Perfect Super Bowl Addition!

Super Bowl is almost here!  Who are you routing for?

Can you think of a better way to present fruit salad at a Super Bowl Party?!  Here is the perfect recipe (secret is the vanilla pudding – no joke)   AND how to carve it!  I’m pretty proud of my attempt!

 Recipe

  • 1 can(s) pineapple chunks, in their own juice

  • 1 can(s) mandarin oranges, drained 1 bunch green grapes, halved

  • 2 bananas

  • 1 pkg strawberries, sliced however you want 1 box small box of vanilla instant pudding (jell-o brand only – others just don’t taste right)

  • You can also add other fruits that you like to this as you please.

Instructions

Did you know there was a site dedicated to Watermelon carvings? There is!!  That is where I got my instruction on how to make it happen!

  1. Using a round watermelon, slice off a piece approximately 4 inches down on the stem end. Set cut piece aside to use later for mouth guard.

  2. Make a curved cut from one side of the melon to the other to cut out the face portion of the helmet. Hollow out the entire melon.

  3. Take the piece that was set aside in step #1 and place cut side down. Place knife at the center of stem end and cut in half.

  4. Take one half of cut piece and draw mouth guard grid with a sharp pencil or thin marker as shown in picture. Remove flesh and using a small knife, cut out grid design.

  5. To assemble, place mouth piece on a plate. Place the helmet piece on top, pushing the mouthpiece ends towards the inside of the helmet. You may need to carve a little out of the helmet ends to fit the mouth grid comfortably.

  6. Fill with fruit salad.
