Yesterday my sister and I spent the day with three of my nieces. We had a ball together…they’re such dramatic, sweet kids. They have such big imaginations and make up such wild stories, which make me laugh so hard.
We went for a long walk outside (seriously, it was almost warm!) and spent some time at the park. I brought along my camera and took some pretty cute pictures of them. I love it when you catch a laugh or a smile that wasn’t meant for the camera.
Once we got in from the great outdoors, I decided it would be fun to have a tea party. So while the younger one took a nap, the two oldest girls and I made some bite-sized snacks. I scrounged their cupboards and fridge to see what we could whip up…something sweet and then something healthy. It’s all about balance, right? Besides, you can’t have a tea party without something naughty to nibble on.
So we made Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites
- 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- A small handful of peanut butter or butterscotch chocolate chips
This is the most kid-friendly thing ever. You simply plop little balls of PB onto a tray lined with wax paper. Melt some chocolate chips for a minute in the microwave or stove and spoon it over the PB. Crown the little bites with a butterscotch chocolate chip. Throw in the freezer for 15-30 minutes. They taste just like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Amazing.
While the little chocolates hardened in the freezer, we set out to make mini fruit shish-kabobs. I simply cut up very small pieces of orange, cucumber, and grapes and threw some toothpicks on the counter. The kids had a great time making little arrangements on the toothpicks, layering the colours, and poking the fruit through.
Then we set the table and the girls dug out a “bweakable” tea set.
“…So we have to be vewy careful.” One of the girls informed me.
The littlest one finally woke up and the girls scurried around to get dressed up for the party. It was so adorable. We got out some apple juice and had a lovely time.
It was such a special day…I love my nieces.
