Fun little breakfast that I made for Dylan! I used a little black food coloring on the frosted mini wheats for faces and then added some blue food coloring to the yogurt!
Caramel Apple Yogurt Bowl for my little guy!
1 Green apple
1 container of fat free vanilla greek yogurt
1tbsp store bought caramel apple dip
Chopped Nut of choice
Cut the top off of the apple and then core it out using a melon baller. Dip the rim into caramel and then into the chopped nuts. Fill with fat free vanilla greek yogurt.
Oreo Cocoa Krispy Truffles – The little guy and I made some treats! This kid is Oreo OBSESSED but then again, who isn’t?!!
1/2cup cocoa krispies
5 MEGA stuff Oreos (anything less is for sissy’s!)
32 grams fat free cream cheese
CandiQuik (@candiquik) white melting chocolate (best stuff EVER)
This is a good one to get the kids involved with but it can be messy! Fun, but definitely messy. Place 4 of the Oreos in a zip lock bag and crush them either by hand or with a mallet. Dylan chose to beat them senseless! Mix the crushed Oreos, cocoa krispies & cream cheese together in a bowl until well combined – and this is where it gets messy. We found it easiest to do it by hand vs. using a spoon! Once well combined, roll into 6 even sized balls and set on wax paper. Place the balls in the freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden before dipping in chocolate. Melt chocolate in a small dish for about 60 seconds, stirring at the 30 second mark. Insert a tooth pick into the top of the ball and dip in chocolate. Set back on wax paper and repeat with the remaining 5. Place back into the refrigerator/freezer until the chocolate has set. Take the last Oreo and remove the filling. Crush the 2 cookie pieces in a small bowl. Spread some of the white filling on top of each truffle and then dip into crushed cookie. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Say hello to the newest addition to my cookie cutters collection! How ADORABLE are these? I am in full ramp up mode for Dylan’s school lunches when he starts in 1.5 weeks and I came across these on Amazon.

Graham Cracker & Peanut Butter Banana Bites! Quick & simple little ‘finger food’ breakfast for my little guy this morning!
Mix together graham cracker crumbs with peanut butter. Add almond milk slowly until dough is sticky enough to roll into balls. Roll into desired size balls and place on wax paper. Pop in the freezer while you melt the chocolate. Place the chocolate in an unsealed zip lock bag and microwave 20-30 seconds or until melted. Snip off the corner of bag and drizzle over balls, place them back in the freezer for the chocolate to set. Slice the banana and top with graham cracker balls!
*NEW PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT – b4 Products single-use gel hand sanitizer packs*
So I’m pretty excited about this new product that I just picked up! I am a TOTAL germaphobe so when I saw these, it was a match made in heaven. My initial intention was to use them daily in my sons lunchbox but school hasn’t started yet and I ended up throwing a few in my purse just to have and now I have found that I am using them daily for everything. I leave the grocery store, I use one. I leave the gym, I use one! I may have found a new addiction.
And after doing a little research on the company I am even more impressed with them. b4 is committed to giving 50% of the profits from their sales to children-focused causes through The Midway Foundation. The Foundation has donated more than $1.2 million to 150 organizations since its inception. They also are a US based company that has teamed up with local charities to provide jobs for their clients, including Goodwill Industries Houston and Brookwood Community which provides vocational opportunities for adults with special needs.
But seriously, how cute is the packaging on these single-use packs! Here are a few product details:
– specially formulated to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria
– light scent
– moisturizes with vitamin e and aloe
– portable for on-the-go
– made in the U.S.A.
I highly encourage you to head over to their website and check them out! I’m extremely happy with them!
