Some of my best memories of school were at lunch time. Not only did I get to sit and eat with my friends, I’d sometimes find small tokens of appreciation from my parents hidden in my lunch box. Even the simplest “I love you!” note from my mom or dad made me smile and brightened up the rest of my day.
Parents love making their kids smile, and an easy way to do it is to stash one of these adorably friendly Monster Fruit Cups in their lunch box. I mean, c’mon? Who could resist those googly marshmallow eyes and silly smile?
If you want to pull out all the stops, this Monster Fruit Cup recipe has you store all that fruit in a plastic cup so you can write a small message on the top or side, too. Bonus points for Mom!
Even if you don’t pack a school lunch for your kids, these Monster Fruit Cups would make an adorable after-school or weekend snack — or an easy treat to share with all the kiddos at their little league game!
