Why You'll Love Making These Silly Apple Faces

These are a perfect after-school snack or addition to a Halloween party. The green apple monster mouths are easy to pull together and kids can help make them.

They all have uniquely goofball expressions - especially if you use the candy eyes and make their teeth a little wonky.

Tips for Making this Recipe

Preparation Tips - The only tricky part of this recipe is cutting the mouth out of the quartered apple. This will need to be done by an adult, as it involves holding a knife at an angle.

Specialty Ingredients - I highly recommend using Wilton's candy eyes for this recipe. The eyeballs give the apple mouths such fun expressions!

Storing Tips - The apples will brown after they've been sliced, so I would recommend serving these within an hour of making them.
