F Week- Apple Frog

Trip absolutely loved the apple frog I made him, not that I was surprised since it contains three things he will always eat: apple, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. The example I saw online used grapes as the legs, but without any on hand, I just used more apple.

Of course the eyes came off right away, although he didn't eat all of the marshmallows, which was just fine with me.

Once the eyes were off, I quickly swooped in and took out the toothpicks so that he could eat the apple.

This snack was such a hit that the next day, Trip asked for another frog. The second time around, I used one marshmallow torn in half for the eyes, which worked just as well. That also helped the chocolate chips to stick better. I have a feeling that these frogs will have to make their way to our table again sometime soon.
