I picked up some of these Fruttare bars at Target in Strawberry and Coconut and decided to dress them up a little for the festivities. They have plain fruit bars too (without the milk) that come in lots of awesome flavors like Mango, Pineapple, Lime, Black Cherry…I could go on. These ones are like a milkshake on a stick and the Coconut is INSANE!!! They’re gone almost as soon as I can get them in the freezer.
Party favors don’t have to mean a lot of work or fuss. I love to make my parties memorable no matter how big or small, but I also want to enjoy the party instead of spending all day slaving away on the details, so I wrapped the fruit bars in some wax paper, tied it up at the base of the stick with some ribbon, and then taped a little “Chill Out” tag that I created (download is at the end of this post) to the stick with some washi tape. To keep them chilled until we were ready to eat them, I just stuck them in a little bucket of ice. Ten minutes, and some frozen treats you can buy at your local store, and you’ve got a fun, adorable party favor.
