  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Slice apples in half from top to bottom and scoop out the cores using a knife or melon baller. If you have an apple corer, core them first, then slice. Place each apple half flat side down on a small plate.
  2. Dab peanut butter on to the back of the 'lady bug', then stick raisins onto the dabs for spots. Use this method to make eyes too. Stick one end of each pretzel stick into a raisin, then press the other end into the apples to make antennae.

Too Cute! I'm an admitted peanut butter addict and peanut butter and apples to me go together peanut butter and jelly! My niece went crazy for this! It's an easy, quick, inexpensive...

My kids had fun making these today. TIP: I soaked my halved apples in a combination of lemon juice and water. Kept them from browning.

I included Cheerios, and Marshmellows, to decorate with. I also used strawberry cream cheese for those not able to have peanut butter. The summer park program (ages 3-12) loved these.

Very cute recipe that I put into my roommates' bento lunches. The only downside to this is that you can't refrigerate them. The pretzels get soggy form the apples and break, also the apples brow...

I made this recipe, and I think where you scooped out the core you can fill it in with peanut butter. Also if you don't have petzels colored tooth picks are always fun, they are not edible but t...

Great idea! I made mine with dried cranberries and raisin and with strawberry cream cheese instead of peanut butter for allergy reason and paired it with Ants on a Log and the kids loved it!

i loved it....easy to make, quick and healthy n yummy. perfect afterschool snack

Very cute recipe. I used natural peanut butter, which at room temperature can be a bit runny. So refrigerating the peanut butter might be a good idea. I also had a hard time getting the pretz...
