Just trying to figure out how many apples I would need for DD's class party. 1st graders and it's just part of a snack so there will be other stuff there. They are going to dip them in caramel. So I'm thinking 4 slices per kid?

Anyway, how many slices do you think per apple? I'm not an apple eater, lol.

4 slices is half an apple? That's an entire snack for 1st graders, IMO. I'd figure 2 slices each, especially if you might be competing with sweets, many a first grader will skip your caramel apples for the cupcakes.

PS, could this possibly be a round about way into caramel in a can?

Yeah, I guess 4 per kid might be too much. I thought with the caramel they would eat more. There will be a sweet treat there but not sure what it is as the other mom is making it.

Thanks!

I usually cut an apple into quarters and then each quarter into 3 slices. So I get 12 slices from an apple.

I had a girl scout meeting for my 3rd grade brownies a couple of days ago, and had honeycrisp apples as a snack. I gave each girl 3 slices (so basically a quarter of an apple). It seemed to work out fine for a small snack. We did not have anything to dip them with though.
