2 tsp. cornstarch

1 1/2 cups finely chopped Granny Smith apples

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1 packet natural no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

Dash salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-large microwave-safe bowl, combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup water, and stir to dissolve. Add apples, cinnamon, vanilla extract, sweetener, and salt. Gently stir.

Microwave for 2 1/2 minutes, or until apples have softened, and mixture is thick and gooey.

Place shells on a baking sheet, and bake until lightly browned and crispy, 3 - 5 minutes.

Evenly distribute apple mixture among the baked shells.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave caramel dip for 15 seconds, or until hot.

Drizzle caramel over the shells, and top with peanuts.
