Fun Apple Treats

Pin It Now!
We went apple picking last weekend, so to celebrate (and because we now have 20 pounds of apples), I thought I would post some  apple snack ideas. There are so many fun ways to jazz up apple slices, we tried nut butter, cinnamon sugar, mini-chocolate chips and homemade caramel dip. The kids loved them all! My personal favorite is the caramel dip, but the kids loved every kind. Cinnamon sugar sprinkled apples sounds like a lunch-box favorite in the making!
