10 Healthy Snack Pairs

Fresh Ideas to Conquer Your Cravings

We all do it! We resolve to snack less, eat better, and exercise more. But when stress is mounting, it's so easy to reach for a quick bite that's empty of nutrition and full of calories.

Recently, my husband asked me to assemble a list of snacks that he can enjoy guilt-free. We all have different ideas about good nutrition, and what's healthy and what isn't. If you scan this list, I'm sure you'll find a few snack pairs that will satisfy your family.

Since my husband loves his chips and salsa, they're definitely included. It's up to you to decide whether to offer them to your hungry loved ones between meals.

Peanut Butter Frosted {Chocolate Cupcakes}

A Yummy Back-to-School Dessert

Sometimes we all just need a little bit of fun in our day! Kids are no exception, especially when they're adjusting the demands of a new school year.

You can whip up these little gems the night before a big day in class, and pack them in your children's lunch boxes in the morning. Another prime time to offer your cupcake love is after a sports team practice, or driving to piano lessons. They'll be so grateful, Mom!


1 package chocolate cake mix
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 cups confectioners sugar
chocolate chips or kisses


1. Bake cupcakes according to the package directions. For best baking results, measure batter accurately with a cupcake batter dispenser. Allow cupcakes to cool.

2. Melt sugar, peanut butter and butter together in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and transfer to a medium bowl. Whisk in milk and set aside to cool.

3. Add confectioners sugar and beat on medium/high speed with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth.

4. Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes, and garnish each one with a chocolate chip.

Yield: Approx. 1-1/2 cups. Will thinly frost 24 cupcakes
