Easy Healthy Afterschool Snack: Apple Nachos (aka Fairy Bites)

Have you heard? Fairy Toast is sweeping the internet. A classic Australian party snack, these slices of toast, topped with butter and sprinkles is typically served at birthday parties. But we thought it was a delicious enough combo to enjoy everyday!

Instead of toast, however, we swapped in apples. Because an apple a day, plus, adding fruit to your afterschool snack is a great way to sneak more nutritious food into your kids’ day. Check out the video below and see how easy this fun treat is to make. Then, grab an apple, pull out an apple wedger, and prepare for afterschool fun. Because really, everyday should be a party. 

Fun Flavor Twists

Enjoy this recipe as written below. Or try these easy upgrades:

  • Cookie Bites. Instead of sprinkles, top apples with crushed cookies. Oreos or chocolate chip cookies are a delicious addition!
  • Treat Toppers. Swap out the sprinkles in this recipe for chopped candy bars. A great way to use up leftover Halloween goodies!
  • Get Creative.  Check out all of the option in the peanut butter aisle–most taste great with apples. From cookie butter to chocolate-almond spread, try all sorts of flavor combos!
