Great for potlucks, this really has the "familiar" taste of taffy apples!
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks (in juice)
2 cups tiny marshmallows
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 egg, beaten
6 to 7 red and green apples, peeled, cored and cubed
8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
10 ounces maraschino cherries, drain and halve
1 cup peanuts, (no skins)
Drain pineapple and reserve juice. In a large bowl, stir pineapple chunks and marshmallows. Cover and chill 24 hours.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine the sugar and flour. Add pineapple juice, vinegar and egg. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until mixture bubbles; reduce heat and cook for 2 more minutes. Transfer to a small bowl, cover the surface of mixture with plastic wrap and chill.
To serve: In a large bowl, combine the apples, desert topping, cherries, peanuts with the marshmallow mixture and chilled dressing. Tastes like a real taffy apple!
