I remember after-school snacks as an affair of epic importance. And let’s face it, even though you’re not in school anymore, snacks in general are still a monumental thing, don’t you think?
You need fuel. You need excitement. You need a break from the monotony.
Pop Quiz: Do you really want to waste your snacking time on something you just got out of a vending machine?
I’m not going to grade you on a curve here, people. The obvious answer is ‘NO’.
Another thing of importance is foods that are super cute, aesthetically pleasing, and/or otherwise easy on the eyes. Lately I’ve been particularly enamored of tiny foods. Foods that you could pop into your pocket just before you have a chance to pop them into your mouth.
Enter the sweet mini pepper.
Seriously, if you don’t think that these sweet mini peppers are cute enough to dress up in rompers and take down to the park to play, I just don’t know what’s what in your neighborhood.
And the thing that’s really great about these sweet peppers, other than their extreme cuteness, is that they’re a fantastic addition to both savory and sweet dishes.
Which is how they found their way into some smoky Roasted Sweet Mini Pepper Salsa, some cute as a button Sweet Mini Pepper Quesaditas, and some adorable Peanut Butter-Stuffed Sweet Mini Peppers.
An After-School Snack Spread for the ages!
