Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/4 of a carrot
  • Handful of currents or sultanas chopped
  • 3 strawberries
  • 6 grapes
  • 6 skewers

Method

Step 1

Cut the bananas into thick slices (approx. 9 rounds per banana) -

Step 2

Peel the carrot and cut into small triangular slivers for a pointy nose -

Step 3

Trim the stem from the strawberries and then cut in half. You should get two hats out of each strawberry -

Step 4

Cut the grapes in half. (We only used the smooth half and ate the stem end) -

Step 5

To assemble, thread three slices of banana on to each skewer followed by a strawberry hat and grape half. Gently press the currents into the banana slices to create eyes and the buttons on the body then add the carrot nose -

Step 6

Serve immediately -

Step 7

Tip: Chop everything up, place all the bits in separate bowls and then have the kids assemble the snowmen. -

Step 8

Safety note: Please be careful with using sharp skewers when cooking with children. If necessary cut or break off the pointy end to avoid injury. -
