Want to spruce up a gift card as a gift? Want to make Christmas themed treats for your party? These Christmas Marbled Dipped Apples are the answer!!
This post is part of a sponsored week long event called #MerryEats, all opinions and words are 100% mine.
Christmas treats are the best, aren’t they y’all? December just seems to be the time of year when we all start to nibble on more sweets and the holiday treat making normally begins around December 1st and lasts all month long!
These Christmas Marbled Dipped Apples are not only a great little Christmas themed treat but they’re also a great way to present someone with a gift card or just to give as a present to a neighbor or friend!
…. Don’t forget to check out the giveaway at the bottom of this post…
Let’s just jump right into making these ok? I know it’s the holiday season and you’re busy, so let’s not waste any time.
First, collect your apples.
I’m using Envy Apples for these Christmas Marbled Dipped Apples because they sent me a beautiful box of tasty Envy Apples for #MerryEats week!
Wash the apples and make sure to dry them really well. You don’t want any water to touch the chocolate.
Stick a lollipop stick into each apple and set them aside.
Lay out a piece of parchment paper or foil.
While you can use any colors you want for your marbled apples we’re going with white, red and green for these Christmas Marbled Dipped Apples.
The white chocolate is the base for these apples while the red and green are the accent colors.
I used about 2-3 cups of melted white chocolate, 1/2 cup melted red chocolate and 1/2 cup melted green chocolate for these apples and got about 6 of them made before I had to remelt more chocolate.
Pour your three separate colors into three separate bowls, making sure the white chocolate is in a bowl that’s deep enough to dip the entire apple.
Melt your colored chocolate according to the package directions, I melt mine in the microwave in 30 second bursts until melted and smooth.
Once all of the chocolate is melted, drizzle a little bit of the red and green chocolate onto the top of the white.
Dip an apple down into the chocolate, twisting slowly just a bit, then stop twisting and remove the apple from the chocolate. Set it onto the parchment paper to harden.

Tips and Troubleshooting:
Why the chocolate isn’t coating right:
- Apples are too cold – chocolate won’t stick and will slide off of the apples
- Chocolate is too cold – chocolate will clump and not dip smooth
- Chocolate is too hot – chocolate will melt right off before it hardens
- Make sure to wash all of the wax off the apples if your apples have wax on them when you get them
- Stir and re-drizzle the red and green after each apple is dipped
- Let apples harden completely before trying to bag them
Now earlier in the post I mentioned that these cute Christmas Marbled Dipped Apples would be perfect to gift to someone with a gift card attached! Just wrap the apples up in clear treat bags, add some ribbon ,add a cute gift tags and then attach a gift card holder with a gift card in it!
Gift cards are great Christmas gifts but how great would one be with one of these Christmas Marbled Dipped Apples attached to it! I would say that’s better than just handing over a gift card this year!
