Tips & Suggestions

If your kids don’t like celery, spread the peanut butter on apple slices!

If you are dealing with a peanut allergy, sunbutter is a great substitution.

To melt the chocolate, place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir until the chocolate chips are melted. If necessary, heat in 10-second intervals or until smooth.
