Mini Halloween Fruit PEEPS-za’s(aka fruit pizza)
Every year, a friend of mine has a big Halloween bash. Dressing in costume and bringing a dish to pass is a required! Last year, I dressed up as the crazy couponer. My hair was a mess, my make-up was all over my face, I had on my cereal branded shirt and my “purse” was FULL of coupons. People loved looking at my purse, which was made from a reusable grocery bag and I wrote “Gucci” on it in bold black marker. Everyone got a kick out of it!
I never like taking a repeat dish along, so I try to think up something new AND kid friendly. I recently couponed a bunch of sugar cookie mix and the idea of fruit pizza came to mind. I decided to go with individual cookies and put one of the new Peeps in Halloween colors on top.
To make these, I used:
- bag of Halloween Peeps
- red and green grapes-washed, dried and cut in half(I ended up cutting mine in half again because they were huge!)
- mandarin orange segments-drained and dried on paper towel
- Cool Whip Frosting-Vanilla flavored(regular Cool Whip would be good too, but I like the texture of the Frosting. You can find it in the freezer section near the Cool Whip.)
- baked sugar cookies
After the sugar cookies have cooled and your frosting has thawed, put a nice layer of frosting on your cookies. Place a peep in the middle and arrange fruit around it. That’s it! Super easy and delicious!
I almost didn’t get pictures because my 4 year old couldn’t wait to try them! His brother has to wait to get home from school for his. At least he won’t have to wait until the party!
