Spirals of apple are drizzled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with an array of toppings - nuts, dried fruit, coconut and sea salt are our favorites. This dessert is best eaten right out of the freezer.

  • 3 apples (such as Gala or Honeycrisp), stemmed
  • 10 oz dark mini chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate of choice)
  • optional toppings: coconut flakes, almonds, pistachios, dried unsweetened cherries or raisins, sea salt


1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Working one at a time, secure apples in a spiralizer and turn crank to create noodles, about the thickness of linguine. Pat dry with a clean towel and lay noodles in an even layer on prepared baking sheet.

2. Place chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of barely simmering water, making sure bottom of bowl doesn’t touch water, stirring occasionally until melted. Remove bowl from heat and let chocolate cool slightly, about 7 minutes.

3. Using a spoon, drizzle chocolate over apple noodles and top with desired toppings. Freeze for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. Serve frozen, broken or cut into pieces.
