Appetizers Snacks

Bunny Tail Mix

Lucy is always wanting to help out in the kitchen! I found an easy recipe on Pinterest that she could easily create on her own with just a little supervision from me!  I decided to leave out a couple of ingredients and just used what I had on hand!

You will need:

Just mix all ingredients in a large bowl and serve!! Store in an air tight container.

This fun little mix is the perfect snack for Easter, and keeping little hands busy!

*Disclaimer* this is EXTREMELY addicting! I highly recommend making it and stashing it away!!

 

I hope you have as much fun as we did, throwing this together!

Valentine’s Hugged Pretzels | The Random Arrow

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I can remember making these treats as a kid, so I decided to share the love with my 4 year old, who has become obsessed with helping mommy in the kitchen.  These Hugged Pretzel’s are the perfect combination of salty and sweet.

You will need:

  • 1 bag of Valentines M&M’s
  • 1 bag of Snyder’s Butter Snap Pretzels
  • 1 bag of Hershey’s Hugged Kisses
  1. Pre heat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  3. As oven preheats, neatly place pretzels on baking sheet. (I used a 15″ pan, so I used almost half a bag of pretzels.)
  4. Count how many pretzels you used and unwrap that many Hershey’s Hugs.
  5. Place in oven for 2 1/min.
  6. Pull pan out of oven and let sit for less than a minute.
  7. Gently press M&Ms into the Hershey hugs.
  8. Place in refrigerator for about an hour.
  9. Store in an air tight container.
  10. Enjoy!

Cheesecake Truffles

Cheesecake Truffles

I made these truffles by accident one day. I originally had planned to make the famous Oreo truffles, but when I opened the pantry I discovered that someone had eaten most of the Oreos….(insert eye roll here). So I saw the box of graham cracker crumbs and decided to give it a whirl. These little truffles are very addictive!

You will need:

  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs (hold about 1/3 cup to the side if you wish to top truffles)
  • 12 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 package melting chocolate (my favorite is Candiquik, it’s so easy to melt and you can melt it right in the container)
  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs together in a bowl.
  3. using a table spoon, scoop out some of the mixture and roll it into a ball.
  4. After desired amount is made, refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  5. Follow melting instructions on package.
  6. Using two forks, dip and roll the ball mixture into the chocolate.
  7. Sprinkle remaining graham cracker crumbs before chocolate hardens.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator after all chocolate hardens.
  9. Enjoy!!
