Ladybugs On-A-Stick

Makes 12 ladybugs


Ladybugs 12 seedless red or green grapes
12 (6- to 8-inch) wooden skewers
     or colored toothpicks
12 whole strawberries with stems
1 package mini-morsel chocolate chip

Place a grape on a wooden skewer, sliding it all the way to the end of the stick. This is the ladybug's head. Next place the strawberry on the skewer, stem end first, and slide it down to touch the grape. This is the ladybug's body. Lay the ladybug down and carefully push the pointed ends of several chocolate chips into the strawberry to make the ladybug's spots.

Now you have a ladybug on-a-stick!
