Apples, Apples and More Apples!

It's apple picking season and that means it's yummy food and snack season with all things apple! Take a look at some of the most delicious recipes our Curiosity Box team loves to snack on during the fall season:

Apple Oat Circles

The first recipe our team loves to enjoy is a healthy and quick snack that is a perfect pick me up in the afternoon! The little ones are sure to love this as an after school snack! This one’s so easy, the kids can even help!

 

Here's what you will need:

  • apples (whatever kind you choose!)

  • peanut butter or almond butter

  • oats

Core out the middle of the apple. Then slick the apple in slices. Spread the nut butter onto one of the slices and sprinkle oats.  Put another apple slice on top and that makes an easy apple protein sandwich!

Apple Dip - This one is seriously SOOOO good!

This recipe is perfect for functions, get together and parties all of the time! It's a family favourite and it always disappears fast! This one is dangerous too - you’ll have everyone asking for the recipe!

 

Here's what you will need:

  • Apples (we prefer the granny smith kind since the dip is so sweet)

  • Cream cheese

  • Apple Caramel Dip

  • Skor bards (or whatever favourite chocolate bar you prefer)

Spread the cream cheese over a plate. Then pour the caramel sauce all over the cream cheese. Hammer the skor bar into small bits and sprinkle over top of the caramel and cream cheese mixture. Cut up the apples and serve. YUM!

Tips

When giving an apple crisp away, bake in a tin foil pie plate or baking dish (you can typically get these from the dollar store).  Add some caramels to create a fall fair flavour. Serve warm with some vanilla ice cream.
