Apple Cartwheels & Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

Here's the combination that made one of the biggest "splashes" in my kids' cooking class. The children enjoyed the adapted recipe (I won't use peanut butter with children because of nut allergy threats) and said it was "the best thing ever." 

Apple Cartwheels

  1. Wash and core Granny Smith or Red and Golden Delicious apples (an apple corer is a wonderful thing)
  2. Mix together: chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, honey, cream cheese and raisins or craisins
  3. Pile the filling into the holes in the apples, letting it pop out the top a bit
  4. Turn apple onto its side and (adults) cut into thick slices 
  5. Alternate apples on a plate or platter for children to enjoy (and they will!)
Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
  1. Cut small flour tortillas into 8 slices per tortilla
  2. Brush with melted butter and liberally sprinkle on a mixture of cinnamon and sugar
  3. Heat in 350 degree oven until bubbly - about 5-10 minutes. Watch carefully for scorching
Remove and serve with Apple Cartwheels or Fruit Salsa. Yum!
