The minute the grandkids walk into our house, we hear, “Hi Mimi and Pappy!”  If we are lucky we get a kiss and a hug and then the next phrase that comes out (usually from Max) is, “Mims, I want a snack!”  I always keep a snack bowl full of fun snacks…some healthy and some not so healthy.  However, when the kids are coming over to spend the day, you have to step it up a notch and make special treats.  We like to bake together, but today was hot and sunny, so yes, it’s time to spend some quality time outside…POOL DAY!  So we need an easy snack that we can set outside and reach for whenever that hunger pang strikes.

This is such a quick and easy way to satisfy those little snackers.  Sneak in a few “healthy” items, add some salty and sweet, put them in a pretty bowl and voila….you have some smiles on your grandkid’s faces (and you don’t have to keep running indoors for something different because there are so many options for their little hands to choose from.)
