Frozen-Inspired Olaf Food Art
- 1 Uncrustables® Sandwich
- Kitchen scissors and knife
- Disposable pastry bag fitted with a small round decorating tip
- Extra large Red Delicous apple
- Small piece of provolone or American cheese
- Black bean or black olive
- Small carrot tip (about 1 inch long and ½ inch wide at the base)
- 2 banana chips
- 1 edible pea pod
- 3 raisins
- 3 or 4 thin pretzel sticks
- JIF® Hazelnut Spread
- 3 thin celery sticks (about 3 inches long)
- 1 large strawberry
- 3 blueberries
- 3 or 4 mint leaves
- Orange slice (about 2½ inches in diameter)
- Small (5/8 inch) round fondant cutter (optional)
- Small plastic sandwich bag and bag tie (optional)
Cutting should be done by an adult.
Take the Uncrustables® Sandwich out of the freezer and set it aside to thaw for 30-60 minutes.
Cut two round slices from the apple, one about 3¼ inches wide for the bottom of the snowman, and the other about 2 inches wide for the midsection. Set them in place on a lunch plate with the midsection overlapping the bottom and slightly left of center.
Optional: Cut the shapes out using the image as inspiration. We encourage you and your family to let your imaginations take over to create your own snow-riffic masterpiece.
Use the fondant cutter (optional) to cut out two cheese eyes or use a kitchen knife to carefully cut out two small circles. Cut out a rectangular cheese tooth (about ¾ inch wide and ½ inch high). Trim the bottom edges of the tooth to round them a bit.
Place the eyes on the sandwich, overlapping them slightly. Slice the black bean (or black olive) in half, and place one half atop each eye to serve as pupils. Slice the carrot tip in half vertically. Set one half (cut side down) in place for the nose, positioning it so that an upper corner overlaps the eyes and the tip points downward.
Spoon some hazelnut spread into the pastry bag, and pipe thick eyebrows and a thin Olaf grin onto the sandwich. Set the cheese tooth in place just below the grin line.
Optional: Use a plastic sandwich bag instead of a pastry bag. Put a couple spoonfuls of hazelnut spread in the sandwich bag and carefully cut the very tip off of a corner. Make sure to close the top of the bag by twisting it and closing it with a bag tie.
Snip several thin strips from the edible peapod and tuck the ends under the top of the head to create a tuft.
Set the banana chips in place for the feet, and top the body with the three raisin “buttons.” For stick arms, tuck the end of a pretzel stick under each side of the midsection. Add a couple of short pretzel bits to the top of each arm.
Slice the strawberry horizontally to create three round flowers, and set the slices on the plate. Add a blueberry center to each. For the stems, trim the celery sticks to the desired length and tuck the tops under the flowers. Arrange a mint leaf or two at the base of the stems.
Place the orange slice “sun” in the upper right corner of the plate.
