Say Hi To The Apple Monster!

Pin It Now!












Say cheese......
This apple monster idea I got from Family Fun is definitely a fun and healthy snack your kids will love.
You need: apple, slivered almonds, toothpicks, mini marshmallows and some green cookie icing.


You can get 4 monsters out of one apple.



Put the smaller wedge in your mouth then eat it!
You may toast the almonds first if you want.


 Break each pieces of almond in half, then stick them in place for teeth.



Add eyes


 Tip: leaving apple in salt water for a few seconds will keep it from browning!




Oct 12, 2011 update:
If you or your kids are allergic to nuts, here is another option: apple vampire















The teeth were cut out from McDonalds straw.
Isn't it a fun and healthy little treat to send to school? Just don't forget to remind the kids to pull out vampire's teeth before eating!

  7. Thank you Jetta.
    I used green cookie icing and sprinkles (the kind people put on cupcakes). I think it looks good with only a bit green icing.

  12. Hi Tiffany!
    Your apple monster rocks!
    I made these for my son's kindie class, but he's allergic to nuts.
    So I used Jicama for the teeth instead of almonds.
    It looked just as cute.

  17. I used the apple vamps at my Halloween party. My son is allergic to nuts so everything had to be made from scratch. Instead of the straws, I used pretzel sticks. They stick into the apple and hold in place. I just cut the stick half way on the exposed area and shaped into fangs. They were a big hit!

  19. Thanks for the ideas I have to brind a fruit to my daughters halloween party at school on Monday and wanted to do something creative without nuts as well. I am going to try the apple moster with the stick pretzels. You think is will work? If not do you have other ideas that you can instead of the straws or nuts?

  20. It,s been 2 days since I saw your message, but I still can't think of anything that can replace nuts or straws. So sorry ;(

  21. mini marshmallows cut into fangs or teeth work well!

    ReplyDelete

  23. The marshmallows will stay on the toothpicks. No problem!
