Looking for a great party snack? Instead of chips or cookies, reach for fruit to make a fun and healthy platter.
- Chocolate chips
For the ghosts, take each banana and slice in half. Add a chocolate chip for the mouth. If you have mini chocolate chips use these for the eyes, and if not slice a regular sized chocolate chip in half. For the pumpkins, peel each clementine, making sure to keep the segments together. Cut small pieces of celery and use these as stems.
- Lemon Juice
- Peanut butter
- Almonds, peeled
- Slice the apples into pieces that look like lips (just a standard slice will work).
- Place the sliced apples in a bowl or lemon water for about 10-15 minutes so they don't brown.
- Heavily spread peanut butter on the tops of each apple slice.
- Stick the "teeth" into the peanut butter of one apple slice.
- Place an apple slice without teeth on top.
