1.  Begin by taking approximately 1 cup of Wilton White Candy Melts and place in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat the chocolate for 1 minute.  Remove and stir.  Place the bowl back in the microwave and heat for another minute.  Remove and stir until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.

2.  Dip the top of your apple into the bowl of chocolate.  Allow excess chocolate to drip from apple back into the bowl,leaving an even coat of delicious, white chocolate.

Now it is time to create some fun and simple decor for your apple!  We found these natural, wood heart depressors at our local Michaels Craft Store and thought they would make the perfect apple accessory!

5.  Using your paint brush, add an thin layer of Mod Podge to the heart portion of your depressor.
