This is a great snack that we often enjoy when taking a walk or going on a road trip. They can be a little messy, but they are delicious and my kids love them. Be creative. We like Granny Smith apples best, but use what you like. The amounts and ingredients are a little vague, but you get the idea. The recipe says to core the apples, but to leave the bottoms in tact. We just core them through, but that's why they are a little messy. I might try placing all the filling ingredients in a plastic bag or cake decorating bag and squeezing it into the cored apple. We love these take-along treats. UPDATE: Turn these into a goulish treat by partially inserting a juicy gummy worm!
- 1 granny smith apple
- peanut butter
- mini chocolate chip (optional)
- dried cranberries (optional) or raisins (optional)
- coconut (optional)
- dried banana pieces (optional)
- granola cereal (optional)
- chopped nuts (optional)
- Core the apple, but leave the bottom in tact. Mix together your stuffing ingredients; peanut butter, chocolate chips, marshmallows, cranberries, etc. Stuff the center of the apple.
Good little snack. I don't think you can wrong with any of the optional ingredients.
I've been walking on my own since the tender age of 10 months. This just made it a lot more entertaining.
Chose this to make for PAC Spring '08. What a neat snack, whether at home or on the run! so quick and easy. I used Gala apples with PB, choc. chips, granola, some cinnamon and a hint of honey. I used a chopstick to push the mixture into the cored apple. The kids liked this. In fact the 5 yo had a fit when the other child took 2 bites of the apple (I made one for now.) Guess I have to make more! Edited to add: This made it into my Top Fav's of 2008 book. We've made this many times since.
