This weekend I am working on a calendar project writing and photographing recipes for the National Celiac Support Association. I am a volunteer recipe consultant for them. I had an idea for August with picnics. I transferred this idea to creating an apple salad for fall. This was on a whim. The more I say I am a terrible baker, I realize I keep making more sweets. Here is a recipe for something that happened on a whim.

Apple Salad Snacks


1 box Joy gluten-free ice cream cones

2 gala apples

1 cup of Kraft caramel bits

1 cup of peanuts

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1/4 cup coconut

Melt 1/2 cup caramel bits in microwave safe bowl. Spread on the outside rim of the ice cream cones. Sprinkle with coconut.

Mix apples, caramel, peanuts, milk chocolate chips, and coconut.  Pour into ice cream cones.

Tip: If I had a bonfire or grill, I would wrap them in aluminum foil to melt everything together. Yum.
