Apple Valentines

IMG_5321As a single girl, Valentine’s Day is often a holiday I choose to forget. However, this Valentine’s Day why not make a sweet, simple, and nutritious snack for yourself! I took one large, red apple and cut it in sheets (start on one end and make sheets about 1/4 inch thick, like you’re cutting an onion). Then, carefully, with a small, sharp knife, carve hearts into the smaller sheets. I cut mine into various sizes and layered them onto one another for more flourish. Arrange the hearts onto the flat, larger sheets and enjoy! Optional: eat with crushed walnuts, almond butter, or dark chocolate chips.

I sent pictures of these tasty apple hearts to all my girlfriends, wishing them a Happy Galentine’s Day (from the show Parks and Recreation). Because really, who needs boys (or girls) when you have apples and good friends? ❤
