Sweet and Savory Ritz Cracker Recipes for Kids and Adults: Hidden Strawberry and Avo-Cuc Green

Hidden Strawberry Appetizer (SWEET RITZ SNACK)

Avo-Cuc Green Ritz Cracker (SAVORY RITZ SNACK)

Make these snacks for numerous events. It’s an easy, bake-less snack to put together for 15 kids and more than 20 adults.

These little snacks celebrate Eclipse 2017! The circle shapes and craters within the Ritz Crackers create the perfect moon resemblance.  I made these as appetizers for 20 adults and snacks for 15 toddlers. It was an easy and did not require an oven. The cheap cost of the supplies was the best part about making this. It was a lot of fun making this beautiful ensemble of yummy fruits/veggies sitting on top of a whole grain cracker. Try this kid and adult friendly vegan snack that contains strawberry, avocado, cucumber, and dark chocolate. Please comment your thoughts below!

Savory (Avo-Cuc) and Sweet (Hidden Strawberry) Snacks/Appetizers

This serves many events as a snack for kids or appetizer for adults. Hand these out on a platter at a potluck, dinner party, or toddler play-date! It is the perfect appetizer for birthday parties of all ages.

I recommend preparing this the morning before your event. It is best to make this as close to the event start time as possible, as the ingredients can cause the cracker to soften and be soggy. No one likes soggy crackers!
