One of the many traditions my family has is our Friday night, Family Fun Night. On Friday nights we watch a movie and eat fun food. We do a lot of pizza but not far behind is corn dogs and chicken nuggets. I am pretty sure it is my kids favorite night of the week.  This week i’m excited because i’m setting the DVR up to record a halloween classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, so we can watch on Friday. I just turned 38 last week and I can say that I have watched it every single year. How can you not watch this 1966 classic?!?!  Heck in 1981 I even dressed up as Sally for Halloween.

I love the entire Peanuts gang and I have happily have passed this love onto my kid’s. One of things we are all looking forward to is The Peanuts Movie. I seriously cannot wait for it to come out!  Being a family of 6 going to the movies is expensive though but I have found a great way to save on tickets. Right now if you go to Walmart and buy ANY TWO (2) specially marked packages of Tyson® Chicken Products or State Fair® Corn Dogs and you can up to $9.00 toward one child admission to see The Peanuts Movie Only in Theaters. How awesome is that! Yes, please!

Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and State Fair® Corn Dogs are family fun night favorites around here so, I picked up some of both for some protein powered snacking! The movie offer is such an awesome bonus.

When eating corn dogs and chicken nuggets my kids do not ever eat them plain. You have to have a dip. Dipping sauces are like cheese and make things even better. Favorite dips in our house are usually honey mustard,ranch and spicy ranch and there is always plenty of back in forth among themselves about what dip they want to use. So I started thinking what if I came up with a spicy honey mustard? So pulled out my food processor and got to work and created a Chipotle Honey Mustard. It is my kid’s new favorite when it comes to dipping sauces.  Chipotle Honey Mustard is both sweet and spicy and makes your tastebuds want more!

Creating the sauce was simple. It has 6 basic ingredients, Mayo, Yellow Mustard, Dijon Mustard, Honey, Garlic and Chipotle Peppers.

Peanut Butter Monster Rice Cakes

I have to tell you something about my family, they are peanut butter monsters. Each and every one of them. It is insane the amount of peanut butter my family goes through in a month. I sometimes wonder if my family has peanut butter running through their veins they eat so much of it. With eating the quantities that we do there are always debates. Like the basic Creamy, Crunchy or both? Regular peanut butter or honey peanut butter? Which peanut butter is the best peanut butter? My husband and I have seriously stood in the aisle comparing labels for a good twenty minutes trying to figure that last one out. Then I discovered a new peanut butter, Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast at Walmart.

I fell in love with it. I shared some with Lil Miss and Mr Great when we made Peanut Butter Monster Rice Cakes but I want to keep the rest to myself. Would it be that bad if I hid it for myself?

So what makes this peanut butter so special? Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast is “creamy with a BIT OF CRUNCH.” It’s not smooth but at the same time it is not a traditional crunchy peanut butter. It is similar to the texture of freshly ground peanut butter. I really like the texture. It is perfect just spread on a rice cake, my go to pre- long run breakfast to just dipping some Honeycrisp apple slices in.

Thinking about my favorite things to eat with peanut butter with I came up with a great snack idea for my kids, Peanut Butter Rice Cake Monsters. When my boy’s were younger I was always trying to come up with cute snack ideas for school. By the time it is my daughters turn most of these ideas are old news and she wants something different. Halloween is coming up so I knew I had to get to work for her class halloween party so I started brainstorming and came up with an idea that combines some of my favorite things and lets her play with her food. To top it off it is a healthy snack. Can you say win-win?

Step one, prepare your fruit. If you will not be eating your monsters right away and will be using apples remember to add some lemon juice to help prevent the apples from browning.

Next open up your peanut butter, doesn’t that peanut butter look delicious!Peanut Butter Rice Cake Monsters | Country Girl Gourmet

Spread 2 (or more) tablespoons of peanut butter on a rice cake. If you add more I won’t judge. Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast is good stuff!

Once your peanut butter is evenly spread across your rice cake it is time to play with your food and create your monster.
