Cut cheese sticks (string cheese) into thin strips. Stuff inside large pitted black olives. Toss w/ olive oil, red wine vinegar and parsley.
*I realize I am very lucky that my child likes black olives, so if your child doesn't, maybe something else instead? And I'm actually not going to dress these for Alex; but if I were to make them for a party I definitely would.
Sandwich small slices of cheddar between mini twist pretzels. Put on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes @ 425º. Serve w/ mustard.
*I actually like this one for me! With the mustard aspect it reminds me of a soft pretzel dipped in mustard...Yum. I might make a big batch of these just to have on hand as snacks around the house!
