Easy Halloween Monster Fruit Cups

 I love easy. 

Especially when it deals with food. 

I know some parents love making elaborate snacks for their kids. And while I admire those snacks, I know I'll probably never, ever make them. I just don't have the patience, nor do I get any pleasure from making a sandwich into a fish/fairy/dog. 

I do like to amuse my kids, so I knew they'd like these monster cups. 



Do they look Pinterest worthy? Probably not. I mean, the crafty moms can probably make them look fancier, and that's great, but again, I'm all about quick and easy. 

All you need are grapes, marshmallows, clear cups, and a sharpie. 

You put grapes on the bottom of the cup:





Then you add marshmallows in the middle and add more grapes on top:




Draw a face! Make whatever kind you want. 





Hand over to your kids! My daughter was like, "These are cute, but you didn't do that great with the face." 




No, I didn't, but oh well. You get the gist of what I as going for. A monster. Yay. 

So if you're looking for something simple, try these Halloween Fruit Cups. Perfect for parties. Kids can decorate their own cups and will most likely do a better job than I did.
