With Halloween just a week away I thought I’d share some simple and, spooktacular treats that you can make with your little or big boys ‘n ghouls.


What You Need:

  • Apple cored and sliced in ¼ in slices width wise

How to Make Them:

  • Cover the ‘jaw’ i.e. fruit slice with a thin layer of ‘gum glue’ i.e. peanut butter or Nutella
  • Place the ‘teeth’ i.e. mini marshmallows around the edge of the ‘jaw’ (fruit)


  • Place candy corn on upper and lower to look like a vampire!
  • Make an upper ‘jaw with teeth’ and place on top
  • Dye one or several of the teeth using food dye
  • Red for blood
  • Black or blue for rotten

Open your mouth wide and enjoy!
