Here is a fun and healthy idea we really like – the Grinch Fruit Snack. Not only is it yummy, it is adorable. You may want to think twice before eating it! Full details about making this dessert can be found at:
This was created by Jill and her three young boys. She likes to blog about her wonderful food creations, and she has been asked to write for a couple other food sites too.
This creation does involve a bit of work, and toothpicks are used to hold everything in place. That is great for picture taking, but you will want to make sure no one pokes themself on a toothpick when they grab for this, or accidentally bite down on one.
What you could do instead is cut the top off the green apple so it has a flat top. Then on top you strategically place the strawberries. They will not be able to be mounted real high, but high enough, and you will not need to use toothpicks to keep them in place.
If you want to make a Santa Hat, with a marshmallow at the end of a strawberry, then use a toothpick is probably in order. Perhaps a little whipped cream at the end of a strawberry can serve as a good replacement.
Have fun with this one!
