Kids with summer birthdays always throw the best parties, and there’s nothing like a pool party to have some great fun in the sun. Hickory Farms has compiled some suggestions for delicious poolside snack recipes your young ones will love.
- Party food doesn’t have to be full of sugar. Give your kids a boost of the natural energy they need with Quick Kebabs. Alternate pieces of fruit, cheese and sausage on wooden skewers and serve on a platter. Our Orchard’s Bounty Gift Basket has plenty of fresh fruit, cheddar cheese and summer sausages to make this a hearty snack. You can also include some sweet treats from our Dried Fruit Collection to add some interesting textures.
- Easy-to-make Frogs on a Log is a delicious treat that balances healthfulness with savory flavors. All you have to do is split celery stalks and spread the center with Hickory Farms Garlic Mozzarella or Garden Vegetable Cheese Spreads. You can also place some sliced green olives with pimento on top of the spread for a nice contrast in flavor.
- Mini Rice-Cake Stacks are a yummy, crunchy creation that keeps kids’ energy levels high without a lot of empty calories. Simply spread apple cinnamon rice cakes with peanut butter or Nutella and add some banana slices. Top with another rice cake for a kid-size sandwich they can munch on when they climb out of the pool.
- During the summer months, it’s just too hot to fire up the oven. But you can make these No-Bake Cookies in just 10 minutes. Use finely ground graham crackers, raisins, honey, peanut butter and unsweetened coconut. This recipe makes 16, so you can double or triple as needed.
Hickory Farms offers up plenty of fabulous birthday treats for kids of all ages, including our Italian Ice Cream Truffles, which come a dozen to a box and feature a variety of scrumptious flavors, including Tiramisu and Cookies & Cream.
