What sort of apple should you choose for this recipe? There are many different varieties: Red or Gold Delicious, Granny Smith, Macintosh, Gala, Cortland...the list goes on and on.

Each has its own characteristics, so check them all out. Galas are sweet, Granny Smiths are tart. The only recommendation for this recipe is that the apple be crisp so you get that satisfying CRUNCH! when you bite it.

{Makes 1 apple treat}

You'll need:

  • 1 apple
  • Peanut butter, other nut butter or soft-spread cheese
  • A little adult help


  • A plate
  • An apple corer/slicer or a sharp knife
  • A spoon
  • Plastic wrap
      1. Roll out the plastic wrap until the piece looks like a square.
      2. Lay the wrap over the plate. Center the apple on the wrap.
      3. Use the corer/slicer to cut through the apple. If you don't have this tool, don't worry. Ask mom or whoever's helping you to cut the apple and core it. Don't stress if it doesn't look the same as ours does, it will taste just as yummy.
      4. Here's where four hands are better than two. Ask mom to hold the apple while you put the nut butter in the middle.
      5. Push the apple back together and wrap it up.
      6. When you get to school, you just unwrap the apple and use the slices to scoop up a little nut butter. Yum!
