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. I picked up the ‘Animal Friends’ set just to try them out and I will DEFINITELY be getting all of the others now! The set comes with 4 different faces (panda, pig, frog & cat) that you can either cut out or impress into your bread, cheese, meat, etc! The design possibilities are endless and the whole set was less than $10!

You can purchase these HERE on amazon.

I highly encourage you to check them out! They are getting 2 thumbs up from me.

I made the silver dollar pancakes & then hollowed them out in the middle using a cup cake corer, stuffed them with 1.5 marshmallows and microwaved them for about 20-30 seconds. Finished them with some chocolate sauce & graham cracker crumbs. Oh and used a lighter to torch them a little bit!

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.

Super easy homemade Gummy Bears!

Super easy homemade Gummy Bears!

Super easy homemade Gummy Bears!

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!
