The Cookstr Weekly: Peanuts, Cracker Jack & More Summertime Snacks

July 26, 2012

Summertime lends plenty of opportunities for light meals and quick bites between activities, so it’s useful to have an arsenal of healthy snacks on hand. Although the ice cream truck and bags of chips that proliferate most everywhere we go are tempting, they’ll pale in comparison to some of these homemade treats. Whether savory, like freshly baked chips and crackers with delicious dips, or sweet, like juice pops frozen in your freezer, a little extra prep for snack time (or time spent on finger food to serve with summertime mojitos and sangria) can go a long way towards making the season memorable. Try making s’mores with Kim Boyce’s Grahams – you could even make your own marshmallows, too!
