Apple Smiles Snack Recipe
This is a nice recipe to make in the fall when fresh apples from local orchards are readily available. I’ve made these several times with Cub Scouts and they always enjoy them.
Hopefully I made the instructions clear enough. When assembled, these Apple Smiles should look like two lips (the red sides of the apples) with two teeth (the marshmallows).

Makes 8 Apple Smiles
If you are worried about nut allergies and the peanut butter, use a caramel spread for these Apple Smiles instead. Don’t microwave it before using it as this will make it too thin. Use it at room temperature. Or if you think it needs to be even thicker, refrigerate it beforehand.
