Today’s snack is a perfect finger food to put out for the kids at a Christmas party.
These would also be perfect for a Christmastime sleepover, featuring popcorn, the Grinch movie, and these scrumptious little poppers.
Healthy, cute, and super fun, you know these little guys will be a hit.
Here’s how to make them.
Step 1: Collect your ingredients and assemble Grinches
(Depending on how many Grinch poppers you would like to make, you will need that many of the following):
-slice of white string cheese (at least 1/3 inch thick)
-banana slice (at least 1/3 inch thick)
-green grape (with bottom sliced off so it lays flat)
-melted chocolate. (1/2 of a Hershey’s bar, broken into pieces and microwaved until melted, stirring at 20 second intervals will be plenty to make up to 25 poppers)
Assemble each Grinch by sliding each piece up a plastic toothpick. I get mine from the dollar store. They come in a package of assorted colors with little hearts on the top. They are the perfect size, and not too sharp for the kids to eat off of.
Step 2: Melt Chocolate
Depending on how many poppers you are making, melt the appropriate amount of chocolate. I used a simple Hershey bar in this recipe.
1/2 of a Hershey’s bar, broken into pieces and microwaved until melted, stirring at 20 second intervals will be plenty to make up to 25 poppers.
Step 3: Pipe Grinch faces
Place your melted chocolate into a piping bag with a very small tip attachment;
or do it the easy way by using a ziploc bag with a tiny snip off of one corner to pipe your faces.
Make 2 eyes with frowning eyebrows above them. Next, make a wide smile with bumps and a little point at the bottom middle.
Step 4: Chill, serve, and enjoy!
Chill in the refridgerator for at least 15 minutes.
My little girls LOVED these guys. I made about 10 of them for today’s post, and they had to be cut off after 4 each! (They still hadn’t had their lunch yet)!
TIP: Pipe Grinch faces onto grapes and chill in advance if you want to work ahead and prevent the rest of the ingredients from being out in the air too long.
