Inspired by Tiffany's snack, we made our own "Toss your nets to the other side" treat. :-)
These are very yummy- the perfect mix between salty and sweet!
See our "nets"? :-)
- Snyders window pane pretzels
- Hershey's Kisses
- Goldfish Crackers
How to Make Hershey Kiss Pretzels:
- Preheat oven to 350
- Place Pretzels on a cookie sheet
- Place one unwrapped kiss on each pretzel
- Place in oven for 1-2 minutes until kisses look shiny
- Remove from oven and press on goldfish crackers
- Place in refrigerator to speed the cooling process
The most time consuming part of this is unwrapping the kisses, which is actually a great job for little hands. (This still requires supervision unless you want it to become a job for little mouths as well).
When I took a picture of these Hershey Kiss wrappers, Lydia said "Mommy, you're taking a picture of garbage!". She's only 5. I didn't think she was going to figure out I was a weirdo until she was a teenager.
If you'd like to do this as an activity snack for vacation bible school or Sunday school, try this. Give the kids some pretzels, goldfish crackers, and blue icing. Then let them "catch" their own fish while you tell them the story. No oven required. :-)
When Family at the Foot of the Cross made a similar snack, they actually counted out 153 goldfish crackers because that's how many fish the apostles caught. Sounds like a fun counting activity to me, and a great way to learn a bible story!
You can find more fish crafts and activities for kids here.
So I have this obsession with buying unique dishes at thrift stores, and I bought this blue plate for $1 because it read very "Starry Night" to me, and I'm a total van Gogh freak. Isn't it the perfect plate for this cute goldfish snack?!
... and my husband thought I didn't 'need' this plate. ;-)
