Li'l Lips Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 medium red apple
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Miniature marshmallows, optional


  • 1. Cut apple into 16 wedges; toss with lemon juice.
  • 2. In a small bowl, mix peanut butter, cream cheese and cinnamon until blended. Spread about 2 teaspoons onto one side of half of the apple slices; top each with a second slice, pressing to form lips. If desired, press marshmallows onto peanut butter for teeth. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 8 servings.

"I'm making these as a treat for the Valentines Day Party next Wednesday..most will be with the peanut butter and red or green apples but,I have found an alternative solution to Peanut Butter (several children have allergies).Biscoff spread is made with wheat and soy cookies ground into paste,it tastes good so it will work fine. I think this will be a hit with all"
