Introduction: Ghastly Grins

It only takes a moment to compose these ghastly grins with peanut butter and apples.

Like a Cheshire Cat's smile, these ghosties have disappeared, leaving only their mysterious grins behind! What can you do but devour them?

Step 1: Ingredients

It only takes
  • apples
  • peanut butter (smooth is best)
  • mini marshmallows or white chocolate chips
to compose these toothsome treats!

Step 2: Assembly

Slice and core your apples.

Spread one side of each slice with peanut butter.

Top with teeth and sandwich together.

Step 3: Grin & Bear It

It's time to show off your ghastliest grins.

Have fun with different arrangement of teeth or by carving lip shapes.

Wait- is peanut butter meant to be sweet? The one that I've always eaten is salty O.O

To freshen breathe, you could use mints instead of marshmallows/chocolates.

I made these last year (posted that I used cinnamon spread or strawberry cream cheese in place of PB due to school rules) but recently discovered "SCHOOL SAFE" Soybutter, which looks AND tastes like PB. Hopefully get a chance to make them for another school party!

This was perfect for my Halloween picnic with husband #1.  While I didn't have mm's, I substituted with walnut pieces.  Realistic(?)  Yummy(!)

Good luck in the contest!

I made these for my child's halloween party at school, so no peanut butter allowed.  I used cinnamon spread on 1/2 of them, and strawberry cream cheese on the others...I cut the marshamallows and made fangs on some of them.  They turned out GREAT!

PB and apple slices are very yummy. And as long as you don't go overboard on the PB, it's quite healthy.

Apples and peanut butter tastes a lot like caramel apples, only a lot healthier and quicker to put together.

Looking at these makes me want to sing the theme to Rocky Horror... anybody else?

Peanut butter and apple? Does that "go"?

Peanut butter and banana, that goes...

Are you kidding? I've been living on peanut butter and apples since I was a kid! My mom used to core whole apples and stuff them with peanut butter. Hard to eat, but very fun. Also very hard to get peanut butter to actually stick to the apples. . . but worth the effort.

I guess it's a cultural thing, like deep-fried chocolate bars*.

*Which I have never, ever tried.

good idea. it is horrible.

 really? maybe i won't try it then... haha.

Don't let them fool you, it is delicious. Think of funnel cake with melted chocolate and gooey caramel.

I wouldn't be able to eat it more than once a year, but it is something you ought to try once.

As far as apples and peanut butter go, I've been eating them together my whole life.  They can be messy, but they are great together.

 sounds good... =P this is the first time i've heard of apples and peanut butter... only tried banana and peanut butter...

author
red-king (author)Kiteman2009-10-20

 i might have to try that deep fried chocolate bars thing... just once... because it sounds like doing it again will kill me... also, i've never heard of peanut butter and apples either.... but peanut butter and banana is great!

 Ewww. Don't make me gag!  
But really, you are missing out.  When I was little, my favorite snack was apples&peanut butter, But if you're like me, and don't like sweet stuff, like the gag-inducing thing you mentioned, try a Granny Smith apple, or other tarter, not as sweet apple with natural peanut butter (preferably made with peanuts and not a gallon of freaking sugar. ick).  The crunchiness of the apple and the smooth texture of the peanut butter are wonderfully complimentary. :)

APPLES AND peanut butter is SOOOOOOOOOOOO good!

Kiteman, you are really missing out. Peanut butter and apples make the best snack. A little bit of protein and some fruit, yummy!

The peanut butter would probably stick best if you dried the apples with a paper towel first, or even dusted them with a very small amount of corn starch.

Awesome idea - so cute!
