Aren't these little monsters adorable? They're mostly fruit, so you won't feel too bad munching on them. Play around with their teeth and eye spacing to give them each some character. After slicing the apples, this would be a great edible craft for kids. Have fun!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4-5 monsters per apple


  • green apple(s)
  • knife
  • peanut butter
  • sunflower seeds
  • strawberry jam
  • strawberries
  • mini marshmallows
  • toothpicks
  • black decorating gel


  1. Cut apples in half, then cut into 4-5 equal segments. If you're making several at one time, sprinkle with lemon juice so they don't go brown.

  3. Peel off the core bits. Cut a small segment out of each apple wedge to create the monster's open mouth.
  4. Swipe the inside with peanut butter, then pierce the inside of the mouths with sunflower seeds as teeth. For variation, I put strawberry jam in some of the mouths instead of peanut butter.
  5. To make the tongues, thinly slice the strawberries.
  6. Cut each mini marshmallow in half to make eyes.

  8. Place each marshmallow half on a toothpick, then add a dot of black gel in the center to make pupils.
  9. Pierce the eyes into the top of the apple, then place a slice of strawberry in the mouth. Remove toothpicks before devouring!
