I have noticed these three fun ideas all over the internet in the last couple of years. So, I thought the kids would have a blast making some mandarin orange pumpkins, apple and peanut butter teeth and banana ghosts in an episode of "Kids in the Kitchen". We had such a great time making our little fruit treats.
I know my kids will still love a candy bar from time to time.. but it's nice that the fruit treats were so enthusiastically enjoyed by them too. I hope you like what the kids cooked up this time!
- Seedless clementine or mandarin oranges
- Celery and with celery leaves
Peel clementine orange and insert a small piece of celery as the stem. Then garnish with celery leaves.
- Apples sliced
Note: soak cut apples in a bowl of water and 1 tsp of salt solution to keep from browning
- Creamy Peanut Butter
- Mini Marshmallows
Apply a thick layer of peanut butter one side of two slices of apple slices. Wedge together and place mini marshmallows for teeth.
- Yellow banana (firm)
- Mini chocolate chips for eyes
- Regular chocolate chips for mouth
Peel yellow banana and slice in half. Make sure to keep a flat bottom to make the banana stand up.Use a skewer to make holes for eyes and mouth. Press chocolate chips as needed to make eyes and mouth.
