Pear Rudolph, when a pear undergoes a Christmas makeover!
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer seems to be stuck in Finn’s head at the moment. He is constantly singing it (or trying to sing it) so I though this Pear Rudolph snack would be perfect today.
A Pear Rudolph is a quick, healthy and fun Christmas snack. I am not very creative when it comes to fun food. I enjoy looking as some amazing fun food creations on Instagram but never really attempt them myself. I’m all about easy and quick, I do think we eat with our eyes though. Just as many adults love beautifully presented food in restaurants, many kids love fun food creations. Finn has certainly enjoyed his Christmas themed snacks this month.
This is so simple to create. Start by chopping the tip off the pear and stick a raspberry on for the nose. I found some extra large juicy raspberries that were perfect for this.Use two blueberries for the eyes and carve some carrots to make the antlers.

- 1 pear
- 1 large raspberry
- 2 blueberries
- 1 carrot
- Slice the tip of the pear off and stick the raspberry on.
- Using a sharp knife carve two very small holes (for the eyes - see pic) and push in the blueberries
- Peel the carrot and slice length ways (around 30mm thick) to form strips
- Carve two antler shapes from the strips.
