There are two steps. The first is to fry up the tostadas and sugar. The next is to prepare the Apple Salsa, which will take some time due to the peeling of apples and dicing.

Ingredients:

Flour tortillas small taco size not burrito size, 2 packages to make 24 tostadas

Vegetable oil; 1 cup

Cinnamon sugar mix 1 cup 2 cups of sugar, and 3 tablespoons cinnamon

6 large red delicious apples; peeled and diced

6 large granny smith apples; peeled and diced

6 golden delicious apples; peeled and diced

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese, room temperature

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons of peanut butter

2 king size snickers bars

1 16 ounce tub kool whip

Tostadas:

Flour tortillas small taco size not burrito size, 2 packages to make 24 tostadas

Vegetable oil enough in frying pan to be able to submerge flour tortillas 1 cup

Cinnamon sugar mix 1 cup 2 cups of sugar, and 3 tablespoons cinnamon

Preheat oil in small fry pan over medium heat

Submerge one flour tortilla into oil fry on one side for 30-45 seconds, turn, fry other side, submerge into oil with a holder: a potato masher works well. Keep tostada in oil until hard. Remove from oil and dust in cinnamon sugar mix. If you use a larger pan, you can fry more than one at a time, however, tostadas should not overlap. You must stand over this and watch. The flour tortillas cook fast and can easily burn.

6 large granny smith apples diced

6 golden delicious apples diced

1 tablespoon lemon juice

In mixing bowl mix cream cheese, peanut butter, and brown sugar.

When ready to serve you can either make them yourself and serve, or leave the apple salsa in a center bowl with sugared tostadas surrounding the bowl for guests to make them themselves.
