Grinch Treats

I did not create this idea, I found it on a facebook group I follow about living a cozy , "hygge" life. (don't you love when you fall into a place where everyone is nice and supportive?)

I made these little fruit kabobs for my grandchildren whille they were down here for a day during the holidays. We put on the "original" The Grinch Stole Christmas movie, piled blankets and every pillow in the house on the flour for a snuggly good time. 

I made grnich cocoa bombs that my niece made for me , into fun cups of Grinchy cocoa, in grinch cups I found at a craft store. 

and I made them these fruit kabobs for snacks. Let's just say.. these snacks stole the show ! They couldn't get enough of them!  

Grinch treats

They would be perfect to take to holiday party or work gathering, or as a "work gift" for the crew placed into the break room.

Jan's Tips: 

the skewers i used where a bit to wide, and it would split the banana slices. (the kids didnt' mind , but I did)  and regular toothpicks use the entire picks, without being able to use a bit of it as a "handle" . you do want to find, toothpick's that are longer.. so like a small hors d'oeuvre picks. 

Smaller to medium strawberries are best. the larger ones are harder to eat off the skewers, adn don't look right with the scale of  the other fruits.

If not eating right away, I would spritz some lemon juice on the banana slices to decrease browning. 

Lets get cooking!
