Beautiful green apples dipped in melted marshmallows, then chocolate, and finished off with a sprinkle of ground graham crackers.
It’s official, guys. Fall is here.
Yesterday I worked on organizing my closet, preparing for the following months – boots, light sweaters, heavy sweaters, yoga pants, more yoga pants, jeans, and more jeans. Which reminds me…I need to go and get another pair to add to the 20 pairs that I already have… and only wear about 3 of those pairs.
Oh, puhlease! You probably have 38 pairs and do the same.
After my dress-up episode, I celebrated the first day of Fall with this Skillet Apple Berry Pie (SO!GOOD!) and the last of these S’Mores Apples.
I am SO NOT a Taffy Apple girl. I mean, it’s cool to have like half of one, but then I’m done. However, that lasted only up until I grew up and started to make my own variations. You know what’s really, really good? My Taffy Apple Shortbread Bars. Goodness gracious, they are awesome! But, so are these apples! They are, just, WOW! They transformed me!
I went from not into the whole sweet, gooey apple thing (unless it was a pie) to an obsessed fan! I have to be honest with you – these are my new obsession. How can they not be?! We’re talking about all the S’Mores goodness around a delicious Granny Smith. Can you taste it? Delish, right?! I knooooow!
I made a lot of these last week. And I thought they really were a lot until we bit into them. Swear, my husband and I had 6, each. My poor kids… the S’Mores Apples were meant for them, but that didn’t happen. Dad and I inhaled ’em. I had to make another batch the other day to make it up to them. These things happen. It’s all good. I don’t mind whipping up a few more. Trust me. 🙂
You should also trust me when I say that these need to make it near your face, soon.
