Holiday Party Platter with Frosted Fruit

Can I just tell you how busy we have been this month?! I cannot believe that Christmas is really less than two weeks away!!! I think it has really snuck up on us because we have been so busy. We have already been to 3 holiday parties and we have a couple more to go before the month is over. This weekend we are hosting the kids Christmas party at our house so I have been on the lookout for new recipes to make. We have decided that this party is going to be very simple......everybody is supposed to bring a snack item/appetizer, a dessert and then we will be ordering pizza from our family's favorite pizza place!  Hormel Foods sent me a sweet holiday tray that I am dying to use so I have decided to make the Holiday Party Platter with Frosted Fruit!!!

Holiday Party Platter with Frosted Fruit

What you Need:

1 Hormel® ham, turkey, and cheese party tray

2 pounds fresh fruit

1/4 cup pasteurized liquid egg whites

1 cup sugar


1.Frosted fruit can be made two days ahead and stored uncovered in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate.


1.Arrange meats and cheeses in outer edge tray compartments. Place crackers in center compartment.

2.Brush fruit lightly with egg whites. Transfer to wire rack set on wax paper. Sprinkle with sugar, using fingers to turn fruit, until lightly coated. Gently shake off excess sugar. Let fruit dry uncovered at room temperature about 2 hours.

3.Serve meats, cheeses and crackers with frosted fruit.

Can you say YUMMY!?!?! I have never heard of frosted fruit, have you?!
