Ladybugs on a Stick
What's your Take?

For potlucks that are kid-friendly, I naturally think of recipes that can be served in individual portions. These luscious ladybugs, from the kitchen of Barbara Beery, founder of Batter Up Kids, Inc. cooking school in Austin, Texas (www.batterupkids.com), are always a crowd-pleaser, and a snack parents won't mind their kids filling up on.

What you'll need

  • Red grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Honeydew melon

How to make it

  1. For each one, push half of a red grape onto a trimmed wooden skewer for the head.

  2. Next, push on a hulled strawberry body and score the back to create wings.

  3. For spots, use a toothpick to gently press mini chocolate chips, tips down, into the fruit. Arrange the skewers on a honeydew melon half.
