PB&T Apple Wafers

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lil Snappers Apple
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp toffee bits (found in the baking aisle), placed in a shallow bowl

Directions:PB&T Apple Wafers

  1. Place apple on cutting board, stem up. Cut a thin slice from each side of the apple to reveal a flat edge (knife should be parallel to core). Using a toothpick or knife, mark three, roughly equal width slices (aproximately 1/4” inch or less) from this outer side of the apple into center (on both sides of core). Slice down, vertically at each of these three points to get three “rounds” of apple off of each side of core. These coreless wafers will serve at the tops and bottoms of each wafer “cookie.”
  2. To assemble, match similar size slices from each side together. Place approximately 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on one slice of each pairing and spread slightly to edge. Top with coordinating slice of apple and gently press two wafers together so that peanut butter oozes out just a bit around the edge. Gently roll peanut butter-exposed edge in toffee bits. Repeat with remaining wafers. Serve immediately

Note: Colorful cupcake holders make a great “dish” for these playful wafers.
