Virgin Martini Apples and Gourmet Caramel Apples

Richland Gourmet Apple Contributor/Blogger
After what happened today at work and making it home after rush hour traffic, you need something strong. But remember, you’re trying to watch your weight so you need something fruity on the side.  But you’re in a pickle because you don’t drink alcohol, you’ve got a sweet tooth that only chocolate can fix, and you’ve got reservations with some out of town friends in a few hours?  It needs to be finger-food-ery because you want to soak in a hot tub so that you can pretend what just happened at work – didn’t; and if you could have a wine glass in your hand to make it seem like you’re uber-rich so that you don’t have to go back tomorrow; that would be even better.
Why not have a Virgin Apple Martini with one of our Richland Gourmet Apples?  I mean wouldn’t a large granny smith apple covered in caramel, layered in golden cashews and pecans and drenched in pink triple chocolate be the pre-appetizer to the one you’ll have at the restaurant?  And with an Apple Martini I mean come on – it’s a drink but nonalcoholic.  And the apple is fruit covered in chocolate; plus it’ll take less than 5 minutes to satisfy your craving for something fabulously decadent.  Oh yeah, but what about your spouse?  I mean he does live there too and he’ll probably want to join you.  Crap!  That gourmet apple does sound good but it just doesn’t seem like it can handle both of your giant after-work appetites.
Not to worry! Our plus-sized apples are large enough to share; even though you may not want to. So that luscious chocolate coated granny smith apple with be the only one thing overweight tonight.  No time to Google a Virgin Apple Martini Recipe?  Not a problem.  Since you took time to read our Apple Blog, we took the liberty to find one just for you!  Check out this Virgin Apple Martini Recipe:
