Monster Teeth
4 medium-sized granny smith apples, cut into 8 sections each
1 cup natural creamy organic peanut butter
1 cup mini marshmallow
1 Tbsp. lemon juice or cinnamon
Section each apple and then sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Spread about 1 tsp. of peanut butter on each slice. Stick 4-6 mini-marshmallows on an angle in the peanut butter, then place a second peanut butter-covered apple slice on top. (You may need to secure with a toothpick or extra peanut butter.)
Cool 1 hour in refrigerator before serving.

Start with a regular pack of string cheese. Cut the cheese stick in half. Dice the “bristles” about 3/4 of the way from the top. Cut 2-3 planks on one side, then rotate the cheese and cut 3-4 slices again, giving you matchsticks, or “bristles”. Tie a single fresh chive around the top, just for cuteness. Or skip it. Gently insert a pretzel.
