Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

I’ve decided we need to start eating more snacks on a stick.* The kids had a great time making and eating these.

We use pepperoni that is not pre-sliced. The pre-sliced stuff often looks a deeper shade of artificial and is too thin. But obviously you can make due with whatever is on hand.

Slices of pepperoni
Chunks of mozzarella string cheese
Canned sliced black olives
Grape tomatoes

Thread pepperoni, cheese, olives, and tomatoes onto bamboo skewers. Serve.

*Note: I’m guessing bamboo skewers should not be put in the hands of most children under the age of 3, possibly 4. I cut off the pointy tips after assembly. A safer option might be lollipop sticks; pre-punch holes in the food and let the younger ones assemble on their own.

Yield: variable
Prep-time: 10 minutes or longer if the kids are assembling

  2. Love this snack idea, especially because kids can make any kind of “pizza” they like. Better yet, it can be used to introduce new flavor combos that can then be transferred to other foods.

    Can’t wait to try this out with my daughter…sans pepperoni ’cause she’s a vegetarian.

    This looks so good, and I bet it satisfies any pizza cravings easily. :) I’ve never seen unsliced pepperoni, but I haven’t really looked out for it because I’m more of an Italian sausage kind of a girl. ;) Which makes me think making this with another type of sausage would be really tasty…
