Check out this apple face I made for the kids.
This lady is ready for her close-up!
Apple Face Cheesehead
- Frigo® Cheese Heads® String Cheese
- Green bean
- Sliced cheese
- Using a paring knife, cut two holes for the raisin eyes, a nose big enough to fit the end of a string bean, and a triangle shape for the mouth.
- Place the raisins into the eye sockets.
- Cut the green bean in half and insert it into the nose hold.
- Cut a triangle shape out of the cheese slice and insert it into the mouth area.
- Use a skewer to poke holes around the top of the apple, above the eyes.
- Pull off string cheese pieces and squish the end into the skewer holes to serve as hair.
String cheese is one of our go-to snacks for the boys. On days when they're being picky, a stick of cheese can always be counted on to get some nutrition into their bellies.
Saputo Cheese USA, Inc asked me to make a recipe with their Frigo® Cheese Heads® String Cheese and I thought of this apple face after contemplating the nickname of those cheese sticks. Cheesehead. Head of cheese. Tiny head…made with cheese.
Sometimes I seriously question the way my brain works.
Nate said I should have used a non-organic apple so it would look a little more plump and…well…happier. I think my smallish organic pick lends well to the apple face vibe I was going for. She looks a little witchy, don't you think?
String cheese hair is pretty much the best idea I've ever had! The kids asked why her strands were sparse and I said it's because she's going bald like their great grandpa, GG Pa.
They totally eat up my cheesy jokes.
Get it? EAT up! Cheesy jokes!
I may be scarring my children's sense of humor for life.
