Another experiment with an old recipe that children are taught in school. So we'll need 10 small apples. Fuji is the best for this recipe.

Get your knife skills on. Pls be careful when you're peeling the apple, we want to use the peel for decoration. Use a sharp knife and try to get as close to the skin as possible.

Keep going and going and going. Never mind if it breaks. We still have another 9 apples to peel lol.

See even I jinxed myself. Just keep peeling and try again.

Using your core removing tool. If anyone can tell me the official name that'd be great. For now it's my coring thing. We did tell you this is an amateur kitchen right?

Poke and twist to about an 2-3 cm diameter and don't go through the bottom. As deep as you can but no holes. It depends on your apple.

So we should have something like this. This is actually a super easy recipe. Don't be disheartened if your peeling and prodding is not perfect. It's all going to be eaten anyway. :)

Put them in icy water while you prepare your jelly crystals.

Try your hand at making some apple peel petals and sing songs from the Cinderella soundtrack.

We need 1 set of red and 1 of green. We only used 1 tablespoon of each jelly and 1/2 teaspoon of the coloring. It's entirely up to you. It's just to replace the sugar.

12
Image for Step 12

Get your red ingredients and boil 5 apples. Boil just for a few minutes. You will know when to turn off your stove when it bubbles and almost overflowing. If you want soft apples boil for 5 mins.

13

Take them out with a straining spoon (thank you Karrie for telling me the name)

14
Image for Step 14

Do the same with the green ingredients

15
Image for Step 15

Boil and remove and we should have something like this..

16
Image for Step 16

Did Christmas just come early? Not far now but you can sprinkle with cinnamon sugar at this point if you like but it's not part of this recipe.

17
Image for Step 17

Set them up how you want to display them for serving. The next part is messy and the apples are now quite fragile so we don't want to move them around so much.

18
Image for Step 18

Just a cup of whipping cream (200ml) is more than enough.

19
Image for Step 19

Using the electric mixer, mix it all up until its firm. So how do we test if the cream is firm??

20
Image for Step 20

Nope not this way. This test is not good enough. How do we test if the cream is firm?

21
Image for Step 21

If you end up wearing the cream.. You didn't beat it enough. And I promise you there's cream inside that bowl! Lol. Bless her, 70 and still fooling around. Lets Get back to it. We're almost done.

22
Image for Step 22

Did you wash your hands? Great! So fill the apples with a teaspoon of whipped cream.

23
Image for Step 23

And this is what you should end up with. And this is it. Done! Put it in the fridge and serve anytime. The next step is not part of this recipe but I wanted to play. Let's continue

24
Image for Step 24

10-15 grams of Copha (vegetable hardening or shortening)

25
Image for Step 25

50 grams of white chocolate. Or any chocolate you like. Gently melt the two together until there are no more chunks of chocolate.

26
Image for Step 26

See that shine. This is what Copha does. It's also used to harden the chocolate after its been melted. Let it cool down a bit first. We want it to be almost reforming.

27
Image for Step 27

Drizzle it over the top so it covers the cream and the apple. If you use hot melted chocolate you'll end up with runny cream. Garnish with fresh mint leave or a hazelnut. in my case I had cherries.
