Prep Time: 20 minutes + 10 minutes to chill
Makes 6-7 wreath snacks, depending on size of apple
These sliced apples are a festive, fresh snack for the family to make and enjoy during the holidays. When assembled, they look like holiday wreaths adorned with red, jewel-like cherries and green pepitas or pistachios. For an added touch, tie narrow red ribbons around each wreath to make them just a little more merry. These are best eaten once freshly made.
*To use chocolate instead of almond butter, place ¾ cup milk or dark chocolate chips in a medium-size microwavable bowl. Microwave in three 30-second intervals, stirring each time with a rubber spatula until smooth. Spread the chocolate onto the apples the same way as the spiced almond butter. Top with the granola, dried cherries, pink peppercorns and flake salt. Place in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to firm up. Serve.
