1. Create the Ghastly Grin: First, let's make our monsters' mouths. Carefully carve out the middle of each apple quarter to create a spooky mouth shape. Don't worry if it's not perfect; the monsters love a little imperfection!


2. Caramel Magic: It's time to fill the monster's mouth with a blend of caramel and citric acid, which adds sweetness with a kick and holds the monster's features in place.


3. Fangtastic Teeth: For some toothy charm, place sunflower seeds in the caramel to resemble teeth. Our monsters are ready to take a bite out of Halloween!


4. Devilish Tongues: Monsters need tongues, too! Add a sliced strawberry inside the caramel mouth to create a devilishly delightful tongue.


5. Eyes of Terror: These monsters wouldn't be complete without their eyes. Use a dab of caramel sauce to "glue" a set of googly eyes above their grinning mouths. The stickier, the spookier!


6. Serve and Scream: Now that your Citric Acid Caramel Apple Monsters are ready, it's time to serve these deliciously dreadful delights. Watch your guests' faces light up with frightful joy as they savor the sweet and tangy flavors. Enjoy the screams of delight!
