These Christmas Cantaloupe Stars are the perfect holiday snack food--they're delicious, healthy, and so very fun! They're also easy to make: I usually cube melons for my kids anyways, and this only added a few extra minutes!! They're perfect on their own, but could also be combined in ton of different fun ways--wouldn't they be adorable atop a Christmas Tree Pancake? The possibilities are endless...of course, none of mine survived our 10:00 am snack-time! Here's the easy step by step:
- sharp "butcher's" knife
- small star-shaped metal cookie cutter
1- Cut the cantaloupe in half and scoop out the seeds.
2- Slice the cantaloupe so each slice is about 1/2 inch thick. The size is not critical, as long as it is not as thick as your cookie cutter.
3- Use your cookie cutter to punch out stars from each slice. Or let your children help!
4- Serve it up!!
5- You will probably want to use your knife to cut the extra melon off and serve it when the stars run out.
I may share at any of these parties!
