Desktop Snack Basket with SKIPPY® Peanut Butter Squeeze Packs
We have been spending lots of time in our home office these days. The kids are doing virtual school in the office with me and I have many days that are filled with back to back zoom meetings. Needless to say, we spend endless hours in there and I need all the help I can get. I don’t have a spare minute. I have integrated many hacks as part of our daily routine, that helps us have less chaotic days, where we can thrive and have successful days. Today, I am sharing with you one of those hacks: Desktop Snack Basket.
Filled with SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter Squeeze Pack, SKIPPY® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Spread Squeeze Pack; my snacking options are carefully curated, with protein like SKIPPY® on veggies, fruits, and pretzels. A Desktop Snack Basket allows us to grab a snack without leaving the office. Check out how you can also create a Desktop Snack Basket for yourself, filled with tasty and filling snacks.
Let’s talk about what I pack in my baskets:
I love filling my desktop snack basket with SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter Squeeze Pack or SKIPPY® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Spread Squeeze Pack. Each 6 oz squeeze pack is resealable and provides about 5 servings. These resealable squeeze packs are so easy to use and convenient -we use them multiple times during the day. These mess-free squeeze packs make them my favorite desktop basket snack; their 6 oz pack size allows me to enjoy peanut butter anywhere. It’s a snack with 7 grams of protein that tastes great and we feel good about eating.
Sliced Green Granny Apples and Pink Lady Apples are my fave. I like to slice them thin and sprinkle lime juice on them – this makes them last all day with out turning brown.
Celery Sticks I love slicing them down into about 4 inch sticks.
Pretzel Sticks– come in a variety of flavors and brands. I love these longer and sticker ones with just salt sprinkled on them. Easier to snack on throughout the day.
Where to purchase snacks
These busy days are made easier by shopping online for all my snacks. Walmart’s pick up and delivery is my one stop shop for snacks, baskets and of course my favorite SKIPPY® Peanut Butter Squeeze Packs. I place my order online and I pick them up that same day – I drive up to the Walmart Pick up parking spots and the groceries are brought right to my car. So easy, so convenient, safe and such a timer saver.

BASKET FOOD PREP
Okay so here it is, this is how I prep each morning. It only takes me a couple of minutes to pack my basket but saves me lots of time during the day. Make your own by prepping ahead each morning…check out how I prep my each morning.
Cut the apples in half, then each edge in half again, until you have achieved your desired size. Then place them in a small bowl.
Cut the ends of the celery sticks and then cut them in half. The smaller size makes them easier to handle while you work.
ADD PRETZEL STICKS
SETTING UP FOOD IN BASKET
Here is my step my step tutorial on how to prep your basket.
Get a low basket basket. ( small enough to fit on your desk, big enough to pack with your favorite snacks)
ADD PRETZEL STICKS
Next add pretzel sticks in their container. I used a cute glass cup to hold my pretzel sticks.
ADD THE CELERY STICKS
Now add your favorite veggies. I love celery with peanut butter, so I added celery sticks in a cute bowl and placed it in the basket.
ADD THE APPLES
Add the sliced apples to a different small bowl and place those in the basket. I place my bowls on different sides of the basket.
SKIPPY® Peanut Butter Squeeze Packs
Now add the Skippy Peanut Butter Squeeze packs to the basket. I add a couple of packs to the basket and a variety of SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter and SKIPPY® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter to suit our each of our preference.
SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter helps me keep on track because it filling for me when I am trying to eat in a way that makes me feel good. It has 7 grams of protein and I just feel good to eat it with fruits and veggies! I am able to snack between meals and I don’t feel guilty like I do when I eat chips. I love that I can also pack them for hikes, or just take them in my purse when I am out an about all day. I pack sliced apples in a zipper bag and take a SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter Squeeze Pack. It holds me over and helps me stick to my goals.
Once my prepping is done, I bring my basket to the office. I suggest picking a basket that is just the right size for your desktop area. In my case a long rectangular basket was just the perfect size. My snacks are right next to me, and I have loved being able to have then in the office. Now I am able to snack, even when I have one of those none stop days.
