It’s watermelon season – YUM! YUM! YUM! Here’s a fun way to serve this deliciously sweet summer delicacy while having a whole lot of nutritious fun…
1 golden delicious apple
You will need a triangular slice of watermelon per monster that is cut approximately 1 – 1 1/2 inches thick. Remove the rind. Cut the bottom to create a flat edge. Then cut the right and left side slightly to create your monster shape. Insert a craft stick in the bottom to form a fruit on the stick affect.
Wash the blueberries and cherries. Pit the cherries and slice them. You will need 1 cherry and 1 blueberry per monster. Using a toothpick, simply carve a circle the side of your cherry in the watermelon to insert the cherry slice as a Cyclops eye. Add the blueberry into the center. Cut another slice of cherry in half to create a semi-circle as the mouth. Using the toothpick again, carve a shape to fit the mouth of the monster and insert the cherry. Discard the toothpick; it’s only a carving utensil in this recipe.
Cut a slice of apple and cut the apple into strips. Place the strips into a snap and seal lunch-sized or snack sized bag, add cinnamon and shake. Insert two strips into the top of the watermelon to serve as horns.
