♥Let's do the mouth - the monster mouth!♥



Nothing is more fun or more sweet or produces more giggles than these darling treats for after school or on the weekend after raking leaves and walking the dog. This one is a keeper for sure. The grandkids have a blast making and eating them and I love to make them, too! These are easy enough for even the tiniest of fingers to give them a try. Who cares what they look like - fun is the name of the game!

Ingredients

* 2 medium green or red apples (I like to use Granny Smith because they help to cut the sweetness)
* 1/3 cup peanut butter
* 1/3 cup candy corn

Directions

1. Core apples; cut each into 8 thick slices. Make each moth by spreading about 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter on an apple slice. Add about 5 pieces candy corn for teeth.
2. Spread another apple slice with about 1 teaspoon peanut butter; press on top of first apple slice. Makes 4 servings.

Hi, Mimi,
We are in Midland. I love Shabby Chic, too, but not my hubby's cup of tea. I did get to help my dd decorate her apartment in that style this summer. It was great fun. Hope your snow is all gone.

Hello Mimi, thank you so much for stopping back to check on Molly. She is a little better today. A little bounce in her steps. She is having this drainage thing going on now. She goes to a follow up with our regular vet on Thrusday. I doubt he will be able to take her staples out because of the drainage.
I'll keep you posted.
Adorable post here! How cute!
Bless you, Shirl

That is so cool that you are from Saginaw originally. My dh is from Midland, born and raised here. I'm from Miss. originally, but been here for 20 yrs. and don't expect to ever return South. We bought property up in Cheboygan for retirement on a small lake. Definitely keep in touch!
