More About This Recipe
- Yup, I’m back in the summer movie swing of things, and the release of “Snow White and the Huntsman” has me thinking.Times have certainly changed. In this modern, hyper-communicative world we live in, the Poison Apple Purveyor of old (i.e. the Wicked Queen) would have a much more difficult time of it. An actual poison apple sighting would be tweeted or Facebook-ed immediately and hopefully would deter a possible consumption incident.So I’m thinking that the modern-day poison apple would need some serious upgrades. Like maybe some yogurt and granola, and caramel for sure. Glitter, optional but advisable under the circumstances.Conjecturing aside, these little parfaits are delicious and perfect. Sweet enough for dessert, but in actuality healthy enough to call a snack, and the upright shape is quirky and fun!Funny story about the granola: I found that I forgot to buy the granola … luckily I had Nature Valley Granola Bars on hand! I just popped them in a plastic bag, and crushed them with a rolling pin, and viola! They were perfect in this – very flavorful, and I was able to crush them a little finer than regular granola, so there was some nice blending action with the yogurt and caramel.Top with a sparkly topper and you’re in business. NOT the poison apple business, however. Rather, the yummy little movie inspired parfait business!Hope you enjoy!
