Apple monsters
Prep and Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
*1 apple
*1/3 cup, plus 2 teaspoons peanut butter spread, divided
*Pretzels
*4 red grapes, each sliced vertically in half
*8 green grapes
*16 chocolate chips

Instructions:
Quarter and core the apple, then quarter each piece again, so you have 16 thin wedges.

Spread 1 teaspoon peanut butter on each apple slice.
Lay half of the apple slices on top of the other halves, (matching up peanut butter sides so the apple slices stick together) to
create the mouth.

Push pretzel and teeth gently into the peanut butter, all around the mouth, leaving room to place a red grape on the bottom
slice of each mouth.

Place one red grape half in the center of each bottom slice to create the tongue.

To create the eyes, slice the ends off the green grapes, then cut each grape in half horizontally. (If your grapes are exceptionally large, you may get more than two eyes out of each one.) Using the tip of
the knife, make a small slit in the top of each grape half, then place a chocolate chip, pointy-end down, into the grape, pushing the point of the chocolate chip into the slit you cut.

Place two small dollops of peanut butter on the top portion of each mouth, then gently press a grape eye onto each dollop.

Enjoy immediately, or store in the refrigerator for an hour or two before
serving.
