Pepperoni Pizza Dippers

Pepperoni Pizza Dippers

    Now that the holiday vacation is over, we are back to our regular school schedule which includes extracurricular activities and sports.  If your kids are like mine, they come home from school every afternoon starving which actually makes me wonder what they are serving for lunch daily.  As a Working Mom, I have tried to come up with easy after-school snacks that my boys can enjoy and that won’t take a ton of preparation.

Pepperoni Pizza Dippers

    Both of my sons love pizza so I knew that any recipe involving pizza ingredients would be right up their alley.  I found that I could make easy pepperoni pizza dippers with some of the ingredients that we normally keep in the house anyway.  All of this equals to a yummy recipe, happy kids after school, and a mom who is super cool in the eyes of her children!
