29 Oct Healthy Halloween
Recipe: Monster Mouths
Angie’s Note: We made these fun monster mouths as a healthy Halloween treat last year. They were a hit! They’re tasty and fun!! Be sure to snap a picture of your kiddo with their monster mouth before it gets eaten up! These are also a great party snack or craft for Halloween school parties.
4 Organic Green Apples
Nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, or use sunbutter (sunflower seeds) to avoid nut allergies)
Slivered Almonds (or we used pumpkin seeds to avoid nut allergies)
Place apple, stem side up, on cutting board. Cut the apple in quartered sections (cutting in half and then cutting each half again). Remove the core of the apple from each slice. Using a crinkle cutter, cut each ¼ slice of apple in half. The crinkle cutter provides a toothy edge to the apple. Each apple will yield 8 wedges.
Spread 2 teaspoons nut butter on wide edge of apple slice. Top with another crinkled edge apple slice, aligning crinkled edges to resemble jaws. Insert almond slivers to make fangs.
Get a picture of your little monster with their crazy-toothed mouth and then enjoy the tasty treat!
