This tropical-tasting appetizer is fun for kids to make as well as eat! Longans, a member of the Lychee family, are also known as Dragon Eyes. You’ll see why once these treats are made!
If Longans aren’t available, create a similar effect with Grapes and Pomegranate Arils. Slice green grapes in half, cut a tiny slit in the center, and push a single pomegranate aril into the grape. Then push the grapes into the passion fruit. Make the eyeballs “scream” and garnish with finger lime caviar for an extra spooky, delicious treat.
Passion Fruit is ripe when fragrant and outer skin is slightly wrinkled. To ripen, place in a paper bag for a day or two. The more wrinkled; the sweeter. Carefully cut with a serrated knife.
