    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

    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.
