Super silly, absolutely tasty, Monster Apple Faces.

During the kids birthday party we had a candy buffet for the kids to decorate their own cupcakes – it was a huge hit!     But really, we should have just skipped the cake and had the kids make these!

The Apple Faces would be a great alternative to a birthday “cake” for families with gluten intolerance!

What did we use to create our faces?   Apples, carrots, cream cheese, peanut butter, coconut shavings, sprinkles, nerds, jelly beans, nerds, yogurt covered raisins, cereal, gummy worms, licorice bits, and more!

Kids Snack Instructions:

Cut slightly less than 1/4th of the apple out, and core the remaining portion.   This will be the apple’s “mouth”.

Add something sticky to coat the mouth of your apple – we used cream cheese and peanut butter, but I bet nutella would be great too!

Silly snack for kids

We made some with horns, some apple monster faces with worms crawling out of their heads, and of course, lots of crazy eyes.   These were a hit with my preschoolers..
