Smile, A Fun Treat For Kids

I collect vintage cookbooks, craft & art books, and kid's craft & activity books. I randomly pull them from the shelves when I need inspiration for a project, for a class I am teaching, or for a fun activity to make with my eldest daughter. Yesterday, I found this simple snack, which we had all the ingredients for, and which I knew Quin & I could make together in a snap.

Apple Smiles
Makes 4

- one apple
- peanut butter
- mini marshmallows

1. Cut apple into 8 slices.
2. Spread peanut butter on one side of each slice.

3. Place 4-5 marshmallows on top of one slice. Press the other slice on top of that.

4. Have fun hamming it up for the camera. Then, eat!

Quin LOVES these. We made them after lunch then again after dinner so she could share some with Daddy...

I love it!! And we have all of those ingredients 2!! I'm back into almond butter lately as a peanut butter alternative so i may try them with ab as well.

Thanks for the idea!

Hi Serena! I made homemade marshmallows at Christmas but am looking for a "healthier", non corn syrup recipe, so will check yours out...

Hi Anne-Marie! Yes, for sure, almond butter would be great. We love all the butters, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, they would all be good!

Hi AG! Have fun and keep smiling :)
