Enjoy a healthy Lil Snappers apple with a kid-size serving for one scoop of ice cream and a cookie for an extra special treat. What could be more fun than an edible ice cream cup?


  • 1 Lil Snappers apple
  • 1 scoop vanilla bean ice cream
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of granulated sugar
  • 2 to 3 oatmeal animal cookies (optional)
  • Candy sprinkles (optional)


  1. Slice off top quarter section of apple (stem tip); reserve for snacking. Using a small teaspoon or grapefruit spoon, carefully core out center of apple (working outward from centermost part of fruit), leaving a generous 1/4-inch outer edge of “cup.” Lightly sprinkle inner cavity of “cup” with a pinch each of cinnamon and sugar.
  2. Place one scoop of ice cream atop apple, pressing down slightly to secure. Top with some sprinkles and an animal cookie. Serve immediately.

Note: Stemilt’s Lil Snappers apples fit nicely in cupcake holders, making for a fun, colorful, kid-friendly presentation.
