Mike Wazowski Apple Snacks: 

Tasty, kid-friendly recipes are hard to come by, but this one is sure to impress your dinner guests as well as your little ones. The adorable Mike Wazowski apple is easy to make, and the yogurt dip can also double as a delicious breakfast treat!


1 pink lady, jazzy, or fuji apple, diced

¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1 Granny Smith apple

1 slice of provolone cheese

Peanut butter

1 green or blue fruit roll up

Black food safe marker

Almond slivers

5 pink lady, jazzy, or fuji apples, cut into slices

Small round fondant or cookie cutters

To make the yogurt dip, combine the diced apple, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and butter in a small pot. Cook on low with a lid on until soft. Remove the cooked apples from the heat and set the, aside to cool. Once cool, add the cooked apple to the vanilla yogurt and stir well. Store the apple dip in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

To make the Mike Wazowski apple, cut a 1 inch round out of the cheese. Use a small amount of peanut butter to secure the eye onto your Granny Smith apple. Next, make the colored part of the eye by cutting a small circle from a Fruit Roll Up and attaching it to the center of the piece of cheese. Use a food safe marker to give Mike a pupil and a mouth. If your apple isn’t standing well, use a knife to cut a small round out of the bottom or back side of the apple to help it stand up. Once the apple is standing up right, use a small knife to cut slits exactly where you want his ears to go. Position an almond sliver for each ear.

TADA you’ve made a Mike Wazowski apple.

Serve your apple slices on a plate with your Mike apple and dipping sauce.

Monsters University Homemade Ramen: 

You can keep the noodles from the Ramen package, but use fresh ingredients to make this delicious soup instead of the seasoning packet. Enjoy your ramen in an oversized mug with a slice of lime.


2 leeks, sliced into rounds

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves of garlic, skinned

3 chicken thighs with bone and skin

1 chicken breast with bone and skin

1 teaspoon salt

3 quarts chicken stock

¼ teaspoon black pepper

2 cup carrot, diced

2 cup peas

2 ears of corn, cut off the cob

½ teaspoon paprika

¼ teaspoon cayenne

4 packages Top Ramen

Lime wedges (optional)


Saute the leeks and garlic in a stock pot with the olive oil. Once soft, remove from the pot and brown the chicken on both sides. Once browned, add the leeks and garlic back into the pot with the chicken stock. Simmer for 2 hours until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken from pot and allow it to cool. While the chicken is cooling, bring the stock to a boil and add the vegetables and the ramen noodles. Cook for 8 minutes. While the noodles and vegetables are simmering, shred the chicken. After the soup has finished cooking, add the chicken back into the ramen and stir to combine.

Serve hot out of your favorite mug with a wedge of lime.
