  1. Cut apple slices into 1/3 inch-thick slices. With a round small cookie cutter, apple corer, knife, or melon baller, remove the core.
  2. Prepare NatureSeal browning inhibiting solution according to package directions by mixing one packet with 8 ounces of cold water. Transfer liquid into a flat 9×9 baking dish or smaller baking pan. Begin to dip one side of the apples, flip over, and let apples sit for 1 to 5 minutes. Remove apples from the dish, transfer into a zip bag or storage container, and repeat the process with remaining apples.
  3. Melt chocolate and nut butter (or nut-free butter if serving it to other kids with possible food allergies) in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir chocolate chips and transfer them into a zip or piping bag.
  4. Place apple slices onto wax or parchment paper and let the kids drizzle chocolate or nut butter over the apple slices. Top with favorite toppings and enjoy!



Store leftover apple rings in the refrigerator.
