Cut bread into circle shapes with a round cookie cutter or upside-down glass and make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Lightly pinch around the edges. Use graham cracker sticks for the legs and Reeses Peanut Butter Cereal puffs for the eyes. Adhere with small dabs of peanut butter. Great to serve at a holiday gathering or just a new twist for your child’s lunch during October. They’ll be crawling back for more!
Spiced apple cider
Nothing makes fall like the spicy aroma of hot apple cider. Here is a simple recipe to make your next autumn gathering a big hit! Just pour a gallon of apple cider into a large crock-pot and heat it up with a tablespoon of whole cloves and 3 cinnamon sticks. A spice ball works wonders for this, but if you don’t have one, just retrieve the cloves and sticks with a slated spoon before serving. Let it heat for a few hours, one at the very least. Serve with cinnamon sticks for guests to stir with. Enjoy!
