Melt the Chocolate

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt your chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until they’re smooth and glossy. Alternatively, you can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. This step is key, so don’t rush it! I used milk chocolate melts, but you could use semi-sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate, whatever you prefer.

On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, pour the melted chocolate and spread it evenly, forming the base layer. The parchment paper will make it easier to remove the bark later.

Then place it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes so the chocolate sets up.

Prep the Apples

Start by washing, coring, and slicing your apples into small, bite-sized chunks. You can peel them if you prefer, but I love the extra crunch and color the skin provides.

I used Granny Smith apples for my bark, but you can use whatever you prefer. I think a crisp apple works best though. I used only half a giant diced apple for this recipe.

Spread the Caramel

For my caramel sauce layer I used a caramel dip. It is already done and a great consistency that is spreadable. So after the chocolate has set up in the fridge you just spread the caramel on top of the chocolate.

Add the Apples

Now, it’s time for the star of the show—those juicy apple chunks. Arrange them on top of the caramel layer. You can go as light or as generous as you like with the apple pieces. If you’re feeling adventurous, this is where you can sprinkle some crushed nuts and a pinch of sea salt for that perfect balance of sweet and salty.

Chill and Set

Pop the baking sheet in the refrigerator and allow your creation to set for about 1 hour. You’ll know it’s ready when everything is firm and breakable. Then break them into bite size pieces to enjoy!

Other Topping Options

  • pretzels – crumble chunks of pretzels for some great crunch and saltiness

  • sea salt flakes – if you love a salted caramel this addition sprinkled on top will be delicious

The result is a fantastic medley of flavors and textures. The smooth, velvety chocolate is beautifully contrasted by the chewy, rich caramel, while the fresh, crisp apple chunks add a delightful crunch and a burst of fruity goodness.
