2 medium apples, peeled
½ cup peanut butter
2 cups good quality, semi-sweet chocolate, broken to pieces
Sprinkles for topping
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut each apple into 4 or 5 even slices, about 1/2 inch thick. Using an apple corer, core each slice individually making a perfect circle in the center of the apple slices. Dry each slice off as much as possible using a paper towel.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in 30-second intervals in the microwave until completely melted.
Spread a layer of peanut butter (about 2 tablespoons) on the top of each apple.
Carefully and quickly dip each peanut butter topped apple slice in the chocolate to coat completely. Drain off excess and then place on parchment paper. Continue with remaining apples. Top each ‘doughnut’ with sprinkles of choice and refrigerate until firm- 15 minutes. Eat immediately.
Yields 8-10 ‘doughnuts’
