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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
