Ice Cream Cone Fruit Sundaes

My “young chefs” class ended last week with an amazing party! I wanted easy party food that the kids could make entirely by themselves. I mentioned to my daughter that I wanted ideas like “ants on a log”, celery filled with cream cheese and topped with a row of raisins. Being a savvy and incredibly smart teenager, she immediately directed me to Pinterest. I was amazed by the magnitude of creativity and passion from so many different people. Beautiful photos, great ideas, and inspiring possibilities. I really just scrolled though the photos jotting down ideas as I went. Here’s what we made:Apple Doughnut Slices, Ice Cream Cone Fruit Sundaes and Trail Mix.

Apple Doughnut Slices: Cut round apple slices about ¼ inch thick. Cut the apple so the core is in the center of each apple slice. Using a small cookie cutter, cut out the center core. You should have a round, doughnut shaped apple. You might need to blot the apples dry in order for the spread to stick.  In a small bowl whisk together whipped cream cheese, a tablespoon or two of milk and 2 tablespoons of honey. If you want add a drop of food coloring. Spread the whipped cream mixture on the apple and top with colored sprinkles.

Ice Cream Cone Fruit Sundaes: Super easy and very cute these are perfect for a kids party or afternoon play date. Basically, cut up your favorite fruits and put them into an ice cream cone. You can even top with whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate.

Trail Mix: The great thing about trail mix is that you can customize it with your favorite treats. Also, if you’re lucky, you can add in a few new things for your kids to try. Here’s what we included at school (remember we are nut and seed free at school, but if your family is allergy free, please try adding things like pecan pieces, dried coconut, dried fruit pieces, sunflower seeds, etc.):

Kix cereal
Yogurt raisins
Dried cranberries
Chocolate chips
Mini pretzels
