I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I found it on Pinterest, the vast land of handy crafts and recipes. I find the site very helpful when trying to impress others. I was looking for a healthy idea for my daughter's Christmas party for her dance class.
Every year parents are asked to bring a snack. More often than not, the table is covered with cookies, brownies, candy, and other sugary treats. I didn't want to be the kill joy dad, but I do like to find healthier options for events like these when I can. That's when I came across Grinch-Kabobs.
They're super easy to make. Start with a tooth pick. Add one white grape (the ones that look green, but they're technically white), a sliver of banana, a slice of strawberry, and a miniature marshmallow (cut in half). When the four things are put together they form what looks like the Grinch's head. I saw some crafty people who added eyes and a mouth, but I didn't have the time or the patience to try it.
I think everyone at the party enjoyed the treats. Sure they weren't something dipped in chocolate or fried or covered in sugar, but they did taste good and looked pretty awesome. I did something similar, but not as healthy at the Halloween party with my Puking Pumpkin and chips. But if you're looking for a quick snack for your next holiday party, these are easy and pretty inexpensive to make.
