Looking for a fun back-to-school classroom treat? Mix up our Easy Applesauce Muffin batter (or your favorite recipe), then decorate them with natural red frosting, pretzels, and mint leaves to look like apples!

ingredients

• muffin or cupcake batter (Easy Applesauce Muffins or your favorite recipe)
• 1 cup vanilla frosting
• 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
• 12 pretzel sticks
• 12 mint leaves

step-by-step
1. note Prepare the batter according to recipe directions. Line the muffin tin with paper bake cups. Roll aluminum foil into small balls and place each one between a liner and a muffin pan cup (see photo above). Pour the batter into the liners, then bake according to the recipe directions.
2. Meanwhile, mix up some red frosting. To tint a bowl of vanilla frosting, push the fresh raspberries through a strainer so the juice runs into the icing. Stir it up. Then frost your cooled cupcakes.
3. Press a pretzel stick into the top of each cupcake. Add a fresh mint leaf to each apple. Enjoy!
