Serves icon Makes 16
Cook Time icon 15 min

These monster bites are a delightful and playful treat that will add a playful touch to your Halloween occasion. With the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy, they are not only adorable but also delicious.

What do I need?

  • 2 pink lady apples
  • 1 small jar peanut butter
  • 1 small bag mini marshmallows
  • Toothpicks and white chocolate coated raisins (optional)

How do I make it?

  1. Begin by thoroughly washing the apples and slicing them into four sections.
  2. Carefully remove the core from each apple section and then cut them in half again to create the distinctive lips of your little monster.
  3. If you are making ahead of time, brush apple flesh with lemon juice or lemonade to prevent browning.
  4. Take each apple slice and generously spread peanut butter on one side. Allow the peanut butter to ooze over the edge of the peel side, creating a delicious and sticky base.
  5. Now comes the fun part! Press mini marshmallows along the peel side to make the teeth and place one “tooth” behind the row of teeth to anchor the top lip.
  6. Position the top of the apple slice onto the teeth, completing the look.
  7. Optionally, for an extra eerie effect, create additional monster eyes using toothpicks and white chocolate-coated raisins. Insert toothpicks into the apple slices and attach the raisins to add more personality to your little monsters.
