Homeschool cooking: Graham cracker fruit faces

Children need at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables every day. These graham cracker dessert treats make achieving that goal a little easier. We made a little game out of it:

  1. I prepared a mixture of cream cheese, honey, and vanilla and spread some on half a cracker.
  2. Students selected their own fruit and then created a fruit face or fun design on their crackers. As you can see in the photo above, our students could also choose a cracker without the cream cheese concoction.

The end results: lots of giggles as the girls enjoyed their treats. Here’s the recipe:

FILLING: Spread filling on 1/2 graham cracker. 

  • 8-oz. pkg. plain cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp honey

FRESH FRUITS: Selections can vary. Choose the fruits that you and your family enjoy! 

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Mandarin oranges
