Halloween Snacks & Treats


1. SILLY APPLE BITES
So easy and so fun to make and to eat! 
What you will need:
  • 2 green apples, each quartered
  • Nut butter of your choice (or sunflower butter for a nut free alternate)
  • 32 sunflower seeds or pepitas
  • 23 strawberries, sliced
  • 12 googly eyes per apple bite (these can be bought or home made using a drop of melted white choco and a drop of dark choco on a tray and then left to harden in fridge)

Method:

  1. Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth. Don’t worry about perfection, you are filling this gap with nut butter/ sunbutter anyway so if you cut too deep, you can always just cover it up and no one will know.
  2. Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of sunflower butter.
  3. Place 4 sunflower seeds/ pepitas on the top of the “mouth” for the teeth.
  4. Place 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth for the tongue.
  5. “Glue” each eye above the mouth with a dab of nut butter or sunbutter to stick.
