Enough about moving! I just felt the need to be a tad longer in my story since this "recipe" I am sharing today is silly short.
I saw this recipe on the Earth Fare website and thought it was insanely adorable. Simple and a perfect afternoon snack. If you aren't into the whole peanut butter and apple combo, you could always use caramel apple dip as well. The toppings are completely versatile so use what ever you like!
- 2 different colored apples, cored and cut into 3/4" slices
- fresh lemon juice
- 1/3 cup peanut butter or almond butter
- 2 tbsp of each topping: trail mix, raisins, banana slices, granola, cereal, etc. I used raisins, chocolate Cheerios, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds
- Pretzel rod
Core the apples and cut into 3/4" slices and sprinkle with lemon juice. (The lemon juice will prevent the apples from turning brown).
Spread the peanut butter onto each slice, covering the white part.
After all slices are covered with peanut butter, take bottom slice and sprinkle with desired topping. Take the next apple slice and stack it on top. Make sure you are alternating apple colors. Sprinkle this slice with another topping. The idea is to create layers of apple slices with toppings in between so they stack on top of one another.
Once you stack all layers on top of one another, the stacked slices will create a whole apple, like when you started.
Take a small amount of peanut butter and fill the middle part where the stem used to be.
Insert pretzel rod into the middle hole. This will create your new "stem".
