published Friday, October 9, 2020
Add 2 Tbsp Greek yogurt to zipper bag and set aside.
Combine remaining 2 containers of yogurt with chocolate hazelnut spread, stir until combined. Place in serving bowl.
Cut off the tip of corner of bag with reserved yogurt to make a piping bag. Pipe 4 circles on top of yogurt dip. Use a toothpick and drag the center circle out. Repeat to create spider web design. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
Wash strawberries and dry completely. Cut stem off, creating flat surface.
Melt 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips at 30 second intervals in microwave, stir. Place in piping bag or plastic sandwich zipped bag and cut tip off. Pipe melted chocolate in frown shape of strawberries, flatten chocolate with toothpick, allow to dry and harden.
Melt 4 Tbsp white chocolate at 30 second intervals until melted, stir. Use a toothpick to make pointed teeth in mouth of hardened milk chocolate. Allow to harden before serving.
Quarter apples, remove seeds. Use a paring knife to cut the middles of the quartered apples to look like mouths. (If not serving right away, dunk in lemon juice bath and dry.)
With the red apples, smooth peanut butter in the mouth. Place sliced almonds along the top and bottom of mouth for teeth. With the green apples, smooth jam in the mouth and place mini-marshmallows in the jam as teeth.
Stick 2 toothpicks through the back of apples, level with the table so that the apple mouths sit up. Place a mini-marshmallow on top of each toothpick. Draw a circle for eyes with black writing gel. Refrigerate apples until ready to serve.
Peel clementines. Place a pretzel stick through the middle to create a pumpkin look. You can serve whole or half clementines. If the pretzel stick doesn't stay in place, use peanut butter to secure.
Peel bananas and slice in half. Use a toothpick to dab peanut butter where the eyes and mouth will go. Place a mini-chocolate chip for eyes and a raisin for the nose.
Place all monster fruit on a platter with the spider web dip. Enjoy!
