Not worth the work of removing teh core from the apple. When I cut the apples the the filling just fell out. It was a very tasty filling though, but it would have been a lot easier just to cut up the apples normally and put the filling on top.
These were a huge hit at our house. My daughter and I were making supper together and she chose these to make for dessert. My husband and I loved these so much we made a few more for ourselves for snacks!! We uses craisens instead of raisens because my daughter doesn't like raisens.
Wow, I can't believe that I have never rated this. I found and made this recipe about 1 1/2 years ago but just never reviewed it. I'm very sorry that it has taken me so long to review it. It was an absolutely wonderful recipe that I used for a client of mine who was trying to loose a little weight. When I would make them for her I would always eat any left overs that I would have, and then I just started making my own batches. I made this recipe religiously for atleast 6 monthes, and ate one of these apples everything morning before my run. I love this recipe! Thanx for posting!
Oh Miss Erin, DO try these!! Wow!!! I made these to serve at my son's 9th birthday party recently, and they were a hit! I brushed the surfaces after cutting with diluted lemon juice to prevent discoloration. These kept so well, wrapped tightly in plastic, that I was able to enjoy them for the next couple of days - YUM! I found that it's important to be sure the chocolate chips are very finely chopped, as the larger chunks are a bit of a surprise, especially when chilled. Also, being from Michigan originally, I am a big fan of cherries, so I substituted dried cherries for the raisins, with fabulous results. I'm SO glad you posted this recipe, Miss Erin! We're adding this to our file of keepers.
My kids loved these! The only thing I might do different would be to cut the recipe in half since we dont eat that many apples at a time. I am sure the kids will ask for these again soon.
