I love to eat peanut butter!  Whether it’s on a spoon, on a sandwich, on pancakes or just on the spoon – it’s yummy!  One of my favorite brands is Jif and they have broken out of their shell to create  Jif Hazelnut Spreads.  Our kids love snacking on it!

There are three different flavors, including Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Mocha Cappuccino.  Their favorite is the Chocolate flavor, but they also like the Salted Caramel.  The Salted Caramel flavor is a delicious combination of creamy chocolate hazelnut and salty sweet caramel.  It will definitely put a fun twist on your favorite snack.  You can enjoy the spread of Jif Salted Caramel on a slice of toast, dipped in fruit, on celery or even on the spoon!

We decided to make an Ants on a Log Recipe with the kids and they liked it.  Making it was super easy!  Cut up celery and then add Jif Salted Caramel or Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.  The Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Spread is another great option for the grownups.  Then you add raisins on top – these are the ants.  Serve and enjoy!
