It’s so hard to choose! I really like the mix of salty and sweet so my favorite is a mix of those. The caramel and nut apples are so good. Unfortunatley, my son’s allergic to peanuts so we aren’t able to make those (or have Reeses, pb&j sandwiches… who knew I could miss peanut butter so much?), but I actually have two other apples that I made and am hoping to share soon, and one of them is my favorite.

I’ve always wanted to try a caramel apple and I think I know which one I will begin with. This looks very yummy – love the coconut! Will be sharing on Pinterest 🙂
Thanks, Cristina! It’s hard to go wrong with caramel and chocolate, right 🙂 I hope you’ll come back and let me know how they turn out.
