This is a fun recipe to bring to any game day or football party.  Best part is you can make them the night before so no need to rush around the day of your party. Perfect finger food or snack. If you did not want to go to all the trouble of melting the caramel you could always just use peanut butter.  Hope you enjoy this recipe as you cheer for your favorite team! Be sure and follow our Football Party Pinterest Board for even more ideas.

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
Two 10 oz. bags of mini marshmallows

Valentines Healthy Treats, Grape Hearts, quick and easy to make perfect for school parties, Healthy Snacks, DIYValentine’s Day Grape Hearts ~ Healthy Valentines Treats

Valentine’s Day is all about the hearts, so why not treat kids to these tasty and healthy hearts shaped grapes? You can make your own Valentine’s Day heart grapes in just minutes, and using no more than a handful of grapes and dollar store heart picks. Here is how you can get started crafting your own, just in time for Valentine’s Day parties and gatherings! Perfect for school parties or think how excited your kids would be to find these inside thier lunch box!

Supplies needed:

  • Large, fresh grapes (red grapes work great!)
  • Heart picks (sold at Dollar Tree in a package along with cupcake cups)
  • Knife

If you can’t find the picks like we used here, you can always use toothpicks to hold your hearts together. As mentioned ours were found at Dollar Tree, sold along with the cupcake cups as cupcake toppers.

Directions:

1. Begin by washing and drying your grapes well.
2. Cut each grape in half at an angle. Refer to the photo to see how to make this cut. Simply cutting the grape in half won’t work. You need to be sure the cut is made at an angle.
3. Turn one grape upside down so that when pressed together, the grapes make a heart shape.
4. Run a skewer, toothpick, or pick through the grapes to hold them together and retain the heart shape.

Your Valentine’s Day grape hearts are ready to be enjoyed. Have children munch on them as is or you can serve them with yogurt or fruit dip.

Groundhog Day Pudding Cup Snacks

Groundhog day is February 2nd, which will be here before you know it!  I don’t know about you, but I am really hoping we don’t end up with that extra six weeks of winter he always predicts this year!   Groundhog day falls on a Sunday this year, so wouldn’t these cute little pudding cups be perfect for a Sunday night dessert?

What you will need:

Instant chocolate pudding

Milk (to mix the pudding)

plastic cups (the ones I used were 20 oz)

Nutter butter cookies

Mini chocolate chips

Chocolate graham crackers

Icing (to stick on the chocolate chips)

Begin by preparing your pudding so it can set.  I used a large box and got 5 cups 2/3 full out of it.  Let that set in the fridge.

Crush some chocolate graham crackers in a baggie so they are finely crushed.  Set aside.

With your icing (I bought a tiny tube of white for this but somehow it didn’t make it home with me so I had to use what I had on hand which was red.) put 2 small dots on top of the nutter butter for the ears and 2 on the front for the eyes.  Place a mini chocolate chip on each of those spots.

Now your pudding should be set up.  Scoop it into your clear cups.  Leave room at the top for the “dirt” (or graham cracker crumbs).  If you drip any or get it on the side, just wipe it up with a napkin to make it look nice.  Now sprinkle with a good helping of crackers for your dirt.

Its time to place your groundhog in the ground.  Push him down so just his head is peeking up above the ground.

That’s it!  So, did he see his shadow?  I don’t think he had time to at our house before the poor little guy got eaten up!  This was a great dessert for the kids to help make also and was a fun project for all of us!
