How to cut your apple into stars
The only other real secret I have to give away is the stars… fruit stars are simply apple slices cut into a star shape.

Then you can use a star shaped cookie cutter to get your shape or use your knife. Feel free to make heart-shaped apple slices too, it makes a fun surprise to let drinkers know you love them! 😉
Put it in a nice big jar!
Pour it into cute mason jar cups!
