Thanks to Funley’s Delicious for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are mine alone. Thanks for supporting the brands/companies that help make The Seasoned Mom possible!

Do your kids love to snack as much as mine do? I often feel like I’m constantly feeding my crew…whether it’s a full meal or munchies in between, they just can’t seem to get enough!

Rather than filling their bellies with candy, chips, and other not-so-great options, I love to get creative and pull together snack ideas that taste good, but that also have some nutritional value. That’s why I jumped right onboard when my friends at Funley’s Delicious challenged me to get my boys in the kitchen and create a kid-friendly recipe with some of their delicious snacks.

Three packets of super crackers

We sampled these All Natural Super Crackers in the following flavors: Cheddar N’ Stuff, Cornbread N’ Stuff, and Pizza N’ Stuff. The “N’ Stuff” refers to all of the superfood veggies that are hidden inside every bite, including broccoli, carrots, spinach and sweet potatoes.

The Super Crackers are packed with 7+ essential vitamins and minerals, and are GMO-free. And trust me…your kids will never know the secret!

My boys absolutely LOVE the slightly-sweet Cornbread N’ Stuff flavor, but any of the three options would be delicious paired alongside this Microwave Pizza Dip.

And while they’re not exactly a great companion for a pizza dip, I also need to mention Funley’s All Natural Wholly Granolly® Clusters. These things are SO.GOOD!!! Almost too good…we can’t stop eating them!

The little poppable granola snacks are great on their own, but they are also really tasty in yogurt, in trail mix, on cereal, or even as ice cream toppers. Wholly Granolly® Clusters are low in sodium and include 6+ essential vitamins and minerals, whole grains, and GMO-free ingredients.

But back to this pizza dip!! Do you know any kids who don’t like pizza? Me either.

This dip is especially great, though, because it meets all of my summertime snacking criteria:

  • (1) The kids can easily help make it (which provides some much-needed entertainment on those quiet summer days that sometimes seem to drag…);
  • (2) It requires just a few simple ingredients and very little preparation;
  • (3) It cooks in the microwave in just 2 minutes, which means that it’s fast AND it doesn’t heat up my kitchen in a hot oven;
  • (4) It’s a great way to sneak some extra veggies into your kids’ diets (just like the Funley’s crackers); plus it includes calcium and protein from the low-fat cheese; and
  • (5) Most importantly, it tastes delicious so your kids will actually eat it!

Variations – Other Things To Add;

  • Different cheese, any good melting cheese will do
  • Cooked bacon, sausage or chicken
  • Jarred artichokes
  • Jarred bell peppers
  • Red onion

My Kids Loved Making This Pizza Dip

My older boys love to join me in the kitchen, but I try to be selective with the recipes that we make together. For this dip, I prep the veggies in advance by dicing a bell pepper and any other tasty pizza toppings that I might have on hand (mushrooms, onions, green pepper, shredded carrots, you get the idea).

I then measure the ingredients into cups so that my youngest guys just have to dump and stir!

A little bit of Parmesan cheese…

and some Italian seasoning.

In addition to the blender, the microwave is the boys’ favorite kitchen appliance. It makes beeping noises and it lights up…what more could they ask for?

2 minutes later, this warm, gooey, and cheesy dip comes out tasting just like your favorite pizza…minus the crust! Grab some crackers and dig in!
