Stuffed Celery Snacks

When I was a child, my mother would serve my celery sticks filled with cream cheese. My friend's mother would serve her celery sticks filled with peanut butter. This recipe is a blend of the two traditional celery stuffings.

8 stalks of celery, cleaned
6 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp light cream
1/2 cup chopped peanuts, salted

In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, peanut butter, and light cream. Fill celery stalks with mixture and top with chopped peanuts. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Sour Cream Cocktail Dip

I have always loved testing out different dips, sauces, and spreads. This is a very easy cocktail dip you can make a day before a party.

  • 1 cup dairy sour cream (you can also use plain yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 2 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp steak sauce
  • 1 tsp prepared horseradish

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
