Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Slice apples in half from top to bottom and scoop out the cores using a knife or melon baller. If you have an apple corer, core them first, then slice. Place each apple half flat side down on a small plate.
  2. Dab peanut butter on to the back of the 'lady bug', then stick raisins onto the dabs for spots. Use this method to make eyes too. Stick one end of each pretzel stick into a raisin, then press the other end into the apples to make antennae.

Too Cute! I'm an admitted peanut butter addict and peanut butter and apples to me go together well....like peanut butter and jelly! My niece went crazy for this! It's an easy, quick, inexpensive, healthy and delicious snack that I felt good about giving her. Plus it was really fun to make! I think you could even substitute chocolate chips for the ladybug spots and eyes because we all know how good chocolate and peanut butter taste!

I spread cut side of apple with peanut butter(to prevent browning) and serve on a lettuce leaf which keeps PB off fingers. This would be a great after-school treat or a cute side "salad" for a meal. A platter of these each on it's own lettuce leaf would be a nice center-piece for a kids party.

My kids had fun making these today. TIP: I soaked my halved apples in a combination of lemon juice and water. Kept them from browning.
