This might seem like kind of a silly post but something you must know about me is sometimes I am enamored with the simplest things! Today’s post is the perfect example of that! Another example is the Frozen Yogurt Dots that I did WAY back in March of 2012 (which MUCH TO MY SURPRISE went viral!) One never knows with these things :-)
I don’t know if these tiny tempting treats will evoke that sort of reaction, but I still think they are pretty special in their own right!
It all started when I decided to order some of these cute little vegetable cutters I found online. I didn’t really know at the time what I would DO with them, but since I have a penchant for miniature versions of just about anything (except paychecks! lol) I succumbed to their cuteness and ordered a set.
The first time I used them to cut out some cute banana shapes to use for my post about A Simple Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce. They were adorable and tasty but didn’t exactly seem worthy of an entire post.
All you do to make this crunchy currency is slice some carrots and cheese (I used Monterey Jack) roughly the same thickness, use the shape of your choice and cut the center out of the carrot slice, then use the same cutter and cut out a piece of cheese. Press the cheese into the carrot and Voila! an instant healthy bite!
I am pretty fond of both carrots and cheese but when you put them together like THIS, I am all over it.
So I made up a plateful of Carrot Coins and another plateful of Banana Flowers, topped with peanut butter and chocolate, and had a nice little afternoon snack with my “staff” – daughter Britta, daughter-in-law Kaitlyn & photographer/friend Anna. It was actually kind of funny to see 4 “grown women” oooo and ahhhh over these simple little bites. Imagine how your “littles” will react! :-)
How could those little fingers resist picking one of these up and popping it in their mouths! They will think what they are eating is FUN, you will know it’s HEALTHY!
What kinds of “fun foods” do you like to make?
