Apple Goons and Eyeballs

Ingredients – 

Eyeballs – make 24 hrs ahead:

Package of mini-chocolate chips 1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon corn syrup
2 teaspoons milk

2 green apples – cored and quartered
peanut butter
3 strawberries, sliced flat for tongues
64 shelled sunflower seeds for teeth

Directions – 

Eyeballs

Whisk together powdered sugar and cornstarch. Add corn syrup and milk and stir to a thick paste. Spoon into a piping bag (or baggie with the corner snipped off) and pipe small dots onto a sheet of waxed paper. Gently add a mini chocolate chip in the center before the icing sets up. Allow the eyes to set (or dry), on your counter, for at least 24 hours.

Apple Goons

Cut a mouth out of the center of the peel side. Fill gap with peanut butter. Place a sliced strawberry as the tongue, 8 sunflower seeds as the teeth and “glue” the premade eyeballs on with a little peanut butter.
