Thanks to my friend Peachkins for this cute inspiration! I told son that we were gonna make smiling apples with marshmallows and peanut butter but he had a different idea - he wanted caramel instead!
So I put a little twist in my smiling apples and used
Oh, and here is a link for Peachkin's cute creations!
What you need:
about a cup of marshmallows (regular-sized)
squirts of caramel or butterscotch topping
What to do:
Wash the apple and dry with paper towels. Slice in thin wedges.
Place a wedge of apple on your plate, then squirt a small amount of butterscotch syrup on the side facing you. Immediately line marshmallows on top of the syrup.
Get another wedge of apple and put butterscotch syrup on the bottom side. Place it on top of the marshmallows to resemble a smile.
Continue doing procedure until you run out of ingredients (or patience!).
Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:
1. I used Red Delicious apples because the color resembles human lips. Feel free to use any kind!
2. To avoid apple discoloration, squeeze some fresh lime or lemon juice on them.
3. Use real caramel or peanut butter to make the marshmallows stick.
