Grinch Celery Snacks

Grinch Guacamole Celery

These little guys are too cute! I simply stuffed celery with YoQuiero! Avocado and Cream Cheese Spreads and guacamole, then used pimento from inside my green olives for eyes, then used a writing food gel to draw on a mouth, nose and eyebrows. I used black olives for the nose and mouth for one, but I will admit that using the writing gel was a lot easier. Then I used the celery leaves to give my Grinches fun hair 🙂
