For our snack we used:
Before the kids got home, I cut the apples into fourths and cored them.
Then, I cut out little triangles to make the "mouth" shape. You could use slices of apples, but cutting them this year made it easier for the apples to hold the dip and kept everything together.
The kids each got a paper plate with an apple mouth, a spoonful of caramel dip, a plastic knife, and some marshmallows. This made clean-up a lot easier when working with a bigger group of kids :)
The kids spread the caramel in their apples...
And then put the marshmallows in for teeth!
We had lots of gooey variations on the troll smiles...
And even one apple frog :)
The rest of the apples and marshmallows were quickly devoured and the kids took off to play. Thankfully, clean-up just meant throwing away the plates and wiping up the table!
Happy Halloween Nibbling!
