Your kids will fly right home for these delicious after-school nutritious snacks that look like beautiful butterflies. Add a few raisins on each "apple wing" and they transform into butterflies with spotted wings. Spice up the flavor by adding 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the peanut butter.
My mother used to make these for my brother and I when we were little, as we both have peanut allergies. The real ants on a log are made with peanut butter for the spread, but my mom substituted cheese whiz, which is really yummy. Even if your children don't have a peanut allergy, I am sure that they will love this new little after school snack.Enjoy!
I learned this recipe while I was taking a home economics class in high school (a long time ago). I have prepared these 'eggs in a basket' for my children for Easter fun when they were small. They are all grown up now and they still insist on the 'eggs in a basket' each and every Easter. My hubby really likes them too.
Looking for a natural NeoCitran substitute? Or a hot lemony drink when you're not feeling so well? This has all the goodness of the store brand without the powdery, chemical taste. All that is needed is your favorite pain killer and before you know it, you're better! My deepest thanks to the cook book "sublime vegetarian" for this recipe. I have personally made this recipe for a couple of winters now, it works. My family thinks it's wonderful.
An absolute must for ANY children's party or even dare I say, adult parties too......weddings, girls night's in, showers, pajama parties & sleep overs, retro buffets, etc. My Mum showed me how to make these--the recipe is an original Be-Ro standard Victoria Sponge mix--very easy to multiply or reduce. I have given a modest amount here for 12-18 butterfly or fairy cakes, depending on what size paper case you use. Expect these to FLY off the plate--sorry, I could not resist the pun!
