Two of my kids’ favorite times of day are morning and afternoon snack time. It’s like they measure their entire day around them! Even though we change it around, there are a few things that are their select favorites they’re always asking for. Since I like to give them variety, I’ve found some fun ways to include their favorites in new ways, such as these super fun Cheesy Goldfish Snacks!

The thing I love most about these is how ridiculously SIMPLE they are to make! Plus, I can make a big batch and stick them in a container in our fridge for later, instead of doing it all right when it’s time for snack. My kids are practically addicted to Goldfish crackers lately, especially since they come in such different flavors! I used their COLORS for these, but it also works amazing with any of the others like Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar or Whole Grain. Just swing by the cracker aisle at Walmart to pick up a few cartons! They’re even on Rollback right now!

  • Goldfish crackers in flavor of choice
  • Cheese of choice (I use cheddar most often)
  • Pretzel sticks

  1. Crush some of the Goldfish crackers, keeping a fun variety of sizes: some super fine, other still pretty chunky. Cheesy Goldfish Snacks / by Busy Mom's Helper #GoldfishMix #CollectiveBias #ad #snacks
  2. Spread wax paper on a baking sheet (prevents it sticking) or other surface.
  3. Melt your cheese, dip in one end up a pretzel stick, then dip that into the crumbs. Place on wax paper to firm up. Cheesy Goldfish Snacks / by Busy Mom's Helper #GoldfishMix #CollectiveBias #ad #snacks Cheesy Goldfish Snacks / by Busy Mom's Helper #GoldfishMix #CollectiveBias #ad #snacks

Store any extras in the fridge because, well, it DOES have cheese, after all!

My kids think these are ‘big kid’ snacks….not sure why they call them that, but if it makes them happy I’m all for it! Be sure to check out Goldfish snacks on Twitter and Facebook for more fun and savings!
