I suppose these “easy monster apples” for Halloween could also be called “easy vampire apples,” minus the cape and blood on the teeth (or, orange juice? I’m thinking oranges might be their prey). This is such a quick and simple idea for a healthy Halloween treat. Try it with other fruit, too, such as those oranges I was just talking about, or pears.
To help prevent browning, I brushed the mouths with honey. It works really well. If you want less sugar, try lemon juice instead, although there is really just a speck of honey on these, not much at all, as long as you brush a light film to cover all of the exposed fruit.
Are you ready for Halloween? These oh-so-scary apples will get you there.
