Peanut butter, chocolate Apple camping treat

So when I was in Girl Scouts as a kid we would make these apple treats that lasted days as they didn’t have to be refridgerated. As I was hiking over the weekend (and getting engaged!!!!) I remembered these some and made some for our hike. They preserved greatly, were easy to carry, light weight and the protein in the peanut butter is a great source of protein to keep you going. And your only waste to carry back is a light piece of foil!

Ingredients:
Apples
Peanut butter
Chocolate spread (we used Hershey’s – we also have a ‘natural’ chocolate peanut butter at home that would’ve been good too)
Knife
Foil

Steps:
1. Cut the apple in half down the ‘core’.
2. Cut out the seeds and cut out a pocket along the ‘core’ for room for the PB and chocolate.

Pockets cut out on both sides of the apple where the 'core' is.

3. Fill the pocket with PB and chocolate spread. I also spread some along the whole apple inside (a thin amount).

4. Put the apple back together and cover in foil. That’s it!

This is also great because they are quick to make and having two halves makes it easy to share or bite into while walking if you don’t want to stop. I also love chocolate and it was nice to have some and not have to worry about it getting smushed or melting.
