Peanut Butter and Fruit Poutine

2014 Kids Recipe Challenge Winning Recipe: 3rd Place!  

Robert of Burlington says, “Kids love a delicious, healthy after school snack. When you mix peanut butter and honey together it makes your mouth water!  I could eat it everyday!”

This is an easy snack to get the kids involved in and creating with the use of their food imagination. Mix and match favourite toppings, like dried cranberries, raisins or diced dried apricots. For some added crunch try using your favourite cereal as a topper.
