Found this keeper in the Family Fun magazine. I loved making it with the kids and they loved being creative. Use your imagination and your favorite toppings for this great snack. You will need a package of lollipop sticks and a melon baller and small paper candy cups (or cupcake paper) for this recipe. One Granny Smith apple makes approximately 8 mini apples.
