"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."

"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."
