Apple Peanut Butter Smiles

It’s flu season and it has hit our house hard. It actually went around twice. First Whistler, then my husband and then myself and around again. We were so lucky as to catch both the week long flu, and then the 2 day flu. So. Much. Fun.

We spent a lot of time wrapped in blankets on the couch catching up on our favorite shows, eating chicken gnocchi soup and replacing the tissues.

Of course, there isn’t ever a good time to be sick, but at least it coincided with a slew of new titles being released this month. There were lots of family friendly comedies available to make us feel better.

I once heard the best cure for the flu is laughter, but the also say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. So I created these fun peanut butter apple smiles snack that pretty much takes care of both, right?
