Last weekend for our first holiday event we tried making Christmas Fruit Wands.

Last year we had a lot of fun creating our Holiday Veggie Platter for several events.
This year we know we'll make some of those again, but we also wanted to create something new.
So we came up with Christmas Fruit Wands.
1 star fruit
1 large red apple
1 large green apple
1. Wash and cut up the apples. Soak the apples in a little lemon juice and water for several minutes. Wash the grapes. Wash and carefully slice the star fruit into about 1/4 inch slices.
Big Brother was eager to help, so I put all the fruit onto a snack tray for easy assembling.
2. Start with the "pointy end" of the kabob skewer and thread fruit onto the stick, pushing it all the way to the bottom of the skewer. Continue with other fruit until the skewer is almost full. We had a lot of fun creating different patterns with the fruit.
3. At the end very end of the skewer, the point end, put on one slice of star fruit to make the top of the "wand."
4. We made a whole plate full, each one had slightly different fruit and color patterns.
These were a huge hit at the event we went to, all the kids made them quickly disappear.
Plus they were a lot of fun for Big Brother to help with because he could be really hands on with making this treat; as he told one person "we didn't even have to bake them."
We've got several other events planned that they'll be making an appearance at this year.
Do you have a party these would be a perfect treat for?
