DOLLAR STORE "NO FAIL" SNACK MIX
4 cups popped pop corn
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup rice snack mix from Dollar Store
1/2 cup broken chocolate covered pretzel pieces
1 tbsp baking cocoa
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Mix all the snack ingredients. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients of the seasoning. Sprinkle the seasoning over the snack mix. Toss everything together until well mixed.
APPLE SNACK BUFFET
Fun way to enjoy apples for kids and adults. Great with bananas as well!
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup cheerios
1/4 cup any type of crushed nuts
1/4 cup granola
1/4 cup crushed pretzels
4 cupcake liners
Slice the apples and fill a small bowl with peanut butter, lay them out on a plate and fill cupcake liners with fun toppings! I used cheerios, nuts, granola, and crushed pretzels. I'm sure you can come up with your own toppings that your kids will adore! Eating the apples are almost as fun as making them. Just dip the apple slice in the peanut butter, and add your favorite topping. If there are nut allergies, use caramel or yogurt instead of peanut butter. There are so many combinations, it's all up to your imagination!
CROISSANTS W/ BROCCOLI & MOZZARELLA
1 can of croissants
6 string Mozzarella sticks
1 cup of fresh broccoli cut up in small pieces
Unroll the croissant dough. Place the a quarter (or more) of the cheese stick on top and sprinkle with broccoli pieces. Roll up the croissant and bake according to package instructions. You can also try with spinach and other veggies.
