Apple Poppers Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Today I’ve got a super yummy recipe to share with you guys… Apple Poppers!  Last year my Pumpkin Poppers were a HUGE hit so I thought I’d come up with a new version this year. During fall I’m obsessed with apple treats, and this is definitely one of my family’s favorites.

These are just as delicious and super easy to make too… like mini apple doughnuts made in a mini muffin tin.

Such a yummy fall treat!  My kiddos have been enjoying them all week….. I had to ration them.. they only got 2 a day.  Seriously, if you don’t, they’ll be gone in less than an hour.
