Sea Salt & Chocolate Dipped Apples

Jump To Recipe

Sea Salt & Chocolate Dipped Apples | Gluten-Free | Queen of Quinoa

Fruit dipped in chocolate. I don't really think it gets better than that. I mean, how can you go wrong with this stellar combo?

I'm all about apples right now. First, because I picked a gigantic bag three weeks ago and still have lots left. And second, because apples are like the best things on earth. Especially the ones we get up here. Locally grown VT apples. Trust me when I say, I think there's no better apple out there.

They're incredibly sweet, with little sour bursts with each crispy bite. Each variety has a slightly different flavor, but is just as tasty as the next. Growing up in VT, I just don't know if I'll ever be able to enjoy an apple as much as I do here.

Which brings me back to this amazing little treat. Chocolate dipped apples, sprinkled with sea salt.

  • 2 apples cored and sliced into 1" slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 squares of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia powder or more to taste
  • Sea salt to sprinkle


  • Toss the apple slices in the lemon juice. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and set aside.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler. Stir in the stevia powder. Add more stevia if you want the chocolate more sweet.
  • Dip each apple slice into the chocolate mixture and place on the baking sheet. If you have extra chocolate sauce after all the apples have been dipped, drizzle it over the apples until they're fully coated. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Cool completely in the refrigerator.

  1. Are apples good with chocolate? I always thought that would be a strange combo, but this looks delicious (and sophisticated).

    • Hi Asilia – it seems like this is your first time commenting, welcome to QofQ! Happy to have you here 🙂

      To answer your question, I was highly skeptical of the combo as well, but it actually turned out to be great! I love them. And the sea salt sprinkled on top added a great pop to the flavor.

    • I totally agree!! Hopefully your kids will like them. And plus, you could make this recipe with almost any kind of fruit! Berries, melon, bananas, pineapple – you name it 🙂

  2. I feel the same about Hood River, OR apples. We don’t get Vermont apples out here on the NW coast, but it would be fun to do a little taste test. Hood River apples would be tough to beat, though. 🙂 I love the fruit dipped in chocolate idea! Super easy & so yummy.

    • Ooh!! I would love to do a taste test! We don’t get Oregon apples out here, so it would be super interesting to see the difference. My favorite VT apples are Macintosh – they’re soft and sweet. Mmmm!
