I gave this recipe some thought and came up with other ideas to use dyed apples...

what a fun thing! colored apple ring necklace! LOL! oh and this is for my 20 year old daughter! she would LOVE LOVE it!

my grandsons would get tickled with them! what a great idea for gifts too. I would make rings and cut into bite size pieces and put on my desk.. if I still worked.. maybe I will do this for my husband's secretary.

oh red and green for Christmas.. neon for Easter.. red, natural and blue for 4th of July.

What fun! thank you so much for posting this.

I will be making these and mailing them off to my grandchildren! I wonder if I can add... those fun glittery sprinkles instead of sugar???? LOL!

oh camo apples? tie dye apples? oh now I know I have lost it.
