Valentine Bee Mine Fruit Snack For Kids

Make Valentine’s Day extra sweet this year with this Valentine Bee Mine Fruit Snack For Kids! This adorable fruit bee snack is easy to make with pineapple slices, strawberry wings and a bit of chocolate.

This super-cute, heart-themed snack is the perfect fresh fruit antidote to a candy-filled holiday filled with candy. Though fruit always includes a bit of sugar, they’re ALL natural. And both the pineapple and strawberries add important vitamins,  antioxidants and more to your kids’ diets.

I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can use any kind you like! Dark chocolate would take away a bit of the sugar, or would work well for a kid-made Valentine treat for adults!

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 2 pineapple slices
  • 4 sugar google eyes
  • 1/2 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 strawberries

Instructions

Step 1. Line a tray with parchment paper and freeze your pineapple slices for at least 30 minutes. This helps the chocolate not get messy when you add it.
Step 2. While the pineapple is freezing, melt your chocolate chips with 1 tsp of vegetable oil in a microwave safe bowl, 25 seconds at a time, stirring until melted.
Step 3. Remove your pineapple slices from the freezer and dip one end. Add your googly eyes. Place back to the freezer for a few minutes to set. This shouldn’t take long as they were in the freezer to begin with.
Step 4. In the meantime pour the rest of your melted chocolate in a sandwich plastic bag and snip off a tiny piece of the end.
Step 5. Remove the pineapples once more from the freezer and pipe chocolate lines down the slices. They should harden upon contact because the pineapples are cold. This is great for not leaving a runny mess.
Step 6. Cut your strawberries in half and make a V shape on each slice to turn hearts. Add to your pineapple bees on the plate as wings.
