Melon Monsters by Jodie Fitz

-Watermelon

-Fresh cherries

-1 golden delicious apple

-Blueberries

-Toothpicks

-Craft Sticks

You will need a triangular slice of watermelon per monster that is cut approximately 1 – 1 1/2 inches thick. Remove the rind.  Cut the bottom to create a flat edge.  Then cut the right and left side slightly to create your monster shape.  Insert a craft stick in the bottom to form a fruit on the stick affect.

Wash the blueberries and cherries.  Pit the cherries and slice them.  You will need 1 cherry and 1 blueberry per monster.  Using a toothpick, simply carve a circle the side of your cherry in the watermelon to insert the cherry slice as a Cyclops eye.  Add the blueberry into the center.  Cut another slice of cherry in half to create a semi-circle as the mouth.  Using the toothpick again, carve a shape to fit the mouth of the monster and insert the cherry.  Discard the toothpick; it’s only a carving utensil in this recipe.

Cut a slice of apple and cut the apple into strips.  Place the strips into a snap and seal lunch-sized or snack sized bag, add cinnamon and shake.  Insert two strips into the top of the watermelon to serve as horns.
