Think Happy Thoughts

We went apple picking a while back and since we had a bushel which translated into 40lbs of apples I had some work to do in coming up with creative ways to eat an apple. My middle child will be happy just grabbing an apple to snack on morning, noon and night but the other two children occasionally need Mama’s creativity to get them to fully enjoy an apple treat. That is where this idea came from …. one Mom attempting to find a creative apple snack for her youngsters.
Use the apple wedger to create apple slices that will all fit back together as if the apple were whole again. Check to ensure there is no core pieces left within each wedge, depending upon the size of the apple there may be a few slices that need a little trimming with a sharp knife.
Once your apple wedges are all set to utilize for this snack idea; start placing peanut butter two wedges at a time together and work slowly as you connect each wedge to the other with peanut butter. The peanut butter will act similar to glue to keep the apple wedges altogether until you have a full apple, minus the core, stuck together with peanut butter.
Wrap the apple with saran wrap or similar product, tightly to ensure the apple stays together firmly. Send to school with children as a school snack or don’t wrap it and enjoy as a mid day snack at home.
