Reviews for Apple Cartwheels
"I did soak the apples in lemon juice, then sliced them before adding the filling. Yummy."
"I made this dish for my son as an afternoon snack and he loved it. I will say, however, I need to add an apple corer to my kitchen supply...was a little hard w/o it."
"Really easy and really good! I've also made with granola in place of the choc chips and raisins. For a class treat where I couldn't use peanut butter because of allergies, I used melted caramel and granola."
"My crew are not into raisins so I replaced them with sunflower seeds, they like the extra crunch too. Also awesome idea for appetizers. Thanks"
"super yummy snack. It was a great hit with the kids and the adults."
"My children get so excited when they get home from school and see that I have made these for them."
"A great snack for the entire family. I like to make up a batch of the filling on hand so I can make these for my kids at a moment's notice."
"Oh! Almost forgot...I'd be interested in hearing how the nutella in place of peanut butter turned out -- or any other PB substitutes. No peanut products allowed in granddaughter's school."
"Quite tasty! Marcia, perhaps you didn't chill them long enough? Mine sliced fine. A light brushing with lemon juice also keeps the apples from turning brown."
"It was good but when I sliced the the filling just fell out. It was frustrating and we ended up smearing it on the slices which was a mess."
"You use an apple corer to remove the core. They are available in any store that sells cooking supplies.This is a wonderful treat for kids after school snacks. But, these are good for adults too."
"there is no instruction on how to get the apple scooped out? what is the trick?"
"Looks like a great recipe that I will try immediately! I will also try them using Nutella instead of the peanut butter."
"Dip the apple slices in a citrus soda like Sprite or 7-Up and they won't turn brown."
"I made these today and they are yummy. My husband and I both enjoyed them. Will definitely make them again. So easy!"
"How do you keep the apple rings from turning brown? Sweetcs"
"Oooh...my daughter just started kindergarten and these look terrific. I'll just use almond butter in place of the peanut butter. Can't wait to try this!"
"OMG! I am not normally one to comment even if I liked it, but these are soooo good! I love the chocolate with the peanut butter and apple! yummy!"
