ML, I have started making pork belly snacks for my two grandsons - and they love them.
I use a really sharp knife and slice very thin strips, bake them for an hour or so, then cool them on a wire rack. I lightly salt them, and once cool put them in an airtight container.
Scroggin is always easy ! dark chocolate, nuts, dried fruit etc
I also soak cut up prunes and apricots in peach schnapps ( you will have to use cold tea as a non-alcoholic soak for the children thou). Drain after a day or two, and mix with cream cheese and grated cheese. Roll in nuts and refridgerate. Once cold - slice into rounds and it tastes great on its own without crackers !!!
and the rest are probably quite obvious
have fun !
