How to Keep Apples from Browning

I highly suggest doing this to your apples before assembling them because it will help prevent your apples from browning.

Cut and wash your apples. Soak your apples in a ratio of 1 cup of water with 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Let them soak for about 5 minutes. Rinse them off and pat them dry. This will help to keep your apples from turning brown.

How to Make Halloween Monster Apples

To make your cute monster apples you’re going to need:

Here’s how to make your Halloween Monster Apples

Using a pair of kitchen shears, cut each mini marshmallow into four pieces. Set aside.

Slice each apple into 8 wedges. Cut off and discard the core of the apple.

Create a mouth by cutting the middle out of each apple wedge. Do not cut through the wedge. Just cut enough to create a mouth shape.

Remove the skin from the mini wedge you just cut out of the apple. Cut the skin in half to create two monster tongues. Repeat with the remaining mini wedges.

Spoon Nutella into a sandwich bag. Cut the tip to create a small piping bag. Pipe a small amount of Nutella into the ‘mouth’ of the red apple wedges. Repeat with the green apple wedges, using the strawberry jelly.

Place one of the tongues into the mouth of the apple wedge.

Add 4 pieces of the cut-up mini marshmallows to each apple wedge mouth.

Use the piping bag to dab a small amount of Nutella or strawberry jelly above the mouth and place a candy eyeball on top

Enjoy!
