Perhaps the only thing better than sweet, refreshing fruit salad is putting that fruit salad inside a bowl made of fruit. Environmentally friendly and simple enough to do for a crowd yet still unique enough to wow others, this recipe will be  a hit at your next brunch or cookout!

Start by slicing the top off of an apple (choose one that sits up well or shave a bit off the bottom so that it sits flat) and then mix up whipped topping with your favorite, in-season fruit. Fill the apple cups with these, and arrange mandarin orange segments on top to create a fan. Fold a piece of chewy candy into a butterfly, secure it to a carrot with a toothpick, and use this as a sweet garnish for your fruit salad. Enjoy!
