If you're looking for healthy Halloween recipe ideas then look no further than these Rotting Teeth apples! They're so fun to make and super effective looking and the best thing about these teeth is the more discoloured the apples get the more ghoulish they look! Just in case, I did soak the apple quarters in lemon juice water and then stuck in some peanuts mixed with dulce de leche or caramel into them. I did find the tooth adding process helped with some sharp knife digs and some fell out so you do need a bit of patience with these.
Rotting Apple Teeth
An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes
3 red apples (Sundowners or round shaped apples are best as opposed to apples like red delicious)
30g/1 oz roasted peanuts
2 teaspoons caramel top and fill or dulce de leche
A large bowl of lemon water
Step 1 - Core and quarter apples and place in the lemon water. Slice out a roughly 90 degree section from the skin side as shown-you may have to slice a few times to get enough out to fit in the peanut "teeth". Coat the peanuts in the caramel and then flipping the apple so that you are pushing down the teeth into the apple vertically, insert four or five teeth per apple.
