Sure, You could sub Hershey and bits if you want. I just wanted to show the recipe, give credit to Godiva, this is a classic chocolate gourmet candy apple recipe. Any kind of nuts, M&Ms, coconut, sprinkles goes.

Now you girls have got me thinking...
besides apples (I agree - Granny Smiths are best!), marshmallows and pretzel rods, what other foods do you dip?
I'm just thinking about how fun it would be to have a holiday "dipping" party for my girlfriends, where we could all dip and have lovely gifts when we were done!
(We already do a cookie exchange, but sometimes those need pep!)

Ritz crackers with peanut butter dipped in white or milk chocolate
Oreos dipped in chocolate(this is a rich one!)
I'm sure I can think of some more but my brain is only half awake right now.

Chocolate Dippers:
Big chunks of Crystallized Ginger
Big strips of Crystallized Orange Zest
Just about any nice dried fruit, Pineapple!
Lovely gifts.

I don't like strawberries because you really need the SUPERSIZED ones, and they should be hard. Any soft ones get leaky.

I agree, Bucky -
it is wonderful! If you have any CostPlus stores near you, they sell ghiradelli "pieces", which are strange, odd shapes, but quite large and very inexpensive. My friend and I use these for baking.
