Want to take a tasty snack like this on the go?
Grab a sealable container such as a tupperware or mason jar. Put a spreadable ingredient (peanut butter, hummus, etc.) on the bottom of the container. Stick shortened stalks of celery (or carrot sticks too!) upright into the container. Place a fun topping (raisins, pretzels, etc.) on top. Close the container and take with you!
