How neat is this? A series of fruits pierced with shish kabob wooden sticks.The body is a pear. Googly eyes were used (just make sure to remove them before someone eats them. The beak and feet are trimmed from fruit roll ups. You could make the eyes out of rice paper with drawn on pupils from a sharpie marker if you have concerns for guests not eating the googly eyes. The fruit used to make the tail can be anything you just have to make sure you are consistent with putting them on so that they all keep the rainbow effect. After you cut the fruit toss in a bowl with water and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Blot to dry. This would be great for a thanksgiving dinner.
Using wooden skewers cut into halves push one half of a bananas onto skewer. Then one-third marshmallow and then half strawberry and then top with mini-marshmallow. Add a red M&M to banana by pushing it into it. Then add two chocolate sprinkles by pushing them in as well. Nice quick little snack for a pick-me up in the afternoon.
I always have loved this time of year because we get to consume candy corn. I love candy corn when it is made of real honey instead of cheap sugars for sweetness. This is also done very quickly and is a great snack – Bananas and Candy Corn!!!
You can use a ripe banana and insert the tips of candy corn into the banana. You can also use peanut butter over banana and then insert candy corn. The peanut butter adds two import factors: It tastes better with peanut butter and it helps keep the banana from going bad quickly since air is kept from it.
