Servings: 1

Prep Time: 10 min.


  • 2 tbsp. dulce de leche (Nestle la Lechera Dulce de Leche)
  • 1 golden delicious apple
  • 2 currants
  • 1 red grape, halved lengthwise


  • Small plastic resealable bag


  1. Step 1

    Spoon the dulce de leche into a plastic resealable bag. Seal the bag.

  2. Step 2

    Cut the apple in half lengthwise. Core the apple. Cut two 1-inch circles from the other half of the apple. And cut three small triangles for Rintoo's fur. Cut a 2-inch wedge from the round side of the cored apple half as the mouth. Cut a small "u" shape for the tongue from the scraps.

  3. Step 3

    Place the apple half on a serving plate. Arrange the apple ears and fur at the top and sides of apple.

  4. Step 4

    Snip a small corner from the bag with the dulce de leche. Pipe several stripes along the sides, ears, and top of the Rintoo apple. Pipe a nose and two dots to secure the currants as the eyes with the dulce de leche. Place a grape half in the opening for the mouth and add the "u" shaped apple piece for the tongue.
