SILLY APPLE BITES

  • Author: Fork & Beans
  •  Prep Time: 15 mins
  •  Total Time: 15 mins
  •  Yield: 24 Silly Apple Bites

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 green apples, each quartered
  • sunflower spread/butter
  • 96 sunflower seeds
  • 6–9 strawberries, sliced
  • 3–6 homemade googly eyes per apple bite
  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 spread/butter 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 spread/butter.
  3. Place 4 sunflower seeds 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 spread/butter to stick.

Serve with a smile!
