"I clipped this recipe from our local paper a few years ago," recalls Maxine Smith from Owanka, South Dakota. "It's a tasty lunch treat for hearty appetites. Plan on doubling the recipe for hungry grandkids," she adds.
Looking for a standout appetizer that could double as a dessert? Try this fast, no-fuss favorite that Darlene Brenden whips up for family and friends in Salem, Oregon. “It’s a fun change of pace for your munchies menu and an easy way to get folks to snack on apples instead of junk food,” Darlene points out.
My kids just loved helping put the marshmallow "teeth" between the apple slices when I made these years ago. I usually made them with red apples but green apples would be a playful alternative. —Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario
Is there a kid alive (or a kid at heart) who wouldn’t gobble up this creamy dip for graham crackers? It beats dunking them in milk, hands down! You can also try it with apple wedges.

Tailgaters love to munch, so this crunchy snack mix is perfect for a pre-game spread. "Everyone who has tried it likes it," says Lucile Cline of Wichita, Kansas. A retired Extension home economist, Lucile won a ribbon at the state fair with this recipe.
Great for a party or game-day gathering, this hearty appetizer can be made with Italian sausage instead of ground beef if you prefer. Add a little more pizza sauce if the mixture seems too thick. —Margaret Schissler, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
