Apple Boats

September 08, 1998

Three food groups are covered with these high-protein snacks.

- 6 green apples

- 1 cup peanut butter, chunky-style preferred

- 1/2 cup peanuts, chopped

- 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal

- 1/4 cup raisins

- cheddar cheese

Cut apples in half and remove cores, leaving hollows for the peanut butter mixture. Mix peanut butter with peanuts, crispy rice cereal and raisins. Spoon into prepared apples. Cut into slices. Make sails with triangles of cheese.


Variation: Substitute shredded or chopped carrots for raisins.
