The recipe calls for vegan Dandies mini marshmallows for the teeth, but you can use any kind of mini marshmallows you'd like.

Candy eyeballs sprinkles


Toothpicks (cut in half)


To make marshmallow teeth:

To make marshmallow eyes:

To assemble mouths:

Core and cut apples into eight slices.

Spread peanut butter onto one apple slice. Top with marshmallow teeth.

Spread another apple slice with peanut butter and press on top of the marshmallow teeth, squeezing the apple slices gently together to form a mouth.

Fill mouth with sprinkles.

Attach marshmallow eyes by inserting one end of a toothpick into the marshmallow and the other end into the top apple slice.

Continue with the remaining slices.
