Halloween Apple Teeth (Recipe Source: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/219206/halloween-fruit-apple-teeth-treats/)

Prep Time: 15 minutes


  • 4 apples – cored and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
  • 1 (2.25 ounce) package blanched slivered almonds


With a small, sharp paring knife, cut a lengthwise wedge from the skin side of each apple quarter, leaving the peel around the wedge for lips. If desired, rub the cut portions of the apple quarters with lemon juice to prevent browning. Poke 5 or 6 slivered almonds into the top and bottom of the cut-out area to make snaggly teeth.

Note: I’ve also seen these made with mini marshmallows for the teeth. Use peanut butter to hold the teeth in place. If you can’t use peanut butter (due to allergies or intolerance), try using cream cheese or a thick frosting.

Severed Fingers (Recipe Source: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/239784/severed-finger-cheese-sticks/

Prep Time: 15 minutes


  • 6 string cheese sticks
  • 12 almond slices
  • 2 tbsp. of hot pepper sauce


Round off the ends of each cheese stick with a paring knife to resemble a fingertip. Roughly tear each cheese stick in half to form two torn-off “fingers”.

Shave off a piece of each cheese “fingertip” to form a nail bed; place an almond slice on the “nail bed” to form a “fingernail”.

Cut a few shallow lines in center of each “finger” to form knuckle marks.

Pour several drops of hot sauce into small pools of “blood” on a serving plate. Dip torn ends of the cheese fingers into “blood” to resemble bloody fingers. Lay each “finger” in its own pool of “blood”.
