Grinchy Fruit Kabobs

I saw a picture of these online (without any tips, directions, or a name) and have now made them for two occasions. They were a hit both times. The first time was at a Christmas party for our teen homeschoolers group and the second was at our special needs all-star cheer team’s holiday party.

I have included directions that I came up with while duplicating these. I also learned this through trial and error that it is so much easier to use a bit longer toothpicks when making these. They also look better, in my opinion.  I used these toothpicks the second time and recommend these or something of similar length.

  1. Green grapes
  2. Strawberries (cone-shaped and not too big)
  3. Bananas (straighter bananas work best, sliced)
  4. Mini marshmallows (cut in half)
  5. Toothpicks (4 inch if possible, I use these)
  1. Wash and allow the grapes and strawberries to dry. Decide how many Grinchy Fruit Kabobs you will make as you are doing this.
  2. Prepare your ingredients putting them into an assembly line fashion as you go.
  3. Cut the mini marshmallows in half with a paring knife, sit aside.
  4. Slice the top (end with the stem) off of each strawberry, sit aside.
  5. Slice the bananas. When I made 24 or 40, I used part of two bananas both times.
  6. Assembly your Grinches in this order: green grape (go through the dot where stem was), banana slice, strawberry with the point facing up, and half of a mini marshmallow.
  7. Arrange them on your plate and cover if not serving immediately. If it will be awhile, I recommend getting everything prepped and in an assembly line except the bananas. Keep the marshmallows in a closed baggie so they do not dry or harden. When it is closer to time, slice the bananas and assemble.
