Stick with What Works: PB&J on Skewers

The perfect summer snack!The perfect summer snack!When it comes to snack time, I always have to put my thinking cap on and present snacks in different forms to entice my 4-year-old. One of the most popular presentations is serving food on sticks. Skewers and toothpicks with the pointy tips cut off are a great way to get the kids excited about a snack. This time, I decided to surprise my son by making Mickey peanut butter pinwheel skewers with appetizer picks and adhesive-backed dimensional stickers. The snack was such a hit that I will definitely be using this presentation to serve fruit and vegetable snacks.

4 sandwich bread slices.
4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
4 tablespoons strawberry jelly
4 appetizer picks
4 assorted dimensional stickers

1. Decorate appetizer picks with dimensional stickers. Set aside.

2. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices as much as you can. Cut off crusts.

3. Spread one tablespoon of peanut butter and one tablespoon of strawberry jelly on each slice.

4. Carefully roll each slice into a spiral. Slice into four pieces and insert appetizer pick to fasten the pinwheels closed.

5. If your appetizer picks are made out of wood, clip the sharp end with scissors. Serve and enjoy!
