Baked Apples with Peanut Butter, Honey & a hint of Chocolate are Yummy

baked apples Logan helped me use up the apples that are fresh in season & ready for the pickin’ right in the produce aisles at Price Chopper to bake up my Magic Apple Recipe. It’s a twist on an oldie, but goodie I learned how to make using an apple & a marshmallow when I was in girl scouts, but when I became a mom, I swapped out the marshmallow for a few other key ingredients in the center & voila, a snack favorite was born.  Now we fill our center with peanut butter, honey, cinnamon & cocoa powder = YUM!

Check this recipe out, I know Logan gave it a ‘thumbs up’.

Magic Apple Recipe by Jodie Fitz

1 apple

1/4 teaspoon Price Chopper cocoa powder

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Using an apple slicer/corer, cut the apple 80% to the bottom.  Remove the apple slicer/corer and carefully cut or spoon the core from the center of the apple.  The goal is to keep the bottom of the apple intact so that you have a hollowed center that you can fill.

Stir the peanut butter, honey, cinnamon & cocoa powder together.  Fill the center of the apple with the peanut butter mixture.  Wrap the apple in foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Let the apple cool just enough to peel the wedges covered in peanut butter and eat them or scoop out the apple and eat it with a spoon while it’s hot.

Cocoa Powder:  You can also substitute the cocoa powder and honey with 1 tablespoon of mini dark chocolate morsels.

Cutting the Apple: I often lay two wooden spoons on either side of the apple so that when I push the apple slicer/corer down, it stops before going all of the way to the cutting board. [googleplusauthor]

  1. I will have to keep my eye out for one of those apple slicer/corers. I like the sound of using real chocolate, and I am curious about using marshmallow too 🙂 I can’t remember making any thing like that in my girl scouts!

    1. If you can’t find them in your local kitchen store/department store, you can always order them on line. They are almost always under $10 in the states…
