Cracks in Chocolate Covering on Caramel Apples

I make a lot of caramel apples dipped in chocolate. My problem is that the chocolate will crack and sometimes the cracks are quite large. After I put the caramel on, I put in the frig to harden, then dip in chocolate. Then I put back in the frig to set the chocolate.


Can any one tell me how to stop the cracking? What am I doing wrong? I use Peter's brand of caramel and candy melts (wafers) for the chocolate.

Try cooling the apples at room temperature. They may be cooling too fast.

In most recipe using dipping chocolate they use shortening in the chocolate. Might try a tablespoon of shortening in the chocolate. Also like Ann said keep the apple at room temperature.
