After sampling one of these little gems at Starbucks, I just had to make some of my own! They are so delicious, can be customized with numerous different flavor combinations, and can be decorated for any occasion. They're a bit of work, but so worth it.
I saw this being made on a children's programe, and they looked fantastic.
I am posting it here to make next time I have any younger ones around.
The amount of Ingredients used depend on how many snacks you want to make.
Every child and adult in Denmark have fond memories of sitting around the bonfire on June 23rd when we celebrate Midsummer Sankt Hans. Most often we will make 'snobroed' which basically means 'wound bread'. You find sticks (great task for kids) long enough that you can sit at a safe distance and bake the bread over the fire. The bread dough is wound around the stick and will bake in approx 15 min. The key and often competition is who can bake the best bread without it getting burn marks. Hint - the coal and not the flames works best. It takes patience, but is so much fun and the banter will be flying. I have arranged this for friends and our kids during camping trips and it is now a MUST tradition and a great fuss free way of cooking dinner/snacks. See the recipe below for addtional tips on how to cook with hot dogs, ham etc. If camping you can make the dough ahead of time and place in a big zip lock bag, break the dough off directly in the bag and with floured hands roll out and onto the sticks.
I made these one weekend for a bunch of kids including our grandbabies. They all had a BLAST! We used bubble wands from some store bought bubbles. When the bottles ran out of the small amount of $1 solution we refilled them with this homemade solution that cost less than $1 for a whole gallon!
This recipe is for a treat to make for your kids or with your kids. It is super simple and a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day together. Have it ready for them while you make dinner or make it as lunch or a snack on the green day. Sure to please and maybe get them to eat the pepper. This recipe came from Family Fun. Enjoy. ChefDLH.
The name says it all. And the thicker you spread the mixture the more ooey and gooey it gets, which is my own personal preference. This makes for a nice picnic or in my case a potluck in which everyone enjoyed. The spread doesn't have to be eaten all at once, so refrigerate whatever is leftover or want for later on.
I found this recipe in the book 'Fast Fixes with Mixes' and thought my son would enjoy this fun spin on the corndog. They are a hit and they will probably be made on a regular basis. For a more grown up version (great for football parties) try adding some canned green chilies, extra hot sauce or cheese. Really forgiving recipe and really easy to make changes. It makes about 18 muffins which seems like a lot but they reheat really well.
From Sergei and Valya Boutenko's Eating Without Heating: Favorite Recipes from Teens Who Love Raw Food. They say about it: "You can make nori rolls, cabbage wraps, spread it on crackers, stuff mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and more." I have adapted it to fit in my little Oscar food processor.
This is adapted from Jane Kinderlehrer's Banana Pecan Tartlets, found in her Smart Cookies book. The pecans are for garnish. I had forgotten the name and that part of the recipe. I guess I just think of them as Yum.
This NON-EDIBLE recipe is named after the strange material that falls from the sky in Dr. Seuss' book, Bartholomew and the Oobleck.
It's a really fun recipe to be used as a science experiment of sorts with young children. ----Is it a solid? ---- Is it a liquid? **It's a liquid until pressure is applied. Hit it hard and it feels like you are hitting a wall! Touch it gently and the material will flow around your fingers like water! **Have fun using different utensils to play- see what form it takes while using different cups, spoons, bowls, etc.
No title can do justice to the wonder of this delicious sandwich. I always think of it as panini, though I'm sure that's not technically correct! Anyway, it's grilled with peanut butter and banana and if you're in doubt, try it, you'll never want cold Pb&b again.
Fun Spring Treats! Kids love them.
Use a 6 or 12 cup muffin tin depending on desired size of nests. We made only 6 nest with this recipe so we could overlap the top and give an "edge" for our bird to sit on. You could serve these right away or wrap them in a pretty cellophane bag and give them as a gift.
