Apple turtles recipe
These cute little apple turtles are a sweet way to get your little ones eating their fruit. Get them to help you make them or just serve them up and watch them disappear.
- 2 green apples
- 6 green grapes
- 4 mini chocolate chips
Step 1. Wash apples and slice the base third from the apple.
Step 2. Place the base on a serving plate and slice 4 grapes in half. Arrange them as the turtle's flippers.
Step 3. Slice one third off the remaining 2 grapes and place as the heads.
Step 4. Using the point of a knife just puncture two holes in each head for eyes. Turn the chocolate chips pointy side down and press into the holes.
