|12 apricot||Apricot, dried|
|1 tbsp||Cream cheese, fat free|
|12 chip(s)||Dark chocolate chips|
|12 small||Pretzels, hard, whole-wheat|
Fish body: With an adult's help, make a slit on one end of each dried apricot. Note: I very lightly mashed the dried apricot before making the slit although this is optional.
*Carefully* insert the bottom of a mini pretzel. Again, carefully pinch the apricot around the pretzel to hold it in place. It may require a few takes to get the hang of it.
To make the fish eyes: pipe on a small dot of cream cheese (a plastic sandwich bag with a very [small corner] snipped off works well for this) and then press a mini chocolate chip or currant, tip down, into the cream cheese.
Mouth: Snip the fish's mouth with a knife or pair of scissors.
