These were so easy to make – awesome summer treat for the kiddos…adults too ūüėČ

So everybody has seen those plastic spoons dipped in peanut butter and then covered in chocolate floating around the Internet.

Well, we just took it to another level at our house! The spoons are made out of chocolate!

I used a chocolate spoon mold that I got at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 to make the spoons. – http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/cross-on-heart-flexible-soft-mold-793729/

I filled it with melted chocolate and then place it in the freezer to set. After I took the spoon out of the mold, I scooped up some peanut butter with it and then dipped it in red melted chocolate. Next I placed them all back in the freezer until it was time to eat them. YUM!

Fun kids afternoon snack!

The sun was made with yellow chocolate & a Wilton mold from Michael’s that was $1.99. I cut it in half and the clouds are made from vanilla greek yogurt & blue food coloring.

The butterflies were made with fruit strips and small fondant cutters.

The people are made with pretzel sticks &¬†Ritz crackers. The faces were made with cheese that I cut with a small fondant cutter. I drew the eyes on with black food coloring & a tooth pick. The hair is made out of sliced deli turkey. The females lips are a piece of candy. The dog is a ‘Walkers Shortbread Scottie Dogs’¬†cookie that¬†I used a¬†little red/black food coloring on. The leash is made from a candy rope.

S’mores Cookie Sandwiches – dessert for my little guy tonight!

Perfect kid friendly cooking! I placed the melted chocolate & Marshmallow cr√®me in two separate zip lock bags with a little of the corners cut off. He was responsible for picking out his letters from the cookie box and then he squeezed the chocolate & marshmallow onto the cookies and smooshed them together! His definitely didn’t look like the picture but they tasted just as good ūüėČ

Perfect kid friendly activity for the summer!

1 box of any flavor of jello mix (85gram box)

20grams of unflavored gelatin mix

1/2cup of COLD water

I used a tiny teddy bear cutter that can be bought on Amazon here!

This little silicone tray would work perfect too!

 

Place the cold water in a small saucepan that has not been on the heat yet. Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin into the water and lightly whisk. Allow the gelatin to bloom for a minute or two and then add in the flavored Jello. Slowly heat the mixture over medium low heat, whisking often until the jello is completely dissolved. It should be a smooth liquid mixture now, not gritty.  Remove from heat and pour into glass measuring cup so that you can either pour into molds or into a baking dish for use with small cookie cutters. The size of baking dish will depend on the thickness that you would like your gummies to be. And then I either place in the refrigerator or freezer until set. I found that it only took about 5-10 minutes to set in the freezer. I peeled the mixture out of the glass baking dish that I used and placed it on the counter and Dylan and I went to town cutting out little bears!
