Apple Pig Pal created by Lalaloula

ingredients

directions

  • Turn an apple on its side. Insert one end of a toothpick into a gumdrop and stick the other end (wider end facing out) into the bottom of the apple core to form a snout. *Note: For me it was easier to stick the toothpick into the apple then push the gumdrop into the toothpick.
  • Read *Note above: Break toothpicks in half and affix four gumdrops (wider end of gumdrops facing out) as feet. Set clove nostrils in the nose and clove eyes above the snout.
  • Twist off the stem, poke a hole with a toothpick, and insert an inch-long piece of shoestring licorice into the hole to make a tail. (I tried to make the tail corkscrew as shown on the Family Fun website but it didn't work well).
  • Finally, cut a piece of fruit leather into a rectangle measuring 1 by 1/2 inch, then cut again on the diagonal to form two equal-size triangles.
  • Affix upright triangles with small pieces of toothpick or icing gel to create ears, then bend over the upper portion of each triangle to cover the spot where the toothpick shows.

    I loved this funny recipe! It came together very easily and looked so cute! :)<br/>I had to make some changes to the recipe due to dietary restrictions: Instead of gumdrops I used grapes and for the ears I also used grape pieces. That way my pig didnt look as pink as yours but it was still very cute.<br/>THANK YOU AND TASTY SO MUCH for sharing another fun treat with us!<br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #27 October 2010.
