Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart fruit arrangement
Fruit and cookie cutters are all you need to make this edible arrangement for the Feast of the Sacred Heart!
You will need:
- a Christmas tree cookie cutter
- a cross cookie cutter
- a heart cookie cutter
- a sharp knife
- 1 watermelon (any size)
- 1 mango
- a handful of blueberries
- a handful of small strawberries
- 1 nectarine
- a handful of pretzels
Begin by cutting thick slices of watermelon. Then use your cookie cutter to create the two hearts.
Do the same thing with the mango and your cross cookie cutter.
To create the flames for the hearts, use your Christmas tree cookie cutter on slices of nectarine. Cut the bottoms of the trees with the heart cookie cutter so that they will fit perfectly on top of the hearts.
We decorated the Immaculate Heart with a “crown” of blueberries and strawberries.
The sword piercing Mary’s heart is a mango cross, cut at the bottom, and inserted into the watermelon heart.
Break your pretzels into small pieces to create a crown of thorns on the Sacred Heart.
We used leftover slices of mango as rays shining from the hearts!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
