Turkey Fruit Snack

Since last month’s Jack-O-Lantern Fruit Cups were such a big hit, I decided to make a healthy Thanksgiving themed snack this month.  Family Fun Magazine once again provided my inspiration, this time for an adorable turkey!

Turkey Fruit Snack

Gobble me up!!


Arrange apple and clementine or navel orange slices on a plate as shown, and lay a cored pear half on top.  Use scissors to halve a dried apricot, then snip small triangles from each half and tuck them under the pear to form the feet.  Finally, use peanut butter or softened cream cheese to attach mini chocolate chip eyes, a nut beak (we used a cashew), and a dried cranberry snood.
