Donut-Shaped Apple Snacks

I'm in love with these apple treats, great for the kids or even adults. Drizzled with anything that strikes your fancy, here I did a variation with PB and chocolate as well as some with just chocolate.

3 to 4 tart green apples
1/4 cup melted milk chocolate*
1/4 cup melted peanut butter or 1/4 cup melted white chocolate*
optional toppings: sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, toasted coconut, craisins, nuts, granola

To melt chocolate, in a small bowl microwave 30 seconds, stir, repeat until melted. To melt peanut butter, microwave in a small bowl 30 seconds. Transfer to ziplock bags if you wish for easier piping, or you can use a spatula or spoon to drizzle it over the apples. Slice the apples into 12 1/4-inch thick slices. Using a 1-inch round cookie cutter, core the apple slices (or you can use a knife). Place the apple slices on wax paper and drizzle with your favorite toppings. Eat right away.
