Eatable Christmas Candle

1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon marshmallow creme

1/2 teaspoon maraschino cherry juice

1 banana

lemon juice

1 slice pineapple

1 maraschino cherry

  1. Mix cheese, creme, and cherry juice; set aside.

  2. Cut off both ends of banana, roll in lemon juice, and stand in center of pineapple ring on plate.

  3. Dab cheese mixture on top of banana so that mixture will drip down sides, like melted wax. (Use any leftover mixture at bottom to help hold banana in place.)

  4. Place cherry on top for flame; refrigerate.
