My 13 year old daughter created a simple and fun snack for the contest.
Apple Flowers Snack
4 apples (we used Fuji apples), sliced thinly
Spread of your choice: strawberry cream cheese peanut butter strawberry jelly
Toppings: coconut, cheese slices, chocolate chips
Let your child cut the apple slices into flower shapes using a cookie cutter.
Spread the slices with peanut butter, cream cheese, jelly or other desired spread.
