Apple roses have taken over TikTok as the latest easy-to-make snack.

The pretty dessert is easy to make as it requires only five ingredients to whip up.

One of the first people to make apple roses if the foodie Mon Mack, who shared her simple recipe with her 211,000 TikTok followers in a now-viral video.

“This is one of the earlier videos I made on this page and I just had to go back to it because it’s so much fun – it’s an apple rose and it’s super easy to make and taste just like apple pie,” she said in the clip.

The five ingredients she used are; apple, puff pastry, cinnamon sugar and vanilla.

Other users that have made the dish follow the same recipe with a few spicing it up by adding some water and lemon juice to the apple slices before putting it in the microwave.

Mack began her dessert by thinly slicing the apples then popping them in the microwave for a few seconds until they become ‘nice and soft’.

She then sprinkled one tablespoon of cinnamon, sugar and vanilla on top of the apples and mixed them together.

“Pop out your puff pastry and start laying out your apples,” Mack said.

“Fold over the edges, roll it into a rose and then pop it into a baking tray and bake for 25 minutes.”

The apple roses were then dusted with icing sugar and looked like the perfect afternoon treat.

The apple roses tag has over 300 000 views on TikTok since more users have recreated the snack.

Here is Mack’s full recipe: 

All you need is the following to make 4 tarts:
2 medium apples
½ sheet puff pastry
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp cinnamon

Once you roll them, bake them in a 180C oven for approx 25 mins or until the pastry is cooked through. One tip is to not roll them too tightly, otherwise, the pastry in the middle will still be raw and you don’t want that.
