Chocolate Turtle Apple Slices are thick slices of Fuji apples covered in melted chocolate, drizzled with caramel and topped with nuts. And I love that there are just 5 ingredients in this recipe. Keeping it simple is always the best way to go when possible!

Chocolate Turtle Apple Slices

  • Servings: 1 apple slice
  • Yield: 10-12
  • Prep Time: 1 hr 5 min


  • 2 very large Fuji apples
  • 3 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup caramels, melted
  • Chopped pecans
  • Popsicle sticks


  1. Slice apples into ½" pieces. With a knife make a little slit in the bottom of each apple slice to make it easier to insert a popsicle stick.
  2. Melt chips in the microwave on high for about 2 minutes. Stir in coconut oil. Dip apple slices in chocolate and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Place caramels in microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 45-60 seconds. Do NOT overheat. Stir until smooth. Drizzle melted caramel over chocolate and sprinkle with nuts.
  4. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Serve and enjoy immediately. Apples are best the first day. Store in refrigerator.
