HOW DO I KEEP APPLES FROM TURNING BROWN? While brown apples taste the same, it doesn’t look good. Everyone balks at eating brown apples. To keep your apples from turning brown, you want to put lemon juice on them. Squeeze the lemon juice over the apples to prevent them from browning.

Wash and core the apples. Thinly slice the apples into rings using a very sharp knife or mandolin. If you are using a slicer, you want it set to the 3rd thickness setting.

Place the slices onto a platter or plate and squeeze the lemon juice over the apples to prevent them from browning.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chips in the microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time on the lowest setting. You want to make sure you do not burn the chips. Stir and do it again until the chips are melted. 

Drizzle the chocolate with a spoon over the apple slices. Heat the peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 10-15 seconds so that it loosens. Then drizzle it over the apple slices with a spoon. Evenly sprinkle the coconut flakes and chopped peanuts over the apple slices, and serve immediately.
