As mentioned earlier, this month we are highlighting recipes that are fun to make with your kids. At Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals we are big fans of sweets, but we understand that we also want to stress the importance of eating all your fruits and vegetables. Today’s recipe, courtesy of Disney’s Family Fun website, is a fun way to introduce a fresh fruit snack.
How cute are these Strawberry Mice?
All you need are some strawberries, mini chocolate chips, black icing, red licorice whips, almond slivers, a wedge of cheese and a toothpick.
For each mouse, slice a small portion off the side of the strawberry so it will sit flat.
Press a mini chocolate chip in the tip for the nose, if necessary use a dab of icing to secure it in place.
Add icing eyes and press two almond slivers in the top for ears.
For the tail, use the toothpick to carve a small hole in the back and insert the licorice. Serve them up with small wedges of cheese.
These cute little mice are a great mid afternoon snack and your little ones will love helping you put them together.
