A New Fun Dessert For Thanksgiving With A Twist!
These little parfaits are delicious and perfect. Sweet enough for dessert, but in actuality healthy enough to call a snack, and the upright shape is quirky and fun!
To make the parfaits, cut the tops off your apples, and set aside. You can dust them with a little edible glitter or luster dust, if desired, for that extra eye-catching effect.
Caramel Apple Parfaits
4 medium sized apples
6 oz Yoplait Light Apple Turnover Yogurt
2 individual packs (2 bars each) Oats 'n Honey Granola Bars, break into crumbs
¼ c. caramel sauce (any prepared caramel sauce or ice cream topping)
Water, lemons, if desired
Cake decorating glitter, if desired
Cut tops off apples, and dust with the edible glitter or luster dust (if using) and set aside.
Crumble the granola bars and mix with the caramel sauce and set aside.
Slice each apple into 3 horizontal slices. Keep the slices from each individual apple grouped together for orderly parfaits.
Squeeze 2 lemons into about 3 cups of water, and dip the slices (not the glittery apple top though) into the lemon water to inhibit browning. Pat dry with paper towel.
Layer the yogurt, granola sauce between the apple slices.
Top each apple parfait with its glittery topper.
