Do you have a home that encourages snacking, playtime, imagining, forts, and teepee’s? I’d like to think ours is. Not always, I surely miss the boat far too often. But, as a general rule I am all about having fun, eating healthy, and moving our bodies. In my opinion, the best summer days are a combo of all three. Often, though, it’s not easy to keep snacks delicious, interesting, nutritious, AND simple. If you are like me, you too, could use all the ideas you can get!
Today, I’ve got one of my favorite little snacks I use to feed our times of fun activity. It’s one of my favorite…
Have you ever had those little cracker treats made with butter crackers, smooshed with peanut butter, and dipped in chocolate? They. Are. Heaven.
But, they are quite tedious little things to make. All of that smooshing of peanut butter between crackers and then dipping in chocolate is time consuming. Very tedious. And not terribly nutritious, either. Today I’ve got the new and improved version…
I make these little treats for on the go, fast, snacks. Using Horizon Cheddar sandwich snacks makes them super fast and easy. And, the snacks are organic and a healthier option than the other version of these treats.
Simply dump your box of Horizon organic sandwich crackers on a cookie sheet and set a mini chocolate kiss on the top of each. Place the cookie sheet into a 350 degree oven just until they get melty (like my use of a non-word? Melty should be a word, don’t you think. Along with smooshing. That should be put in the dictionary, too.). Remove from the oven.
I personally love adding a dark chocolate chip to the top of the kisses and smooshing it down while the kisses are soft and warm. The combo of the dark and milk chocolate is one of my favorite flavors. This does take an extra few minutes and isn’t necessary. But gosh, I think it’s wonderful!
Sprinkle the top of the warm crackers with sea salt for an even BETTER flavor. Seriously. So good!
When the mini crackers are cooled, pack them into snack baggies for on-the go ease. Serve them with a dipping container of natural peanut butter for even more nutrition and taste. The combo of the butter crackers, cheese, chocolate, salt, and peanut butter is crazy good! The fact that these are easy to make is a bit unbelievable, I know. But I’m a believer in keeping it simple. Why over-think it, over-make it, or over-do it if it’s not necessary? Right?!?
Mini chocolate cheese crackers dipped in peanut butter and served with milk. It’s the ultimate in tastiness. It’s the ultimate in snacking. It’s awesome!
