A Great Apple Snack

As I have mentioned previously, we have a lot of apples at our house. It is so nice to grab a fresh apple when the afternoon munchies hit. A typical way I like to have apples for a snack is to scoop some peanut butter into a small bowl, and dip the apple slices into it before taking a big bite. The other day I improved on that a bit. At least I think it was an improvement. I put some peanut butter into a small bowl, and pushed it up against the sides of the bowl leaving a small well in the middle. Then I put a small amount of chocolate syrup into the well, heated it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds, or when the chocolate started to bubble. I gave it a good stir, and now I don't know that I will ever be able to go back to the plain old peanut butter again. This was quite tasty!!

I LOVE peanut butter on my apple slices! Your new "spin" on it sounds sooo yummy, I'll have to try it! Kind of like a peanut butter cup apple! You could even coat a whole apple on a stick in peanut butter, and then dip it in chocolate! That would be yummier then a normal candied or carmel apple! :-) Love you!

I really like your idea about coating the entire apple in peanut butter & then chocolate! I'm actually going to try that.
