Apple Mummies – A Healthy Halloween Treat!

Prep Time 5 min.
Cook Time 0 min.
Total Time 5 minutes
Yields Each apple will make two mummies

Ingredients

  • Apples
  • Mini chocolate chips or dried blueberries

Directions

  1. Cut each apple in half vertically and carefully remove the core.
  2. Starting at one edge, use a vegetable peeler to remove haphazard strips of apple peel.
  3. Lay each apple half on a plate or serving tray and press two eyes into the apple in an area where the peel has been removed. If you're using mini chocolate chips, push the pointy end in first. If you're using dried blueberries, it may help to use a paring knife to make a tiny divot in the apple where you want each eye to go, and then gently press the blueberry eyes in.

Recipe Notes

Some apples (such as Granny Smith) tend to turn brown more quickly than others after they've been cut. If you need your apples to look fresh for a while (on a fruit tray for a Halloween party, for example), you may want to choose apples that don't turn brown quite as quickly (such as Pink Ladies and Honeycrisps).
