  • 2 green apples, each quartered  
  • Flaked almonds (or sunflower seeds) 
  • 2-3 strawberries, sliced  
  • Peanut butter (or sunflower butter, or jam) 
  • Chocolate chips or raisins (for eyes) 



  1. Cut the apples into quarters  
  2. Cut the middles our of each quarter of the apple to create the mouth – don’t worry about making this perfect – they get filled with peanut butter anyway!  
  3. Fill the inside of the mouth with peanut butter (or substitute) 
  4. Place the strawberry slice on the bottom of the mouth for the tongue  
  5. Place the almond flakes on the top of the mouth for the teeth  
  6. Glue the almond eye above the mouth using melted chocolate, peanut butter, or anything you can think of!  
  7. Enjoy…if you dare!

  2. With a teaspoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over the strawberries to create the ‘bandage’  
  3. Stick the chocolate chips on for eyes!
