Cheesecake Stuffed Apples are a gourmet apple that you will love. A chocolate-dipped apple that is stuffed with a no-bake cheesecake filling and drizzled with caramel, chocolate, and candy bar crumbles!
A fruit dessert recipe that will win over anyone with one bite. I loved these dipped apples because they were a fun and different recipe. Serve as a summer dessert or a fall dessert. It works for either season!
How to Make
Step 1: The first thing to do is to wash and dry your apples. Then cut off the top, and use a spoon or melon scoop to scoop out the center of the apple.
Once it is cored out, you will use lemon just to brush over the apple to help prevent it from browning.
Step 2: Now you will melt your dipping chocolate. I used a larger measuring cup, so it would dip easily.
I used a wooden skewer to poke into the apple so I could dip in the chocolate easily.
Step 3: Set the apple on parchment paper to let it set up. Then in a stand mixer whip up the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Then spoon into a piping bag.
Pipe the cheesecake filling into the apples. There is enough cheesecake to do 6 small apples.
Step 4: Drizzle with melted chocolate, caramel sauce, and even top with candy bars. I did some with Snickers, Twix, and Peanut Butter Snickers!
Storing Stuffed Apples
You will store the apples in an airtight container in the fridge. These are best when eaten soon after they are made. As the apples will soften and break down a bit.
- Whipped Cream
- Dip in white chocolate instead of milk chocolate
- chocolate chips
- Top with summer fruit
- Graham cracker crust
- Dark chocolate shavings
- Caramel Sauce
Best Apples To Use
Granny Smith apples are my preference for these. Now, you could use another variety of apple if you prefer. I love the tart served next to the sweet of the toppings.
Also, for another indulgent dessert try these fried Oreos.
What If I Don’t Want To Use Melting Chocolate
So I used a chocolate almond bark for my chocolate. I did that because you want the outside of your apples to harden up nicely. If you want to use a classic chocolate chip you are welcome to.
I do recommend that you mix in 1 tablespoon of shortening. Then heat the chocolate chips up in the microwave or with a double boiler.
The shortening will help to give you a harder coating that you want for these apples!
Can I Do White Chocolate Dipped Apples
Feel free to use whatever chocolate you prefer. I wanted dark chocolate because that is what we prefer. But, if you enjoy white, go for it.
How to Store Gourmet Apples
Your apples will need to be stored in an airtight container and in the fridge. They will spoil if left on the counter. They will store for up to 48 hours in the fridge.
But as I mentioned above they are best served fresh.
