Grinch Kabobs

How to make Grinch Kabobs - Super cute and fun for everyone!
How about throwing together some simple Grinch kabobs for your next holiday get-together? These adorable little snacks are bound to get people talking. These are such a hit with the kids, they love making them and eating them, which means it’s also a fun afternoon activity to keep them occupied for a few quiet minutes before they eat them all.
One of our Christmas Traditions is to watch The Grinch. Both the cartoon and the Jim Carrey version. And you better believe I make up a batch of these to snack on, because, they are simply fun!
Even if your child isn’t a fan of these fruits, often times they will eat them, if they are the ones that put them together.
This also makes for a great low-sugar treat to serve at kids parties, no need for artificial food coloring or overly sugar-filled cookies and cupcakes, just serve these cute little Grinch kabobs!
If needed, they still look cute without marshmallows!

Grinch Kabobs
Green Grapes
Mini Marshmallows (Make your own marshmallows with honey)
Toothpicks (Buy bamboo toothpicks here)
Wash grapes and strawberries. Slice bananas and cut of the green end of the strawberries. Poke a toothpick into the top of the grape, thread on a banana slice, then the strawberry top, followed by the mini marshmallow.

    Those are absolutely adorable, and we watch The Grinch every year too. Thanks for sharing. I rarely dream up cute things like that so I really appreciate those who do and who share.

    Ooh, I want to do this. Although I might have to use peeled kiwis instead of grapes, just cuz I love them and need more excuse to eat them.

      Is there a way to preserve the fruit a few hours before the party?

      • Rachel Jones on 01/02/2022 at 9:16 pm

        I haven’t done it with bananas, but I’ve often given sliced apples a quick dip in lightly salted water and it keeps them from turning brown.

    How do you keep the bananas from browning?Lemon Juice???

    • Rachel on 11/18/2013 at 2:00 am

      We eat them too fast, but if I had to wait to serve them, I would dip them in lemon juice or salt water.

    I love these ideas. I’m putting together a round up of healthy festive ideas for the holidays. It will be published in mid December on Simply Healthy I was wondering if I can use the photo of the finished Grinch kabobs on my site with a link back to yours for the instructions. Thanks for your consideration.

    This is yummy yummy I love it. How do I prevent bananas from getting brown

    • Rachel Jones on 12/20/2017 at 2:55 pm

      You can give them a quick dip in salt water. But we normally just eat them right away. 🙂
