Apples and Peanutbuttery Caramel Dip

Ok we are going to share another one of our favorite snacks. This recipe is from the Cooking Rocks! Rachel Ray 30-minute Meals for Kids cookbook. This is a great way to start getting the kids involved in the kitchen. If you have kids that are interested in cooking, or if you are trying to get them interested this cookbook is a good place to start. It breaks down recipes by age group, and has kids enlist help from their "GH" or Grown-up Helper. (Not all the recipes are snacks...there are many entrees as well.)

Fuji Apples and Peanutbuttery Caramel Dip
24 wrapped caramel candies (such as kraft, you can also find these in bulk sometimes at the store.)
2 Apples Sliced (Rachel Ray suggests Fuji, but choose your favorite)
1 T water
2 T creamy peanut butter (although we do prefer crunchy)
pinch of cinnamon (Rachel refers to this as the secret ingredient)
Unwrap the candies and place in a microwaveable bowl, than add 1 tablespoon water and the 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Place bowl in the microwave oven and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir up the dip with a rubber spatula. If the candy is not melted all the way put it back in the microwave on high for another 20 seconds. Add a pinch of cinnamon to the sauce and stir.

Dip apples in sauce and enjoy. To reheat place it back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Enjoy.
