Dipped apple wedges decorated like footballs make a sweet treat for your favorite playoff celebration, tailgate party or after-game snack for the tiniest tackle on the team. Use Wilton Short Dipping Containers to easily dip apple wedges in delicious Candy Melts candy.
Dip apples. Soak apples in lemon-lime soda for 10 to 15 minutes; remove from soda and dry completely. Melt light cocoa and white Candy Melts candy, separately, according to package directions. Use tongs to dip slices into melted light cocoa candy. Tap to smooth and remove excess candy. Place wedges on parchment paper-covered cake board. Chill until firm, about 10 minutes.
Decorate wedges. Use melted white candy in cut parchment bag to pipe laces and stripes onto each dipped treat.
It's easy to accent dipped candy with fun toppings. Immediately after dipping, roll the candy in your favorite topping and refrigerate. Chopped nuts, Wilton Sprinkles and Nonpareils, shredded coconut or cocoa powder are delicious choices.
