Halloween Recipe: Vampire Bites

Bites1

Are you ready for the easiest Halloween recipe you’ll make? Here it goes…

Cut up an apple, add some peanut butter, finish with almond slivers.

Bam! You are done.

Ingredients1

Seriously, it’s that easy. Plus, it’s a healthy alternative to gorging on Halloween candy.

You’re welcome.

Active Time:  30 minutes
Total Time:  30 minutes
Serves: 12

Ingredients:

  • 3 red delicious apples
  • 6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (approximately)
  • 18 almond slivers

Cut each apple into 12 even slices. Be sure to remove the core. (I always cut it out after slicing. My apple corer lost a battle against an apple earlier this year.)

Ingredients2

Spread about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter on an apple slice. Top the peanut butter with another slice, leaving about 1/8 inch of peanut butter showing between apple slices. Repeat with remaining apple slices and peanut butter. Set to the side.

Carefully cut the almond slivers in half lengthwise. Be careful to not break them as you cut. Carefully cut one end of each half. (This will be the top of the vampire fang.)

Gently press the almond sliver halves onto the peanut butter, round sides out, making them look like fangs. Repeat with each apple-peanut butter combo.

Serve immediately.

(Note: If you want to prepare these a few hours early, I recommend trying this trick to prevent apples from turning brown. I’ve tried it, and it works. You would need to do this before adding the peanut butter.)

Enjoy!
