  • 1 apple cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon caramel sauce
  • 2 tablespoons maple whipped cream
  • 1 teaspoon chopped nuts optional
  • 1 marashino cherry


  1. Place the apple slices in a circle on a serving dish. If you use an apple slicer (the kind that cuts it into wedges and removes the core), you can slice it right on the plate, remove the core and proceed.
  2. Drizzle the caramel sauce around the crown. Place the whipped cream in the center.
  3. Sprinkle the nuts over all.
  4. Top with a cherry.

Recipe Notes

The original recipe includes chopped nuts. These, of course are optional. You can use dried cranberries, raisins or sunflower seeds if you want a nut-free alternative for topping.
