Aren’t they adorable?  They have been a favorite of our for many years, and we love to have them as snacks, or even for lunch. They take just a minute to put together, and the result is definitely worth the effort. Let your kids help out them together…they’ll love it.

I love doing fun and simple things for the holidays, and these are perfect!

Allergies? No worries! If there is a peanut allergy concern, you can substitute the peanut butter with cream cheese, chocolate frosting (chocolate chips for eyes!), cookie butter, or another nut butter if it’s an option. Any of those are super yummy too! I have a daughter that needs to be gluten-free, so I use gluten free pretzel sticks and crackers.
