Fall is in the air! The leaves are changing and the weather is just beautiful. Fall is my favourite time of year. The kids and I went on a great fall hike yesterday and saw all the beautiful colours of the changing leaves. The kids were in awe. I thought I would make us an easy fall snack when we got home. All I needed was a small leaf cookie cutter, some veggies, some cheese and a pretzel stick. I served some dressing on the side for dipping. Here are the directions:


What you’ll need:

  • Pepper slices – red, orange, and yellow
  • Cucumber slices
  • Marble cheese slices
  • Pretzel stick
  • Small container of dressing of your choice for dipping



1. Using your mini leaf cookie cutter, cut leaf shapes out of the peppers, cucumber and marble cheese.

2. Place a pretzel stick on your plate, and arrange the leaf shapes around the pretzel to make a beautiful tree.

3. Serve with dressing for dipping if your kids like it!

Enjoy this colourful and healthy fall snack. The kids loved it!
