Equipment

  • Wooden skewers
  • Small plastic bag

Ingredients

  • 6 cups assorted fruit grapes, blueberries, strawberries, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, apple, watermelon, banana
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 package edible flowers such as violas and pansies optional
  • 1 bunch fresh mint optional

Instructions

  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave on medium power in 15-second intervals until melted. Stir between each interval to prevent the chocolate from getting too hot.
  • Place melted chocolate in a ziplock bag and cut a tiny piece off the corner. You will be using this to make the eyes, spots, wings, and insect legs, so make sure you only snip off a tiny corner.

Caterpillars

  • Place grapes or blueberries on the skewers in groups of five. Use the chocolate to make eyes.

Beetles

  • Cut a strawberry in half for the body and use a grape as the head. Use the chocolate to add eyes on the head and spots on the body.
  • To make the legs, place wax paper on a small plate and squeeze some chocolate onto the strawberry, continuing off the berry and slightly onto the wax paper. Be sure to make a nice, thick layer, and don’t make them too long. Short is easier to manage!

Flying Insects

  • Cut melon into a rectangular shape for the body. For the head, use a grape, blueberry, or melon cut in a small circle.
  • Use flowers or mint to make the wings. Pierce a hole in the side of the piece melon with the blunt end of a skewer. Place the flower or mint in the hole, and use the sharp side to secure it into place.

Apple Crawlers

  • Slice an apple and cut a small v shape out of the bottom center of the fruit. Use grape or blueberry for a head, and accent the body with chocolate.
