A blog about food, sweet and savory, as I am determined to try new recipes. Also, I am sure, I’ll tell a little about what my family is up to. And last but not least, what goes on in the making of our beautiful wedding cakes.
Chocolate covered apples are usually associated with the fair, fried foods and corn dogs. These are far from it. Dipped in decadent Belgian chocolate and then covered in colored non pareils. These were offered as a favor and placed on each guests plate for them to enjoy at a later time.
As my daughter and I were dipping the apples in chocolate we couldn't help but notice that they looked exactly like the old-fashioned fair tradition of bobbing for apples. Although we refrained from bobbing for the apples ourselves we had no choice but to document the moment.
After we dipped them we started to hand coat them in the teal and orange colored non pareils. we originally thought that we would just mix both colors on one apple and do that for all of them. When we started doing a few we thought that it might look nice if the apples had different patterns so we started doing half and half, stripes, and other designs.
The final product was wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with teal and orange ribbon and a tag saying "Gayle & Scott 08.24.2013" These cute favors were later enjoyed by the guests of the wedding. And finally a congratulations is in order to Gayle and Scott.

Marie-France: This blog entry was so much fun to see! The apple wedding favors, created by you and your daughter, were unique! My daughter and her fiancé chose these favors to compliment the apple theme they promoted on their recent wedding day. Having become engaged in an apple orchard, they wanted apples to play a role in their memorable event. The Belgian chocolate-dipped and nonpareil decorated apples were a perfect choice! You were able to mimic their color scheme by using orange and teal nonpareils. This coordinated so well with the overall ambiance of the day. The apples, wrapped in clear cellophane bags, were charming! And delicious! This is a wedding favor that will be long-remembered by Gayle and Scott - and their wedding guests! Thank you!

I liked it. This can sure work with children who dont eat fruits but if we will serve even only with chocolate dips they will enjoy it.
