Apple Roses

  • 2 medium red apples Red Delicious recommended
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar


  • 1 box brownie mix or homemade
  • Ingredients called for on the mix box
  • powdered sugar optional for serving


Apple Roses

  • Using a sharp paring knife, slice the apple halves lengthwise to 1/8-inch thick pieces.
  • In a large microwaveable bowl, add apple slices and lemon juice, mixing well.
  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and melted butter together. Then add to the apple slices, stirring to coat.
  • Microwave for about 2 minutes or until the apple slices are pliable. Strain out any accumulated liquid.
  • Arrange about 5-6 apple slices in a straight row with an inch of overlap on each. Starting with one end, gently roll the slices together to make a rose.
  • Repeat previous step to make 10-11 more roses.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking oil, and set aside.
  • Fill each muffin tin 1/3 full if using brownie mix, or 2/3 full if using home made batter.
  • Place one apple rose in the middle of each brownie until it is half immersed.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until brownies are cooked through.
  • Remove from oven and dust with optional powdered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
