Directions
Step 1

With a paring knife, cut the middles of the quartered apples to look like mouths. Spread the bottom of each of the “mouths” with about ¾ teaspoon peanut butter. Push sunflower seeds into the top of each apple “mouth” to create “teeth.”

Step 2

Arrange a strawberry slice into the “mouth” to make the “tongue.”

Step 3

To make the “eyes,” apply about ¼ teaspoon peanut butter on the top of the apple. On each apple quarter, arrange 2 banana circles on the peanut butter and insert the chocolate chips in the center of the banana circles. Serve immediately.

My baby nephew was obsessed with these apple monster mouths that I brought to a family Halloween party! They are super cute and a cinch to make. For a holiday that is centered around candy, it was great to have these on hand to satisfy my nephew's sweet tooth.
