Monkey Mayhem Cracker Snacks

Print Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need to make four monkey faces:

  • 4 round snack crackers
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 8 O-shaped cereal pieces
  • 4 smile-shaped pretzel pieces
  • 8 chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Spread crackers with peanut butter.
  2. Position one banana slice on the bottom edge of each cracker.
  3. Place two chocolate chips above each banana slice to form eyes.
  4. Position two cereal O’s on each side of the cracker to form ears.
  5. Add a pretzel piece on the banana slice to form a mouth.

Variations:

  • Have peanut allergies? Use your favorite cracker spread instead of peanut butter.
  • Avoiding sweets? Use raisins instead of chocolate.

I didn’t think of that, but they sure would be cute for a monkey or jungle themed party, wouldn’t they?

These cute little guys are fantastic! All of the snack ideas really enforce the letter sounds for my twins. I’m all for allowing learning to be fun. The lessons tend to stick better.

I feel like my kitchen is never closed, so school mixes with food a lot at our house. This just combines the two intentionally, brilliant :-)
