And they’re pretty healthy (with the exception of the marshmallow teeth).

These apple smile treats are PERFECT treats for a Halloween party – or just anytime really! Just make some jack o’lanterns with these pumpkin carving stencils, and have some fun!

What you’ll need

The ingredients for this recipe are super simple. First, you’ll need:

  • 1 apple (we used red apples like Red Delicious, because they look pretty in photos)
  • 8 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 30 mini marshmallows

How to make apple smiles

So, how do you assemble these little apple smiles for kids? They’re about as easy and quick as you’d imagine.

First, core and slice your apple into eight equal slices.

Now spread a 1 tablespoon peanut butter onto the top of each of two slices of apple.

Tip! If the peanut butter doesn’t want to stick, lightly dab the apple slices with a paper towel to remove extra moisture.

Put a row of seven marshmallow teeth on one of the slices, on top of the peanut butter.

Now, put a slice of apple (with peanut butter spread on already) on top of the marshmallow teeth. Press them together until they stick.

Voila, you have your cute apple smile!

Repeat three more times, and you’ll have four apple smiles in total.

Helpful hints!

If you’re not a peanut butter fan, you can substitute Nutella. My kids loved the Nutella version.

Kids love to help make these, so if you don’t mind a few sticky fingers, let them come into the kitchen and help you assemble once the apples are cut!

We used red delicious apples here, because they’re so pretty for photos. Honestly, though, I find red delicious apples are woody, and not that tasty. I”m not alone. That said, I’d probably use an Ambrosia apple instead, if you can get them. Anything other than a red delicious.
