No baking necessary and always a big hit!! My niece made these last year for the holidays and I thought they were adorable. We don't like red hots, so I use mini M&M's. This also allows you to use various colors for the eyes and nose.
I realize this isn't technically a recipe - but it does include food! It's an angel made using a Hershey's kiss. Very cute. These are fun for the tree, add to a package, or just leave one someones desk. I had a hard time finding the directions to make these...so I decided to post it here for everyone. I also wouldn't give these to children since it contains a straight pin. Just a decoration! Happy Holidays!
A yummy beverage for kids of all ages. "I never saw a purple cow, I never hope to see one; But I can tell you, anyhow, I'd rather see than BE one." From Susan Branch blog. Would be perfect to sip on a Purple Cow while viewing the Blue Moon tomorrow evening.
These cute heart-shaped sugar cubes are so easy to make! Even the kids can help. I think they would be fun for parties, especially tea parties or to offer to guests with coffee after dinner. The silicone ice trays come in every imaginable shape, so make your sugar cubes in whatever shape or motif you wish. Imagine making them in Orange for Halloween, Red for Valentine’s Day. White would be beautiful for a bridal shower. Pink and lavender is pretty for Easter and Mother’s Day. Recipe is originally from Country Living and you can see a sugar hearts tutorial online at Between Naps on the Porch blog.
These are cute for kids and healthy, too. They go well with other things at a tea party. Also, they would be good for a lunch for the kids. If it is for a tea party the inside stalks will be more dainty, but if it is for the child's lunch, any stalk will do.
This was a snack my Dad taught me to do when I was a kid. (It's about his cooking speed!) Warm gooey peanut butter with cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top. Now my kids are making this and loving it, too. We normally use slices of whole grain bread with natural peanut butter on ours.Cinnamon swirl bread is a real treat.
This is an easy wonderfully tastey treat that is great for all occasions. This is my mother in law's recipe, that my sweet husband had as a child, and my children ask for also. I have also molded these in to little brains on Halloween.
This is my mom's recipe. What's different about how I make it is the method not the ingredients. Using the microwave is key to not overcooking! I get requests to make these all the time and am consistently told that these are the best scotcharoos people have ever had. Enjoy!
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.
These are cute little sandwiches are tasty and simple. There is orange marmalade in the cream cheese filling adds a flavorful surprise. Recipe is from Taste of Home. Update 2/6/08: Since "Chef#8688" used the heart-shaped cutter for her sandwiches, I decided to change the name of the recipe. I think the heart-shaped cutters and using some red-colored jam would be great for Valentine's Day or anytime you want to treat someone special.
The combination of honey and banana promotes great help with anemia (thanks for that info, Rita!). It also makes a great spread for a tea sandwich! You could use toasted white bread, but I have found that the combo spread on whole wheat bread or pumpernickel is WONDERFUL! It also gives a bit more nutritious value to what you're eating. I don't normally toast the wheat bread for these little treats, but you could. It's also a great recipe to serve to younger tea party guests.
This is a way to hide some veggies from your toddlers. It requires the use of pureed veggies, specifically carrots and zucchini, although these veggies can be altered. Simply steam the veggies until fully cooked and puree in a blender or food processor for a couple minutes. Voila. Use those in some recipes and your kids will never know they're getting their veggies. :D My daughter loves these for whatever reason--and she's a picky, picky eater. Hope your kids like them, too!
