Dipped Peanut Butter Filled Apple

Friday, October 05, 2012
I stumbled upon this idea for diping apple slices via pinterest.  The original site is here.  I changed it up a bit based on my culinary preference (ha....I just wanted to use a big word).  Basically, I think adding peanut butter to any and every fruit should probably be added to the constitution.  Which is probably why my name won't be written on too many ballots this election year, but.....let's get to the point of this post.  Dessert.
I love dipped apples, I've made them every which way from mini to stuffed, but this one was a fun one.  I will say, if given the choice, I don't like to use baking chips.  They are made to melt at a higher degree so they maintain their shape in cookies etc, melting chocolates would have been ideal, but I was actually just working with what I had....apple, pb, sprinkles, sticks, and chocolate chips.
 The original post left the innards and the stem on, which was cute, but I decided to carve out the center and fill it with peanut butter so the whole thing was edible, well, almost....unless you are into nawing on popsicles sticks, and if you are....there is a show for someone like you. 
 Ta da.  One medium apple only makes about three of these.  If you aren't eating them right away, I'd run the apple through some sprite or 7-up to keep it from browning before dipping...then letting it dry a little.  If you do using the baking chocolate, add a teaspoon or so of oil to help not look so lumpy.  But....oh my, these were good.
