💡 Expert Tips

Some people do not like the fact that roses get out of the oven darker and the apples lose their color, which is obviously natural. This did not bother me, but if this is your case, you might want to loosely cover the muffin tin with foil to help reduce that.

  • If you do not have a microwave you can bake the apple slices in the oven. Mix apple slices with lemon juice and spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake on 350F for 10-12 minutes or until tender and pliable. Wait for them to cool down before proceeding with the recipe.
  • It is always a good idea to butter your muffing tin before placing the roses in so they will not stick especially when the sugar caramelizes.
  • Another idea is to line the muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  • I’ve found that 4 parts makes big roses which is something me and my husband appreciated but was hard for the little ones to bite into. So you might want to cut it into 6 parts if you want to make them smaller.
  • If you are left with some remaining sugar mixture you can sprinkle them on top of the roses for a more crunch. If you do so make sure to use cupcake liners though.
  • For a total of 8 roses I’ve used two medium red delicious apples.
