But it will be in the 90s here in so. Illinois today.
Normally I love to bake something apple or pumpkin flavored to celebrate my favorite season, but not today.
I decided to share a COLD favorite from the past on this mid-summer-feeling autumn day.
This treat is great anytime of the year, and it is a nice lighter addition to your dessert table which will balance nicely against all the heavy sweets as the holidays approach. This is not necessarily a diet friendly recipe, but it is not rich or heavy. Tastes very similar to a taffy apple.
*This needs to chill thoroughly for best flavor overnight in the fridge, however it is still good chilled for just a few hours if you're like me and can't wait!
YOU WILL NEED:
1/2 cup sugar
1 T. cornstarch
2 T. lemon juice
1 cup pineapple chunks (drain- save juice)
1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip (you can use the lite version- both are good)
2 med. red apples
2 med. green apples
2 cup mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cup salted peanuts
In pan, heat sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, egg and juice from pineapple until thick after boiling (about 5 minutes).
In Large bowl, combine all other ingredients. Toss lightly. Refrigerate overnight (or at least several hours).
Yes, He does.
