Your best bet to find enchanted golden apples is to make your way to an Ancient City and look in the many chests there. Ancient cities usually spawn below the height of Y=-20, near bedrock. You can most commonly discover them at the height of Y=-40. A general rule of thumb to follow in finding the Ancient City is to look for high mountain ranges in drier biomes, with a cave system underneath. Keep digging till you hit Y = -20 and branch out a bit to see if you find the city. Note that the Ancient City is a very dangerous place, crawling with Wardens so if you venture down there be prepared to fight.
