  • 32 sunflower seeds
  • 1-2 homemade googly eyes per apple bite

Cooking instructions

  1. If not already prepped, slice your apples into quarters.
  2. Cut the middles out of each apple wedge to create a mouth. Do not worry about cutting too deep - gap will be filled later.
  3. Coat inside of your freshly cut gap with sunflower butter.
  4. Place 4 sunflower seeds on the top of this "mouth" to represent teeth.
  5. Place 1 sliced strawberry in the mouth to represent the tongue.
  6. Use a dab of sunflower butter to glue each googly eye above the mouth. Use a mixture of one or two eyes (or if you're feeling adventurous, more!) to give each bite its own personality.
