These Chocolate Covered Apple Easter Chicks would be such a fun display and dessert on Easter Sunday! They would also be great for a barn party, Spring, or Summer get together. The chocolate chickens are dipped in coconut that is colored brown to resemble hay or a nest. Here’s what I did to make these little chickens:

You’ll Need: for 8 medium sized chicks, or 4 large apple chicks

 

  • small  to medium apples – like macintosh, gala
  • Yellow Straws – I found mine at Michael’s Craft Store in the Easter Section 
  • *Another option in place of straws is lollipop sticks or wooden sticks
  • Yellow Chocolate Melts – Such as Wilton 12 oz. bag
  • Candy Eyes
  • Orange Jelly Beans – 2
  • Coconut Shavings
  • Copper Gel Food Coloring – Wilton makes this – Light brown would also work

Equipment:

  • Scissors
  • Wooden Dowel to dip the apples with
  • Wax Paper
  • Medium Glass Bowl
