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