A basket with a fruit bouquet
The thing is very simple - you only need a few fruits, a little imagination and patience and believe me - children will love fruits that they might not normally eat !!! or surprise a friend with a slightly different birthday bouquet, or simply beautify your festive table….
- Wash the strawberries but leave them the green part. Dry them well.
- Melt the chocolate in a steamer or microwave with the addition of a little oil, then dip the washed and dried strawberries that you previously pricked on a skewer and leave them to harden the chocolate. When the strawberries are firm, you can decorate as desired - black and white chocolate and vice versa.
- Peel a pineapple, cut it into rings and cut the flowers with a flower cutter.
- Clean the melon and use a ball-making device to remove the balls.
- Pierce the pineapple flower with a stick and then place one ball on top of the stick.
- Place the washed head of lettuce in a basket (or bowl in which to make the arrangement), tear off a few leaves and arrange them around.
- Also "list" the grapes on sticks.
- Arrange the "flowers" in the basket first, and then the rest of the fruit. Arrange according to your own wishes and imagination.
- You can also add melon cut into slices and pierced with a stick, oranges sliced into slices, strawberries without chocolate… there are countless variations!
I "picked up" the idea on the net, it's very simple and I won't even talk about the impression it leaves on others. So my kids ate a melon for the first time that they didn’t even want to try before.
