Snack Jars with Gold Dip

Fruit and vegetable sticks with a dollop of peanut butter is a classic healthy snack and on lazydays we often just place a jar of peanut butter with a few carrots or apple slices on the table. This is a slightly upgraded version with a flavoured peanut butter dip that is served in a jar and then topped up with crunchy fruit and vegetables.
