Who doesn’t love a fun snack especially when it’s easy to make and yummy to eat? Some ideas look cool but end up being too elaborate or aren’t very kid-friendly to eat. Thanks to Ritz for sponsoring today’s kid-friendly snack. It’s a snack they can even help make, Peanut Butter and Banana Bumble Bees.
Peanut Butter and Banana Bumble Bees are so easy to make you can enlist your kids making it for both a special snack and fun activity. Assuming, of course, your kiddos love to help in the kitchen as much as possible like mine do.
I love finding new snack ideas that utilize ingredients we typically have on hand like peanut butter, RITZ Crackers, and fruit. The only special ingredient I needed to buy was the chocolate spread which is always a fun addition to our pantry.
Peanut Butter and Banana Bumble Bees Ingredients
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 12 RITZ Crackers
- 1 banana
- 1½ teaspoons chocolate spread
- 3 seedless red grapes, quartered
Peanut Butter and Banana Bumble Bees Directions
Arrange the RITZ Crackers on a plate and start by spreading peanut butter on each one. Even a preschooler can help with this if you use a plastic knife. Then slice a banana and cut half of the slices in half. The bananas become the bumble bee body and wings. Slicing the bananas is a skill older kids can help younger siblings with. Place one full banana slice in the center of the cracker and 2 halves on either side.
It can take a little practice but piping lines of chocolate from a plastic bag with the corner cut off is fairly easy. Let your kids work on fine motor skills and pipe chocolate lines onto the banana slices to create the look of a bee. Use a quartered grape to create the bee’s head. That’s it. Easy peasy peanut butter and banana bumble bees.
RITZ Crackers Fresh Stacks are always in our pantry, the convenient stacks of crackers make it easy as a grab and go snack for my boys to share. The RITZ Crackers stay fresher and are better portion controlled. Combined with cheese, it’s one of our favorite snack ideas. I even add them to my boys’ lunch boxes when I am making a fun bento box lunch.
