If you’ve been around our blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed that we love zebras here at All About Learning Press!

Maybe that’s because we have our very own Ziggy Zebra. Or maybe it’s just because we love animals with black and white stripes! Either way, you’re going to love this quick and easy snack that featuresyou guessed itzebra stripes!

Of all our ABC Snacks recipes, I think this is Ziggy Zebra’s favorite! It combines white popcorn and chocolate stripes for a yummy snack that’s fit for a zebra—or a couple of hungry preschoolers.

It sure looks like our adorable helpers were pleased with their zebra-striped popcorn, doesn’t it!
