These better-for-you fruit cups will be a big hit at your next party or school event!
I’m constantly looking for fun and healthy snacks to take to school parties, softball games, and girl scout meetings. Since my daughter’s girl, scout troop only has 8 girls, these flower fruit cups were the perfect meeting snack. Plus, the cookie flower fits in with their “Daisy” Troop! The cookie flower helps to make the healthy fruity cups a little bit more of a treat, adding a sweet sugary cookie.
I was able to make a dozen fruit cups with this recipe. If you need to make more, you can always use a smaller cup or the same size cup with double or even triple the ingredients. I used 6″ lollipop sticks and they fit perfectly into the cup with the cookie. If you ever have to cut lollipop sticks or bamboo skewers, I strongly recommend getting a set of diagonal cutters and stashing them away so your husband doesn’t swipe them! They were great for cutting the sticks and plastic zip ties on toys.
Some of my cookies did crack, but the other side stayed in tact and was fine, so I just flipped the sticks over to pipe the flowers onto the cookies.
You’ll need one tootsie roll per 2 cups to make the flower leaf. I suggest only microwaving 1 tootsie roll at a time since it hardens quickly.
