It’s apple season in New York, so when I got my hands on a review copy of the I Heart Naptime Cookbook and saw these adorable apples, I new I had to make them. This cookbook is beautiful, filled with easy family-friendly recipes, and every recipe which take less than an hour to prepare.

These apples are really easy to make, and perfect to make with the kids. My favorite was the Chocolate and Peanut Butter, which is the perfect snack to satisfy a sweet tooth. Jamielyn also suggest marshmallow cream and sprinkles as her kid’s favorite option. I calculated the nutritional info based on each drizzle with 1/8 oz of chocolate and 1/8 oz of peanut butter. If you swap white chocolate for peanut butter, the nutritional info is very close and the points were the same.

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 tart green apples
  • 1/4 cup melted milk chocolate*
  • 1/4 cup melted peanut butter or 1/4 cup melted white chocolate*
  • optional toppings: sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, toasted coconut, craisins, nuts, granola

Directions:

To melt chocolate, in a small bowl microwave 30 seconds, stir, repeat until melted. To melt peanut butter, microwave in a small bowl 30 seconds. Transfer to ziplock bags if you wish for easier piping, or you can use a spatula or spoon to drizzle it over the apples.

Slice the apples into 12 1/4-inch thick slices. Using a 1-inch round cookie cutter, core the apple slices (or you can use a knife).

Place the apple slices on wax paper and drizzle with your favorite toppings. Eat right away.

Apples brown quick, you can put lemon juice on top to prevent them from browning. *Nutritional info based on 1/8 oz chocolate and 1/8 oz peanut butter per slice.
