‘Tis the Season.
We love the Halloween season at our house. LOVE it. So much so, that we make and hang Kleenex ghosts in the trees the 1st of October, start wearing costumes (in the privacy of our own home of course) on the 2nd, bust out haunted gingerbread houses on the 3rd, carve pumpkins on the 4th, and well… you get the picture.
Even our snacks start to take on a distinctly spook-tacular vibe.
These apple, peanut butter, marshmallow fangs totally remind me of the old-school wax teeth we loved as kids. The only thing missing is the faint scent of artificial wintergreen, and probably one or two (or ten) mystery ingredients that helped bind those wax suckers together.
In other words, the apple slice version is a much healthier alternative. And, what kid wouldn’t scramble for a free pass to play with their food?
Apple Slice Fangs (makes 4 sets)
- 1 Gala or Honeycrisp apple
- 24 miniature marshmallows
- ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
Cut four of the marshmallows in half at a diagonal to form the ‘fangs’ and set aside. Slice the apple into eight evenly sized slices (if you’re feeling really creative, carve top lip curves into four of the slices.) Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on one side of each of the apple slices, arrange the marshmallows to form the ‘teeth’ on four of the ‘bottom lip’ slices and gently top with the remaining four. BOOm, you’re done! (See what I did there?)
There really couldn’t be an easier snack than this and as an added bonus, the little beasts will be thoroughly impressed with your mad treat building skills. Hell, THEY might even give YOU a treat by letting you sleep in one Saturday morning, just to show their undying gratitude.
HAHAHA, oh boy… that was funny.
