Simple Snacks and Lunch with Dark Chocolate Dreams!

My girls are big fans of Peanut Butter and Co's Dark Chocolate Dreams. They think they're getting away with eating dessert for lunch, and I get to feel good about offering them a healthy option with less sugar than peanut butter and jelly!

Wednesday, 7/21/13 - For Little E's Summer afternoon snack, I used a butter knife to stuff Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter into some raspberries, and served them with some sugar snap peas. I couldn't trust her with something messier, like apples to dip in peanut butter, or strawberries with peanut butter on the outside.

Big Sister was jealous of the chocolate-stuffed raspberries, but they're fairly labor intensive to make. And Z is old enough to be trusted to dip apples in a blob of peanut butter. So that's what she got!

Thursday, 9/19/13 - I cut the sandwich bread into small squares and peanut buttered each one before adding it to the long heart skewer cupcake picks. Just for fun, I added a little animal fork pick to Z's apples.
