Strawberry Cars

Vroom!


I can totally make healthy things sometimes, I swear.

I originally saw these cars a month or so ago on Pinterest, but I can't find the original link, so if you know who made them, please let me know. 

I decided to recreate them with some instructions so you can make them, too. The boy was thrilled to see this little guy waiting for him after school, and your [insert loved one] would be equally thrilled. Plus they're perfect for year-end school parties if you don't want to get the little ones hyped up on sugar!




Strawberry Cars Recipe
Leanne Bakes

Ingredients
*how much of each ingredient will depend on how many you're making
Strawberries
Watermelon rind
Grapes
Chocolate chips

Directions
Cut off the sides of the strawberry so it lies flat on its side and its top is flat, too. Cut the front down if you want a more sloped car, depending on the shape of your strawberry. Save the pieces, though, and cut one so it becomes the back seat of the race car.

Use a large pastry tip (I used a Wilton 1M) to cut out watermelon rind wheels. Use a knife to cut the front wheel a bit smaller than the back. Alternately, just cut the rind with a knife to form the wheels. Place them beside the strawberry in standard wheel positions.

Melt the chocolate on half-power in the microwave (or use a double boiler), and dip half the grape to resemble hair. Place the grape on top of the race car.

Play, eat, and enjoy!
