    ellie_'s Note:

    Although I haven't made these yet I think these apples are pretty for Halloween and easy enough for kids to make. Prep time includes microwaving time. Cook time is chilling time. Recipe source: Woman's Day (November 2004)

      Very messy and sticky for me to make. Very crunchy and yummy for the kids. I don't know how this doesn't pull their teeth out, but it was good, even though I wasn't able to eat a whole one. This is one for the grown-ups to make (and let the little ones help) but let the kiddies eat these or else you could pull out all your fillings. Ahhh, to be a kiddie again!
