Let's face it: The treats of this season aren't so healthy what with the heavy meals, countless cookies and candy. All in moderation, I suppose.
When my cousin posted this recipe on her Facebook page a few weeks ago, my first thought was that these are absolutely adorable. But as my kids dug into them a few days ago, I also noted that they're actually healthy holiday treats, for the most part.
These are very easy to make and prepare. Both my four-year-old and my eight-year-old helped me put them together. I can see these dotting my cookie platters this Christmas and making their way to some holiday parties.
Here's how to make them:
Grinch fruit skewers
What you need
Tooth picks (I found decorative Christmas picks at a party store)
What you do
Skewer one green grape. Top it with a banana slice (cut about 1/4 inch thick or so). Top the banana slice with a hulled strawberry. The strawberry should be about the same diameter as the banana slice. Top the strawberry with a mini marshmallow. Enjoy!
