Party Ants on a Log | Feed Your Skull

Can you believe today’s snack doesn’t have an apple in it? There have been so many lately but I’m deviating a little today. I wanted to revisit ants on a log.

I’ve done a few celery recipes. Do you remember Ants on a Hill or almond cheese filled celery sticks? They are delicious!

Party Ants on a Log | Feed Your SkullI really wanted to call these Raving Ants on a Log but since I’ve never been to a rave or raved, I thought it would be a little disingenuous.

I can relate to afternoon slumps at work though. Two and three o’clock hits and you’re ready to put the coffee on again or go for a walk outside.

Cacao nibs are crumbled from whole cacao beans that have been peeled. They are the ultimate dark chocolate chip. They have a coffee chocolate flavor in my opinion and are great sprinkled on snacks like this, oatmeal or smoothies and even blended in smoothies. Nibs are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
