- 1 Large Apple
- More Apples for Slicing
- 8 oz Cream Cheese
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
- Green Food Coloring
- 1 Egg White
- Red Sanding sugar
- 1 Small Tootsie Roll
- 1 Green Gummi Slice
- POISONOUS DIP
- With a hand mixer; mix cream cheese until creamy. Then add brown sugar, honey and vanilla. Beat until mixture is smooth. Add green food coloring to give it that poisonous look.
- SHIMMERING FAIRY TALE APPLE
- Cut off the top quarter of the apple. Use a melon baller to carefully hollow out the inside of the top and bottom of the apple. Whisk one egg white in a bowl and brush it onto the surface of the top and bottom apple pieces. Roll the apple pieces in red sanding sugar to coat them.
- MAKE A STEM
- Roll a Tootsie Roll between your hands to soften it. Roll it around a toothpick and shape it like an apple stem. Leave the bottom 1/2-inch for inserting into the apple top. Insert another toothpick into the green gummy slice. Leave a 1/2-inch for inserting into the apple top. Stick both pieces into the top of the apple. Allow them both to dry on a wire baking rack. When the apple surfaces are dry, fill the hollow apple bottom with the "poisonous" dip. Slice up the other apples for dipping.
