These Paleo Apple Turtle Pops include green and red apple pops drenched in dark chocolate, drizzled with Paleo/Keto caramel sauce and topped with walnuts. These caramel apple pops are the perfect fall Paleo and Dairy Free treat.

Anytime I think of fall, I always picture a caramel dipped apple. As a child, making and eating a caramel apple in the fall was so special and memorable. To help bring back my childhood memories, I wanted to create the traditional caramel apple in a Paleo friendly way. Similarly, I came up with these cute and delicious Paleo Caramel Apple Turtle Pops with Walnuts.

From experience, these pops are much easier to eat than a whole big apple dipped in caramel. They are also super cute and perfect for a Fall or Halloween treat. Further, you can eat them at room temperature or even freeze for a cool sweet treat.

How to add the popsicle sticks to the caramel apple slices?

First, you have to be extremely careful when adding the sticks to the 1/2 slices of apples. To help, simply make a small slit in the bottom of each apple slice with a knife and stick the popsicle stick in. As a result, this will make the popsicle stick go in smoothly and not split the apple slice.

Can you freeze these Paleo Caramel Apple Turtle Pops?

Yes, for sure. In my opinion, I actually prefer freezing them and eat them like a cold popsicle. Freezing them gives the apples a nice crisp and even more flavor. Simply add to a cookie sheet and freeze for an hour or 2. You can also add these to a freezer proof container and freeze up to 3 months.

What is the best chocolate to use to dip these apple slices in?

Most importantly, for this recipe to be Paleo, you need to use a dark chocolate that is above 70%, and ideally above 85%. As the % goes up, the sugar % goes down.  To support you in finding the best chocolate, I have added my favorite go-to Paleo dark chocolate brands below. These brands are the cleanest chocolate bar you can find in the store without making your own.


Thrive Market Organic Paleo Dark Chocolate 72%

In addition to these brand, below are my other favorite options to buy on occasion. Although some of these brands contain cane sugar and RAW cane sugar, I still include in my diet on occasion. However, you can use for Paleo, it isn’t recommended in big amounts. Use sparingly.

Paleo Apple Turtle Pops

These Paleo Apple Turtle Pops include green and red apple pops drenched in dark chocolate, drizzled with Paleo/Keto caramel sauce and topped with walnuts. These  pops are the perfect fall Paleo and Dairy Free treat.

  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 1214 Pops 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 medium Honey Crisp Apples (cut into 1/2 inch slices)
  • 2 medium Green Granny Smith Apples (cut into 1/2 inch slices)
  • 3 1/2 cups dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 cup Keto/Paleo caramel sauce
  • chopped walnuts
  • 12 Popsicle sticks
  • coarse sea salt to garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare 2 baking sheet pans covered in parchment paper.
  2. Slice all 4 apples into ½-inch slices. Using a knife, make a slit at the bottom of each apple slice and insert the wooden popsicle stick. Place on the baking sheet.
  3. To melt the chocolate, fill bottom of double boiler with water and place on low heat. Place coarsely chopped dark chocolate in the top of double boiler over hot (not boiling) water and allow it to melt. Do not cover. When most of the chocolate is shiny, stir until smooth and add in the coconut oil or ghee to make it even smoother.
  4. You can either dip the apple slice in the chocolate or just cover the front of the apple slice with the melted chocolate. I prefer to have just the top coated and allow the back to be the raw apple slice. You will get more of the apple flavor this way.
  5. Once coated, add the apple pop to the baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse sea salt and chopped walnuts.
  6. Drizzle each chocolate coated apple slice with caramel. Eat immediately or freeze for an hour or so. Enjoy!

✨We all need quick meals and I’m obsessed with these  English Muffin Tuna Melts. They can be on the dinner table in under 15 minutes and can be tailored to be gluten and dairy free. 

 ✨ENGLISH MUFFIN TUNA MELTS✨
*3 English muffins split in half (gluten-free or regular)
*Butter (to toast muffins) optional
*6 slices Colby Jack cheese or cheese of choice (you can also use dairy-free cheese)
*6 slices red onion, thinly sliced (Optional, but adds nice crunch and flavor)
*Three 5-ounce cans of white meat tuna packed in water, drained
*2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
*2 tbsp dill relish or 2 large pickle spears, chopped
*1/3 cup homemade or mayo of choice
*1 tablespoon pickle juice
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
*Parsley for garnish

✨Instructions✨
1. MIX THE TUNA SALAD: In a medium mixing bowl, add the canned tuna and break up the tuna with a fork. Transfer the chopped onions, relish, pickle juice, salt/pepper, and mayo. Mix together until combined. 
2. TOAST MUFFINS: You can choose to toast the English muffins with butter under the broiler for 2-3 minutes. However, if you don’t want to toast before adding the tuna, that’s okay. It still turns out great without toasting muffins first. 
3. BUILD THE MELTS: Divide the tuna mixture evenly among each of the toasted English muffins. Add a thin slice red onion along with a thin slice of Colby Jack cheese over the top.  Return to the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 375F oven or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
