A Christmas Break Snack

The kids are out of school and you need to find a few extra snacks.  While searching the web for something else (what, I can't remember), I found a cute new take on the ants on a log recipe.  I thought this was the perfect Christmas break snack.  It's quick, easy and nutritious. With a little extra help, kids can make this snack.  To go along with this snack, how about a cup of hot chocolate. 

Pears in a Pod

4 stalks of celery
½ cup peanut butter
2 pears, cored and cut into cubes

1.  Spread the peanut butter into the center of the celery stalk. 
2.  Place pears on top of peanut butter.  Cut celery into desired length and serve.

Hot Chocolate

Serves 1.

Combine 1 tablespoon cocoa and 1 tablespoon sugar in a mug.  Pour in 1 cup hot low fat milk.  Stir to combine and serve. 

If you want to mix up your hot chocolate, here are a few suggestions.
  • Peppermint candy
  • Marshmallows
  • Vanilla flavoring
  • Cinnamon
