I chopped off the top (in retrospect, it would have been cute to pop the top back on as well. I'll remember that for my imaginary party. I also anticipate it might be necessary to chop a small bit off the bottom of the apple for a flat seat, though this guy sat pretty firmly on the counter. I melon balled out the apple, and reserved the pieces in the freezer for a pie sometime. (Don't dig too deep with the melon baller, or the cup will spring a leak. I ran the apple through a sprite bath (lemon would also work). Inserted my cider, added a cinnamon stick, and called myself content.

here. Hello, how precious are apple cups? The process was simple, and a tray of these would be so stinking cute at a party. I'm going to have a party just so I can serve apple cider in an apple. I'm also thinking about starting a blog completely dedicated to apples, and a side of cinnamon b/c I find myself seeking these ingredients far too often, and if I didn't insist on adding butter and sugar everytime I chopped up an apple, it might not be such a bad thing. Anyway, just to amuse myself, here's the quick and easy dish on creating apple cups.
