Delicious Snack Toppers

I'm one of those people who prefers to have lots of smaller meals throughout the day, rather than three big meals. In efforts to keep my snacking on the healthier side, we started making "snack confetti" that can be made and kept on hand to top anything (from sorbet to yogurt to toasts) to add a little extra flavor, texture, crunch! In partnership with Curate Snack bars, we made mixes inspired by the brilliant combinations of unexpected ingredients in the bars.

Since it's easier to make a batch of toppings at one time and store them for later, color-coded jars make for a fun way to store them! Here's a super simple how to...

To make them, you'll need: 

-jars

-acrylic paint 

-paint brush

-acrylic paint sealant

-contact paper

 

Here's how:

1. Cut out a circle stencil using contact paper (we did it freehand but you can use any circular object as a guide or cut out any shape you want). 

2. Place the sticker shape in the middle of one side of the jar and paint over the entire jar (you may need 2 coats to full coat it).

3. Let dry overnight

4. Once dry, carefully peel off the contact paper circle exposing the shaped window.

5. Spray sealant over painted area on jar.

Then fill your jars with the toppings you want to keep on hand—fruity, crunchy, sweet or savory. Inspired by the flavors of Curate Snack bars, we made these toppings:

1. Harmonious Blend - dried apricot, sunflowers seeds, freeze dried mango, and natural yellow sprinkles

2. Irresistible Dark Chocolate - freeze dried strawberries, white chocolate chips, pistachios, natural red and pink sprinkles

3. Salted Decadence - chocolate chips, granola, almonds, toffee bites

4. Sweet and Tart - almonds, freeze dried berries, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips

Which combination sounds like it would be your favorite? I'm partial to anything with chocolate in it!
