The October Edit 2023 at Garden Trading

As we behold the beauty of changing leaves and taste the cool, crisp breeze; it’s time to pick the last crop of apples and stash the lawnmower away. Despite the bright days we’ve been savouring, autumn is taking on a chillier feel as we reach the season’s peak. When the landscape turns, so too do our homes, particularly when the clocks roll back and nesting season is upon us. Ready to rekindle cosy? Welcome shorter days with the homeware featured in our lighting and fireside event and create a warm, cocooning atmosphere that makes sure your living space – outdoors and in - is braced for hibernation.

Chocolate Apple Recipe

October chocolate apples with sticks

chocolate apples recipe

Prepare the apples. Wash and polish them, remove the stalks, then turn them over and firmly push a strong skewer into the bottom of each apple.

Line a small baking tray or plate with baking paper.

Break up the chocolate and place in a bain marie (or use a glass bowl over a pan with water) with simmering water to slowly melt, stirring to ensure it melts evenly. Heat only until just melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate into a small, deep bowl.

Holding them by the sticks, dip each apple in the chocolate, turning them until they are completely coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl, then place each apple on the lined tray, skewer side up.

Working quickly, decorate each chocolate coated apple with the fruit and/or sprinkles, starting with the smallest first. Get creative and add all of your favourite toppings.
