What You’ll Need

lovebug snack ingredients

kix cereal

Ingredients (for 2 cups):

1 fresh strawberry

3 fresh blackberries

1 slice of mozzarella cheese

4 black currants

a large handful of Kix cereal


Heart-printed cupcake liners (or other decorative liners)

A kitchen knife (please supervise children if allowing them to slice)


How to Make It


1. Place 2 cupcake liners on a plate and fill them 3/4’s of the way full with Kix cereal.

2. Slice 1 strawberry in half and place each half, cut side up, on top of the Kix cereal.  Place a fresh blackberry in front of the strawberry slice for the head.

3. Grab your remaining blackberry and make a small slice to cut small circles off the fruit.  Take these small blackberry pieces and place 6 on each bug.

4. Finally, cut your mozzarella cheese into 4 small circles.  Place these circles on the bug for the eyes and add 2 black currants to finish it off.
