There's no trick to making this Halloween treat. Monster apple bites is an ingenious yet simple recipe that your little monsters are sure to love preparing with you -- and eating too!

There are only six ingredients and no baking is needed!


  • A green apple
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Marshmallows
  • Purple grapes (I used moondrops, which are longer than regular grapes)
  • Chocolate drops
  • Pine nuts


  1. Cut the apple in half and then cut the halves in half again to make quarters.
  2. Cut a wedge out of each quarter to create the mouth on the skin side.
  3. Fill the gap/mouth with peanut butter spread.
  4. Place the pine nuts on top of the mouth for the teeth.
  5. Slice the grapes lengthwise and place one slice at the bottom of the mouth for the tongue.
  6. Slice the marshmallows for the eyes and stick one or two pieces above the mouth with some peanut butter.
  7. Add a chocolate drop at the center of each eye.

Boo-tiful! Now your monstrous treat is ready to eat!
