I have been a Mom for 11+ years. Not only that, but I have been a mom to BOYS for 11+ years, so I should have a corner on the market for ridiculously easy, silly and healthy snack ideas, right?
I can’t figure out how I am just now discovering the joy that are Apple, Peanut Butter, Marshmallow Lips. I first discovered the idea here and it was a LIGHT BULB MOMENT. I knew immediately I was about to earn some major Fun Mom points with a very minimal, 5 minute effort on my part.
If you would like to elevate your status as the FUN mom, I give you:
How to Make Apple, Peanut Butter, Marshmallow Lips:
All you’ll need:
-Apple corer/slicer (optional)
I used my apple slicer to quickly slice up the apple. I then discovered that the lips work better if I cut each slice in half – plus you can make twice as many that way!
I then spread a thin layer of peanut butter on one side of two apple slices.
I used ALDI’s SimplyNature Organic Creamy Peanut Butter, which was an easy way to up the healthy factor since it contains only organic peanuts and sea salt, with no added sugars or oils. My kids never even noticed that I switched up the peanut butter. It worked perfectly to hold the lips together – and it was the perfect complement to the sweetness of the apples and marshmallows.
Then place the marshmallows in the peanut butter one one apple slice as the teeth and set the other apple on top to complete the set of lips. I let my sit for about 5 minutes to let them set before enjoying them.
That’s it. Easy peasy, yummy and so fun!
Disclaimer: 8 year old boys will likely want to create their own set of lips and might go heavy on the marshmallows. But hey – there’s a few more fun mom points for you!

Frozen banana “coins” are the basis of so many delicious & healthful snacks for me. I use them to make creamy smoothies, but also to just grab. This way I always have bananas & at a great price. I’ve been a subscriber for a while & enjoy & learn sooo much – thanks!
These apple marshmallow treats are a great idea. I made some and it was a big hit at my house.
