Severed Head Baked Apples with Oat Brains

This is the second in our series of Halloween themed treats. Last week we melted chocolate for all sorts of fabulous chocolate covered cookies and lollypops. And this week were making Severed Head Baked Apples with Oat Brains. 

Materials & Ingredients:
There are a few tools that will make this project a little easier:
  • An Apple peeler, you could use a knife but you will take more apple and chances are it won't be as round.
  • An Apple coring tool, (its the one at the top of the photo below)
  • A melon baller
  • A dull knife
  • a glass baking dish or a little casserole dish. 
And here are the ingredients:
  • Four Apples
  • Four pats of butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • A cup of oats
  • A sprinkle of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Apple juice 

Step One:
Preheat the oven to 350. Peel and core your apples. You may want to just eat the peels, they make a great snack. 

Step Two:
Now you are ready to carve a face in your apples. You can use the top of the apple peeler or the dull knife. You don't need a sharp knife and they can slip while your working. It's best to hold the apple in one hand while you carve. If you carve your face higher on the apple, it will be easier to see when served.

Step Three:
Add your ingredients. Put your apples in your glass pan. Fill the bottom with your oats. Sprinkle Brown sugar over the oats. Put a half a pat of butter in each apple and spread the rest around over the oats. Sprinkle cinnamon over the oats and the tops of the apples. 

Step Three:
Bake for ten minutes and then open the oven and swirls the oats around so they don't get too brown. Then put the apples back in the oven until brown - 5-10 more minutes. 

Step Four:
Take them out of the oven and spoon the oats into the middle of the apple. Make sure some spill out. Those are your oat brains. You can stop right here and serve if you want or... You can add craisins in the eye sockets. 

Come back next week when we make Crime Scene cupcakes.
