This is a kid-friendly snack I make with the 3 year old I watch. It is really good and she loves to make it. It can be made from leftovers or fresh--whatever you have on hand.

fantastic idea. It's as easy / yummy as you want to make it--whether its Kraft or homemade. Want it spicy? Add jalapenos. Smoky? Add a few bacon bits.
