|Glutino GF chocolate-covered pretzels, Ranch, GF pizza-mozzarella-olives, sugar snap peas w/carrots, pomegranate arils|
I already had a few organic carrot coins cut with a sakura flower veggie cutter, so I just added them in with the organic sugar snap peas.
As a last-minute addition, I put a few Glutino gluten-free chocolate-covered pretzels in a mini silicone muffin cup - not only do they look a bit like butterflies (which Z totally got!) but they helped fill up some empty space! Haha!
To make the skewers, I used a mini flower cutter on a slice of gluten-free pizza from Naked Pizza (yum! And everything there is all-natural - even the fountain drinks!) I made more flowers out of organic mozzarella cheese, and used a smallish straw to cut holes in the center, so the cheese wouldn't split like it normally does if I just jam it onto a pick. And some black olive halves alternated in, because she loves olives.
I had more than enough pizza and cheese to fill the butterfly skewer, but not enough for a second one (plus I could only find the one! Ack!) so I put the rest onto a smaller flower cupcake pick. Ranch dressing in the Mini Dipper instead of pizza sauce, since she likes it better that way.
