Patriotic Fruit Salsa with Sweet Star Chips

Fun & Patriotic Fruit Salsa with Star Chips!

When I was given the opportunity to work with Unilever trying out some of their buttery spreads, I was like, “Heck yeah!”  First, because it means going shopping at Walmart.  And what mama doesn’t love an opportunity to go to Walmart?  And second, because I get to come up with some creative recipes using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Country Crock.  (Which is really easy peasy because it’s no different than cooking with the regular old butter I’m used to.)  Here’s what I came up with for my first recipe…

I was really quite impressed with how well the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter worked for this recipes.  To be honest I expected the spread to be watery once I melted it, but it was no different from regular butter.  So it worked great for making these cinnamon sugar chips to go with our fruit salsa.  And it contains no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils; score!  I can’t wait to get more from Walmart to try in some more Summer kids snack recipes.
