Sugar Skull Pear with Cream Cheese Crepes

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time:

INGREDIENTS

  • Crepe Toppings
  • 10-12 crepes (Store bought or make your own)
  • 1-2 pears
  • 1-2 kiwis
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • Filling
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz mascarpone
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Combine cream cheese, mascarpone, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in mixing bowl and whisk until combined. Electric mixers are recommend, unless you want a workout.

Lay each crepe flat, and spread on a thin layer of filling on each. Fold in half, then fold in thirds.

Slice pear as close to the core as possible to get the tallest slice.

Use your favorite cookie cutters to make fun shapes with the other sliced fruit. Pineapple and kiwi work really well for this.

Place pear at center of crepes for the skull, then decorate with the other fruit to make the facial expressions. Use sunflower seeds to make tiny teeth.

Decorate the rest of the crepes as deliciously as you want. We made an alternating pattern on ours, but this is a great step for everyone to get their hands on.
