Healthy Traffic Light Snack for Kids

If you have school age children you know how difficult it can be to get them to eat a healthy after school snack. Well I saw this on Facebook today and thought they were the cutest dang things...who wouldn't want to eat one of these stop lights? And as it happened, I had everything needed in my frig to make these.

What is used to  make these darling lights are as follows...

Celery stalks cut in 3 inch pieces
cream cheese
red, yellow and green bell peppers

The steps to make the traffic light treat...

ONE: Spread cream cheese onto the celery smoothly and clean the edges of the celery

TWO: Cut circles from your bell peppers using a metal Wilton frosting tip.

THREE: Pop the circle out of the frosting tip using a sharp knife.

FOUR: Place the circles on the the cream cheese.

FIVE: Skewer the celery with wood skewer.

And ENJOY!!!

Have a super weekend!
