Cheesy Pretzel Dippers (Lunch Box Surprise)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

For our 5 year olds lunch box for either snack time or lunch for his first year at kindergarten that are reasonably healthy but will bring a smile to his face when he finds them. This recipe would also be good for long car trips.

This is such a great idea. For some reason this week my 6 yr. old son did not want to have lunch at school so I packed all week. He said he was tired of the same 2 lunches I make him. So I got on Zaar and found creative and kid-friendly ideas. This was one of them. Thanks for the new idea!
