RAW Chocolate Ganache Peanut Butter Candy Apple

One of my favorite things during the Fall season as a kid was to find a big juicy red candy apple. My favorite of course was the caramel apples. I am far from being a kid, well physically that is, but I still love a big juicy candy apple. My education and battling kidney disease over 40 years has moved me toward a more wholesome way of eating. I love eating good food. Hey my dad was a chef. He taught me technique and presentation. My mom taught me how to flavor food. How to make it really come alive.

Well this candy apple will blow your mind with flavor and you will not realize you are eating something super healthy.

Enjoy!

Remember to Set the Table with Love

RAW CHOCOLATE GANACHE PEANUT BUTTER CANDY APPLE
RAW CHOCOLATE GANACHE PEANUT BUTTER CANDY APPLE

Ingredients

The Peanut Butter topping

1 honey crisp apple

1/2 cup of Raw Peanut butter in it’s oil

1 tbsp maple syrup

pinch of sea salt to taste

DIRECTIONS

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir the peanut butter with it’s oils. This will make it pliable. If it is too thick add more peanut oil or melted coconut oil. Add the peanut butter onto the apple using a small spatula or small spoon. Cover the whole apple. Pour the chocolate ganache onto the peanut butter, gently spreading it all around the apple. You want to cover the peanut butter with ganache leaving a little peanut butter exposed. Place in the fridge to set. Be patient with the process. It can be sticky, but yummy.

The Raw Chocolate Ganache

3 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp raw cacao powder (or regular cocoa powder if you don’t have)
1 tsp vanilla

DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.  If ganache is runny add a little more coconut oil and cacao powder. The coconut oil will make it thicker once refrigerated.  Just a little at a time.  Place in the fridge to thicken for just a few minutes. You want a ganache that is easy to add to the apple, so it needs to be pourable.

If the sauce is too cold and thickens up too much, simply place closed bottle into a bowl of hot water until it melts. Add the sauce to the peanut butter part of the apple.
