Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut the ends off of 8 medium ripe kiwi, and use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin. Slice 1 large cantaloupe in half. Scoop out and discard seeds. Use a medium ice cream scoop to scoop out melon rounds. Have 8 marshmallows on hand. Starting with 8 (8 to 10-inch) skewers, thread one kiwi onto each skewer, followed by a marshmallow and finally a melon ball.

  • Blot the kiwis and melon rounds with paper towels. Add edible candy eyes (such as Wilton brand) using a little nut butter or honey on the backs of the eyes as glue. Cut the ends off of green grapes to use as noses, if desired. Using an edible pen, draw spooky faces on the marshmallows.

Create a Crafty Snack

Kids will love to build these fruity treats for a memorable playdate pastime. Don't be surprised if a few marshmallows vanish (poof!) along the way.
