A Groundhog Fruit Snack!


Groundhog Day is just around the corner (Feb.2) and we have seen a lot of super cute Groundhog cookies and cakes that people have shared this year...along with our Groundhog Desserts that we made a couple of weeks back. I wanted to share a healthy one and I made this for my boys today for a after school snack. I am sure they will love it!

It's SO easy and all you will need is 1 pear, dark grapes, and green grapes.

Wash the fruit and cut the top of the pear off. Place the pear cut side down on the plate. Cut the grapes in half. Place the dark grapes around the pear to look like a hole. Place the green grapes around the dark grapes to look like grass. Make the face details and ears using the pear scraps that you cut off. Everything will just stick on! I did cut a slit for the mouth and pushed in the teeth.

Linking up to these awesome link parties...please check them out!

  8. I want to use this tomorrow for my daughter lunch.... But just wondering how you got the grapes to stick as eyes? toothpicks?

  9. Thanks Kim! Kristie...I cut the grape in half. Put the inside part on the pear. Everything will stick on and you will not have to attach with anything else.

  16. VERY clever to use the dark grapes so it looks like he's popping out of a hole. Quick & easy to put together - love it.

    Reason for cutting the grapes is so they won't roll around on the plate.
