Chocolate Peanut Butter Coated Apples

Chocolate covered apples with an added flavor -- peanut butter!

Yield

10 to 12 apples

Ingredients

10 to 12 wooden popsicle sticks
10 to 12 medium apples, stems removed
1 2/3 cups (10 ounce package) Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup confectioners' (powdered) sugar
2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
Mounds Sweetened Coconut Flakes or chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Chips (optional)

Directions

Insert wooden stick into each washed and dried apple. Cover tray with wax paper.

Stir together peanut butter chips and oil in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 1/2 minutes or until chips are softened. Stir until melted. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted when stirred.

Stir together powdered sugar and cocoa; gradually add to melted chip mixture, stirring until smooth. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until very warm.

Dip apples in mixture; twirl to remove excess coating. (If coating becomes too thick, return to microwave for a few seconds or add additional oil 1 teaspoon at a time.) Roll lower half of coated apple in coconut or chopped chips, if desired. Allow to cool on prepared tray. Refrigerate, if desired.
