Christmas Grinch fruit kabobs are easy to make and make a great healthier alternative to all of the decadent desserts during the holidays. I made these fun little guys for the kids to enjoy and decorate for a snack. I also happen to be a huge Dr. Seuss fan! This recipe can double as an entertaining craft. You can use a tube of chocolate frosting and let kids draw their own angry Grinch faces on the green grapes.
This snack is a fun holiday recipe idea that I got from Pinterest. Most recipes call for a slice of banana for the base of the hat, but my husband hates bananas and I didn't have any in the house, so I used a large marshmallow and cut it into thirds with a pair of kitchen scissors. It worked out perfectly!
I love making healthy festive fruit kabobs. You can skewer green grapes, and honeydew melon for a festive St. Patrick's Day kabob, and this Peep Fruit Kabob post from 2014 is one of my most pinned Easter recipes! Clearly, people love enjoying fruit on a stick!
