Kidzworld Kitchen: Spring Break Munchables

Mar 21, 2012

Spring break is almost here and everyone is busy finalizing their plans! Maybe you’re headed out on an exciting road trip or just planning to spend a fun week hanging out with friends?

Whatever your plans are it will be handy to have some delicious snacks when the munchies hit.  Yummy chocolate peanut buttery banana trail mix and pizza muffins make great travel snacks and fruit kabobs will be perfect to have while playing video games or having friends over.  Have a super fun holiday!!

Monkey Trail Mix


  • 1 cup of banana chips
  • ¾ cup peanuts
  • ¾ cup cashews
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (or chocolate covered peanuts)
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips


  1. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mix
  2. Separate into small plastic bags
  3. Enjoy!

Pizza Muffins


  • 1 + ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 + ¼ cup milk
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • ¼ cup fresh or sundried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup sliced pepperoni or sausage (optional)
  • 2 tbsp finely fresh chopped basil (or 1 tbsp dried basil)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Using a paper towel, rub vegetable oil all over the inside of your 6-hole muffin tin to keep your muffins from sticking (Hint! If you only have a 12-hole muffin tin add a small amount of water to the unused cups so you don’t damage your pan)
  3. In a large bowl mix the flour, egg, milk, oil, cheeses, tomatoes, pepperoni and herbs. (Hint! Save a bit of the cheese to sprinkle on the top)
  4. Divide the mixture evenly into muffin pan and top with remaining cheese
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

Fruit Kabobs and Yogurt Dip


  • An assortment of fresh, washed fruits, such as bananas, strawberries, melon, grapes, mango and pineapple
  • Wooden skewer sticks
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Chop all your fruits into bite-size pieces
  2. Push fruits onto the skewers
  3. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, honey and cinnamon and stir well
  4. Dip the kabobs into the yogurt dip and enjoy a healthy snack


Remember, be creative, have fun and above all, safety first! Always talk to the adult in charge before you get your chef on! Happy cooking!

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
