Kid's Make-It-Yourself Snack: Cheese Mice.

For a collection of Kids Eat This recipes, visit my Pinterest Board for ideas here. This is the board I use to collect fun ideas for summertime and after school snacks for kids that are cute, and usually look like an animal or cartoon character!

Cheese Mice
I learned to make these from the chefs at Central Market, at a Cabot Cheese cooking class (where I also learned how to make Macaroni & Cheese Cupcakes). I thought they were so easy, even a preschool kid could make them.

Cabot White Cheddar Cheese cut into squares
Crackers of your choice (I used square multi-grain crackers)
Strawberries (cut off top and slice in half)
Mini Chocolate Chips
Pretzel Sticks

Push 3 mini chocolate chips (pointy side in) into your strawberry to make the nose and eyes of your mouse.

Set your strawberry on top of a square of cheese that is on top of a cracker. Push one pretzel stick into the back of the strawberry to be the mouse's tail. Break another pretzel stick in half, and push the two halves into the front of the strawberry to be the mouse's ears.

Make as many of these as you and your young-uns want to eat. I suggest eating them while reading "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" or you can play some Cabot Cheese trivia and word scramble games on their website here. Have fun!

Oh I love the idea not serving these while reading If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. I love that book series!
