Appetizers for kids

Why should grownups have all the fun appetizers? These kid-friendly twists on snacks are a fun switch from the usual after-school options.

  • Sprinkle cheese on a pita and broil until golden and melty. Slice into wedges and serve with Prego® pasta sauce for dipping.
  • Spread cream cheese on a tortilla and fill with salami or vegetables, roll tightly, slice into 1-inch-thick rounds. Attach each tortilla roll to a baby gherkin using a toothpick to make little snails.
  • Melt chocolate and peanut butter together with a little vegetable oil to make a fondue. Serve with cut-up fruit, like bananas and apples, marshmallows, pretzel sticks and graham crackers for dipping (grownups like this too!).
  • Wrap smoky hot dogs in crescent rolls with American cheese and bake—perfect for a slumber party!
  • Serve deviled eggs with different garnishes to fit the season. For example, at Halloween, top them with sliced olives to make “eyes;” in the summertime, use small triangles of bell pepper to make sails on a boat; or, stick two thin slices of radish or cucumber in them to make springtime butterflies.
