  • 6 red apples
  • Lemon juice
  • Vimto or cider for adults


  • Peel 6 red apples, core and halve lengthways. Using a small sharp knife and a melon baller, create different faces and expressions on the apples.
  • If you are not baking the apples straight away, coat them with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • Preheat the oven to gas ½, 120ºC, fan 100ºC.
  • Place heads on a lined baking tray.
  • Bake for 2 hours or until heads look shrunken.
  • We used Vimto for its ghoulish look. For an adult version try cider.
  • Warming up the cider is recommended.
  • Once the cider is warm, add the heads.
