3-Ingredient Halloween Apple Bites

This has to be one of the easiest Halloween treats in all of Halloween treat-making history. I’m really not a crafty person when it comes to making holiday things, but these were almost fool proof.

Note the word almost! Eric and I did a “test run” one night last week and we could not stop laughing at our first couple tries (note the dried apricot tongue and vampire blood! hah), but our apple bite skills seemed to improve slightly with time.

First you slice ‘em up. Feel free to rub a bit of lemon juice on them if they will be sitting out. This is why I like spreading nut butter on the middle to cover up the apple flesh – it hides a bit of browning.

You can also core the apple and then slice in into quarters, but I found this method above made for better looking bites. Plus, you get to eat the leftover middle piece, which you will certainly want to take advantage of.

Now, spread on some jam or nut butter for the tongue and then push some slivered almonds in for the teeth. For a nut-free option, sunflower or pumpkin seeds can work in a pinch. Likewise, you could also use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.

Apple Bites make for a festive, healthy, and seasonal addition to any Halloween table. Given how much fun we had, I suspect kids would also have a blast making these.

Have a great Monday!

They look gorgeous! I was looking for an alternative to the marshmallow ones and these look not only more delicious but much scarier as well :-)

If you are not opposed to using 7-up or Sprite, you can toss the apples with that before decorating; this will keep them from browning as well. Very cute idea, my boys will enjoy this for sure, thanks!

I was just wondering how you keep them from turning brown? Or do they with the PB in them? Yeah I am new to all this stuff.

You can try spreading on some lemon juice to help with the browning. They will still turn a bit though, it’s hard to prevent that entirely.

Angela, you are awesome!!! I have been struggling with food for YEARS, and am trying to find a balance between being too strict foodwise, and binging on every kind of fattening food there is. This is site (and your story) are so inspirational. I am SO glad I found it! :) PS – Sketchie is too cute! I have a couple of kitties of my own :)

These came out soooo well! I brought them to a pumpkin carving party tonight and people loved them! I loved how easy and and healthy they were! I thought it would be cute to use sunflower seeds as teeth and slivered almonds as the two long vampire teeth!

Made these this weekend and we used broken up banana chips for the teeth and sunflower butter for a nut-free party. The banana chips are awesome and give you fangs and funny shaped teeth. Great idea!
