Ladybug Fruit Snacks by Jodie Fitz

2 tablespoons Price Chopper whipped cream cheese
1 tablespoon Price Chopper honey
1/8 teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla Extract
Black gel frosting
Vanilla wafer cookies

Wash the strawberries & blueberries. Pat them dry before making any lady bug snacks.

Remove the greens from the strawberries by hulling them in a shallow manner. Discard the greens.

Stir the cream cheese, honey & vanilla together.

Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture onto the wafer cookie.

Slice a very thin piece of the strawberry off of the bottom to give the ladybug a flat surface to rest on. Place the flat edge onto the cream cheese covered wafer cookie.

Add either cream cheese or black gel frosting to one side of the blueberry & stick the blueberry to the larger end of the strawberry where you removed the greens.

Use the black gel frosting to add a line down the center of the strawberry, dots on the back of your fruit ladybug & eyes on the top of each blueberry.

    1. I love this post it is beautiful and made me well up. I always say I love my kids the same, but there are special bonds, like your first born, your first boy. I have different bonds with my children, and I feel similar about my 1st, we went through so much together.Great post![]
