Clementine Butterflies

-Allison(doodles) 018

If you need to bring a little bit of spring into these cold winter days, these little cuties should help you do it.  All you need to make them are clementines and celery sticks.

Sorry, I don’t have any pictures on how to make them :(, I’ll just have to try and tell you.


1.  Peel a clementine and pry it apart into two halves.

2.  Take two clementine sections from one of the halves, and partially pull them open starting from the side that faces towards the middle of the clementine.  This is very important, if open the sections the wrong way it won’t look like a butterfly.  Make sure not to pull the sections apart all the way.

3.  Cut up a celery stick into smaller pieces and put one piece each in the middle of the partially opened sections for the butterfly’s body.

5.  Repeat to make as many butterflies as you want.

4.  Serve on a pretty platter.  You could have them hovering around fruit cut to look like flowers, do what I did and perch a few on orange slices, or think up your own arrangement.  Have fun making it pretty!

5.  Enjoy!



I hope you have fun making and eating these delicious butterflies!
