Halloween Idea: Apple Monster Mouths

I thought these apple treats were too fun - and too easy - to pass up!  In a sea of candy and sugar-laden Halloween treats, these are a great little healthy option.  And they'd be super quick to throw together for an after school snack!

If you'll be making these ahead of time or for a party, you can first soak the notched apple pieces in a bowl of water with a couple tablespoons of lemon or orange juice.  Then continue decorating with peanut butter and almond pieces as directed.

Almond slices or slivers
Peanut butter
Mini marshmallows

Core an apple and then cut it into 1/4ths.  Using a small knife, cut a notched section from each apple piece.  Spread the open notch with peanut butter and then press in the almond slices for teeth.  Dot an eyeball onto mini marshmallows using food markers or chocolate syrup.  Poke a toothpick into each marshmallow eyeball and then poke into the top of each apple piece.

Core an apple and then slice it into quarters.

Using a small knife, cut a notch into the side of an apple piece.
And then cut another notch perpendicular to the first notch.
Remove the cut out section and turn apple piece on its side.

Tip:  If your apple slices don't want to stay upright, poke the eyeball toothpicks
all the way through the apple to prop up the slice from the back.

  1. Now I want to run out to buy apples, almonds & marshmallows to make these & have them sitting here for Hubby when he gets home tonight.
    Maybe I'll just wait & buy stuff when we go shopping again. Its rainy & I'm exhausted.


I'll trade ya a comment for a smile!
