If desired… before inserting the strawberry tongue,  you can fill the mouth with your favorite nut butter or jam for an extra spooky (and delicious) effect. Happy eating!

NOTE: Be sure to remove the toothpicks under the eyes before serving to younger children.

Happy and healthy Halloween eating for the little monsters at your dinner table!
