Cinco de Mayo Apple Maracas

We love making Cinco de Mayo fun food and we came up with this super easy Maraca Apple Fruit Snack today! These would be fun for the kids at a Cinco de Mayo party and they only take minutes to make!!

Cinco de Mayo Apple Maracas
(makes 2)

2 Red Apples
2 Pretzel Rods

Cut around the apple in a zig zag shape using a small knife. Do another row and then pull off the peel with your knife. Cut the bottom of the core out using a knife and press in the pretzel rods!

Here is my little 6 year old amigo with his Apple Maracas!
