Ingredients
  1. 2 slices pumpernickel bread
  2. Chunky peanut butter and apricot jelly/jam (or your choice of filling)
  3. Chow mein noodles (or try pretzel sticks or carrot sticks)
  4. 1 small carrot (for eyes)
  5. 2 chocolate chips (also for eyes)
Instructions
  1. Use cookie cutters or a small cake pan (the top layer of a tiered cake pan set works well) to stamp the monster's "body" out of two slices of bread.
  2. Tip: Let the bread sit for 10-15 minutes once the shape has been cut out—this makes it easier to spread the filling in the centre as the bread will be slightly more firm.
  3. Spread the filling on one slice and top with the remaining slice.
  4. To make eyes: cut two small carrot rounds. Press them into the top slice of sandwich bread. Top with a dab of peanut butter (or other sticky ingredient) and press the chocolate chips on top.
  5. To make legs: Insert eight pieces of noodles at even intervals around the body of the sandwich.
  6. This recipe was inspired by the Scary Monster Treat in Jennifer McCann's delightful Vegan Lunch Box collection of recipes.
