AVT is NOT good for the waistline!

We've been working with an apple theme today, so I made some mini candied apples (WAY easy to make and wonderfully delicious). We got in some wonderful language: apple, dip, sprinkles, twirl, sticky, green, sweet, sour, thick, cover, harden, tummyache.
I think I have about 10 of these puppies left, and let's just say that the kids didn't eat that many. I'm staying away from all scales until further notice!

Mini Candied Apple Recipe:


Apples (I used Granny Smith)
Candy Chips (I used butterscotch)
Sprinkles and/or chopped nuts
Melon baller
Lollipop sticks or toothpicks


Using the mellon baller, scoop out several "mini" apples from the big apple. Make sure some peel is left on each mini-apple.

Cut lollipop sticks in half at an angle (for easier insertion). Stick the pointed end of the stick into the mini-apple.

Melt candy chips in the microwave (I melted a cup of chips by nuking them for 45 seconds).

Dip each mini-apple in the melted candy chips, then roll in sprinkles. Set on wax paper to harden, then refrigerate until eaten.

Oh my gosh, those look so delicious! And what a great idea to scoop it out-- because many times I will look at a whole caramel apple and not be able to eat it all.
