There’s a worm in my apple!

My four year old is going to flip over these! A gummy worm and peanut butter filled apple!

I’ve copied the recipe below but here’s a link to the original:

Use up that bounty of autumn apples with this easy, kid-friendly snack. Parents will have to do the most of the cutting, but kids will enjoy helping fill the apple with peanut butter, and placing their gummy worms in just-the-right spot.

1 apple
1 gummy worm
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 large straw (I used a thick, Boba tea straw and a Slurpee straw and both worked perfectly)

Press the straw into the apple, ensuring that it goes all the way to the center core of the apple. Remove the straw and discard. Use a sharp knife to cut the top 1/3 off of the apple.

Scrape the core out of the bottom part of the apple with a grapefruit spoon.

Gently place your gummy worm into the center of your apple, and through the hole you’ve created with your straw.

Spoon a dollop of peanut butter on top of the gummy worm, into the hollowed-out center of the apple.

Replace the top of the apple. Serve immediately & enjoy!”

    That is such a cute little snack! and it’s awfully good to have that protein in there!
    I used to make “dirt and worm” sundaes with chocolate ice cream, crushed dark cookie crumbs and gummy worms. Not quite as healthy, but still pretty awesome 🙂

  2. Such a cute idea! I only remember the “worms in dirt” dessert from my childhood, but this sounds like a slightly healthier worm food. :]
