Halloween Cookies, Treats

If you have little ones,( or even older ones)chances are their minds are on candy and other
Halloween cookies, treats, parties and costumes.
One of the oldest and easiest Halloween cookies “recipes” is below…well, it’s actually a recipe cheat born of frustration and short notice that you have to supply a treat for some event! I’m a Grandmother now and I remember my own Mother making these. The variations are many, so relax, grab the kids and enjoy yourself…these cookies are “done” in minutes. No cooking involved!

Easy Cinnamon Butter

There’s nothing quite like warm cinnamon toast and oatmeal on a cool fall morning! If you’re tired of buying the expensive pre-mixed butters so readily available, give this recipe a try! My grandmother kept this on hand year round as far back as I can remember( the early 50’s ) and I occasionally add vanilla to it for variety. It’s great either way and is also a kid friendly recipe. Cinnamon toast cut in triangles can be a delicious after school snack, too. There’s something about food cut in triangles that really appeals to the little ones!

Kid Friendly Fresh Fruit Kabobs

One of the best parts of summer is the fresh fruit. And as a mom, I try to incorporate as much as possible into my family’s diet. One fun way is to have my kids make their own fresh fruit kabobs! These are also a great breakfast buffet food as well as a fun summer party or BBQ treat.

Monkey Munch

All this time my family has called the following recipe chocolate sugar crunchies …. this week I found it’s actually referred to as Monkey Munch. My 5 year old granddaughter had the giggles the whole short time it took to make it. No matter what you call it, it’s still delicious, delightful, easy and fun!

Super Bowl Recipes: Mini Sloppy Joes

Mini Sloppy Joes are a great tailgate party food because everything is easier to handle when it’s smaller if you have a buffet set up.

These are especially great if you are going to have children at your party or are serving other entrees! Of all the Sloppy Joes I’ve had in the past, none have brown sugar in them – and it’s just yummy!

Kid Friendly Mousse

Many families with small children keep a few staples around … like frozen whipped topping. Pudding cups. Fruit cups …. child friendly items.

For children in the 3 and upward range, take a container of Cool Whip, thawed and put in large bowl. Have the little one choose their favorite pudding flavor … allow then 5-6 cups, and hand them a big spoon.

Let them make their own whip, mousse, fluff or whatever they want to name it.

It’s a wonderful distraction. Looks good, tastes better and can be made using all sugar free products, also. This has the added plus of not being too messy, as children tend to love the *clean up* involved with this.

Have them experiment…

Follow up with great praise, and you have a budding chef in the making! Although, truth be told, that’s not always a good thing.
