Ingredients - Makes 10-15 donuts

  • 3 Apples, cored
  • 85g cacao butter
  • 55g cacao powder
  • 20g maple syrup

Equipment: Apple corer


Preparing The Chocolate:
Heat a small pot of water. Place a bowl on top once the water is boiling with the cacao butter until melted. Once melted, remove from heat and mix in cacao powder and maple syrup.

Preparing apples:
Using an apple corer, puncture the top of the apple and remove the core.

Preparing apple donuts:
Simply dip your cored apples with the desired amount of chocolate coating (we dipped them fully!), and add your desired toppings – pop in the fridge for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to fully set.

Place on a sharing platter to share with your friends and family at your next gathering.
