  • ½ apple
  • 1 slice thick Canadian cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) puffed rice cereal
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) peanut butter
  • Toothpick

Directions

  1. Cut the apple so the stem is on the bottom and the apple sits flat.
  2. Use a paring knife to cut around the core of the apple. Push out core and discard.
  3. Cut a slice of cheese into a triangle with a butter knife.
  4. Spread peanut butter on the cut side of the apple.
  5. Pour cereal on a small plate. Press the apple with peanut butter side down into the cereal.
  6. Use a toothpick to attach the cheese to the apple.

 

 

Caution for Children Less Than 4 Years Old

Large pieces of apple, thickly spread peanut butter and toothpick are choking risks for children under the age of 4.

For Grown-ups

Serve extra pieces of apple with a selection of cheeses. Try creamy Brie, a sharp aged cheddar, or a tangy blue cheese.  Dip apple slices in water and lemon juice to prevent browning.
