Big smiles. Mom is letting us have sugar today!

We invited all of their friends over for an over-the-top Candyland birthday party.

My challenge was finding some healthy snacks that I could fit into the candy theme. These mozzarella and tomato skewers fit the bill perfectly – mimicking the pattern of a candy cane, yet delivering some nutrients along with the fun!

These skewers are easy and festive — perfect to serve alongside Fruit Skewers. Look below for more healthy appetizer recipes.
