This fun kitchen tool makes summer entertaining, kids’ lunchboxes, and mealtime extra fun.
Honeydew melon fruit balls
To make honeydew melon balls, cut the honeydew melon into a 1.5 inch slice and remove the seeds.
Use the fruit baller to make balls in each slice of the melon.
Pop a couple onto cute party picks or toothpicks and serve on a tray. To serve for brunch add a yogurt dipping sauce, or for dessert, add a chocolate dipping sauce.
Don’t let the rest of the honeydew melon go to waste though. Cut the remainder up (don’t forget to remove the peel) and make smoothies.
