Aug 26 2013 - 11:30am

If you crave crisp apples for an afternoon snack, why not kick it up a notch and nosh on these quick apple snacks, which take mere minutes to prepare? We've included classic pairings, like cheddar cheese, and some that are a bit more novel (Biscoff spread, anyone?). Take a look!

Tahini and Honey

Buttery tahini [1] complements both green and red apples. Depending on how sweet the apples are, try drizzling the combination with clover or honeysuckle honey [2].

Soft Cheeses

Brie and triple cream cheeses spread like butter atop apple wedges.

Biscoff Spread

Be forewarned: Biscoff is the new Nutella, and it's incredibly addictive. The spread, made from the famous cookies, tastes like creamy gingerbread. A jar of this stuff goes fast, particularly when paired with sweet, crunchy Jonagold apples.

Turkey Slices

Turkey and Granny Smith apples are an intriguing sandwich pairing [3]. Between meals, skip the bread and cut the apple in round slices for a solid, cracker-like base.

Cheddar

Cheddar, especially aged varieties like Cabot Clothbound, is a classic pairing with apple. Add baguette for more substantial noshing.

Maple Almond Butter

Almond butter, sweetened with a little maple syrup, is the ultimate Fall dip for apples.
