After School Snacks

Its that time of year again when kids are going back to school, the weather is beginning to cool down, and people are wanting one thing.... snacks! So I decided for my first post I would give some fun ideas for snacks. Whether you have kids to entertain after school, all day long, or you're like me and you just like to have a good snack, these will be sure crowd pleasers. Enjoy!

Crunchy Monkey Peanut Butter Banana Sticks
soooo yummy, soooo easy, and even fun to eat...
Applesauce Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
truth be told I've had these for breakfast. They're delicious and healthy!
Fruit Kebobs
For an elegant twist to an older crowd, cut out the peanut butter and try dipping the fruit in different chocolates

And some "originals" (although I'm sure they've been done a hundred times...)
Sushi for kids!
just use any tortilla or wrap, roll it out and spread cream cheese over the whole thing, cover it with one layer of your choice of cold cut meat. Roll tight and cut it up into slices. Serve it with chopsticks for some added fun =)

Personal Pizzas
Always a hit! Whether you use bagels, english muffins, or tortillas, you can pile it high with sauce, cheese, and any toppings you like. Just put it under the broiler on high for a few minutes and you'll have pizza before you know it!

of course the regulars will always be good... ranch, peanut butter, yogurt, etc. but try using a fun, easy fruit dip like the one below. Give your kids toothpicks or stemmed cherries to make it more appealing.
fruit dip:
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs brown sugar
