Making the Grinch fruit kabobs is super easy.  No cooking is needed, and you can assemble them in 5 minutes flat!  Make them no longer than 1 hour before the party to avoid browning of the bananas.

Grinch Fruit Kabobs Ingredients

Here’s what you need: green grapes, banana, strawberries, mini-marshmallows and toothpicks.  First, slice the banana into thin rounds.  Then cut the bottom off the strawberry.  Next, stack the strawberry and banana together.  If the strawberry is large, you’ll see that it’s circumference is much larger than banana, and in this case, cut off more from the strawberry until the size of the strawberry bottom is the same as the banana round.  Put the toothpick inside the grape, then tread the banana, strawberry and mini marshmallow onto the toothpick, so the marshmallow is on the very top.

If the toothpick is too short and is not sticking out from the bottom of the grape, insert another toothpick into the bottom of the grape, so people have the toothpick to grab on to.  If desired, draw the Grinch faces using the edible writing gel pen. That’s all there is to making these Christmas Grinch fruit kabobs!
