Bert and Ernie Fruit Treats

For Big Bird's Birthday party, we also created Bert and Ernie fruit treats. (Yes, I know they need some work, but the kids loved them!)

I cut an orange in half and cut out a slit for the mouth. I cut the tip off a strawberry for Ernie's nose. I used a banana for Bert, and also cut out a slit for his mouth.  I used candy eyes for the eyes. A mini marshmallow would work too. I cut up pieces of orange for the ears on both Bert and Ernie, and also used an orange piece for Bert's nose. I drew on eyebrows and hair with black food gel. Then I placed a slice of strawberry in each of the character's mouths.
