Easy & Delicious: Hand Dipped Coconut Cinnamon Apples on a Stick

Ma would have used real homemade caramel but she didn't worry about things like too much sugar. For those of us looking for a dairy-free, sugar-free (well the apple has sugar ;0) ), alternative these coconut apples on a stick hit the spot!

Hand Dipped Coconut Cinnamon Apples on a Stick

small or mini sized apples
coconut butter
coconut oil
lolly pop sticks or wood skewers

Scoop coconut butter into a small prep bowl, custard cup, or small ramekin. The size depends on the size of your apples. You should be able to fit your apple all the way inside the bowl. Scoop enough coconut butter to fill the bowl as high as your apple will be when you are dipping it in the bowl.

Melt the coconut butter in the microwave. Start with a low power and only 20 seconds at a time, stirring it each time until you have the creamy consistency.

Add a little coconut oil to the mix to thin it out.

Sprinkle your desired amount of cinnamon into the coconut butter and mix well.

Pierce your apples with your stick of choice and get ready to dunk them in your mix! Coat them well and lay them on a plate or tray lined with wax paper. Put them in the refrigerator to let the mix harden. This usually only takes about 15 minutes.
