  • Assembling
    • Frankenguac: fill a bowl with guacamole, add black bean chips as hair, use sour cream for the whites of the eyeballs, mashed refried beans for the pupils and a squiggly mouth, black  olives for the nose and neck bolts.
    • Monster Apple Mouths: slice apple wedges and spread with nut or seed butter, sandwich together and place yogurt covered raisins in between to resemble teeth. Use a toothpick to secure together if necessary.
    • Bell Pepper Pumpkin: Slice 1 side off an orange bell pepper from top to bottom, leaving the stem in tact, remove the seeds. Flip the bell pepper over and use a pairing knife to cut out a jack-o-lantern face. Slice a red bell pepper into strips and fill the pumpkin bowl with bell pepper slices.
