  • 4 small granny smith apples
  • 1 cup mixed dried fruit (without peel)

  2. Using a corer remove the centre (core) of the apple, whilst keeping the rest of the apple intact.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the dried fruit, cinnamon and brown sugar. Mix until well combined.
  4. Stuff the dried fruit mixture into the hole at the centre of each apple. Allow some to sit on top of the apple.
