These are best when served cold. Cooking time is chilling time. You can remove the toothpicks or replace them with pretzel sticks when serving them to children.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 medium cantaloupe
  • pretzel sticks or toothpick


  1. Cut ham into 1" wide strips, and cut the cantaloupe into cubes.
  2. Wrap a strip of ham around each cube and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Chill and serve.

This is genius! Making a dozen or so different appetizers for a pool party tomorrow, so I was looking for quick and easy and this was perfect. So simple, tasty and healthy. I used deli thin sliced ham and used two strips of ham per cantaloupe cube. I also used the pre-cubed cantaloupe. They were a little chunky so I did cut them in half. Made them tonight and can't stop eating them. I hope there's some left for tomorrow. Glad I tripled the recipe!
