Celebrate the July 2018 U.S. Lunar Eclipse with these adorable RITZ Lunar Eclipse Bites. They are made with crackers, peanut butter, banana and chocolate.
Where were you during the 2017 solar eclipse? Was that epic or what? We watched it through a huge telescope at a Science Museum in Michigan, and although we weren’t in the path of totality, we were still totally dazed and amazed!
On July 27, 2018 there will be a Lunar Eclipse! So be prepared to be more dazed and amazed. Admittedly, it’s probably not as cool as the solar eclipse because it happens more frequently, but my kids are still excited to see it! If you’re having a get together or want the kids to get extra festive for the Lunar Eclipse, you should totally make these Lunar Eclipse Bites!
I bet you already have all the ingredients for them 😉
Here’s a quick guide to putting together these Lunar Eclipse Bites.
To do this, I used a circular cookie cutter and cut out a crescent shape out of 12 crackers. What to do with the cut-out crumbs? Snack on them while you make these treats 😉
Once you have the moon shaped crackers, you can dip them in melted chocolate.
And then let them set in the fridge for about 10 minutes until they solidify.
The moon crescent will serve as the top of the “sandwich.” So you’ll want to take the remaining uncut crackers, and spread some peanut butter on each. You’ll use about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter on each cracker.
Then add a slice of banana. You can also add another layer of peanut butter on top of the banana to help seal the deal, but it’s not necessary.
Finally, you’re ready to top the sandwich with the chocolate covered moon.
And the party is on with the adorable Lunar Eclipse Bites!I love how easy these treats are. I made them a couple times and the kids love helping with each of the steps. Not having a lunar eclipse viewing party? This is still such a fun “cooking” project for the little ones this summer to help them learn more about lunar eclipses with an interactive (chocolate-filled) hands-on project.
I hope you try these feelgood Lunar Eclipse Bites. If you make them, please leave me a comment below telling me how you and your kiddos like them, or use hashtag #feelgoodfoodie on Instagram so I can see (and regram!) your recreations.
