Smores, Lighter Way to Satisfy a SweetTooth
Who doesn’t love a smore? My kids ask for them constantly but we don’t make them very often. We usually do them over the fire pit maybe a couple times each summer, but they could eat them every day if I would let them! Not to mention, they aren’t exactly the healthiest snack in the world. Sometimes you just need a treat though, right? These satisfy the craving, but the serving sizes are much smaller, and they are lighter than the original. If you are craving the classic smore taste of summer, give these a try!
You will need:
chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
Begin by crushing up a couple of graham crackers. You don’t need very many, I used 3 and had a lot of crumbs left over. Once they are crushed, place the crumbs in a small, shallow bowl that will be easy to dip in.
Melt some chocolate. I started with 2 squares and got about 15 marshmallows out of it. Holding the end of your marshmallow, dip the other end into the chocolate. Let it drip off into your bowl.
Then quickly dip it into your graham cracker crumbs. Place it chocolate side up on wax paper to cool. The chocolate will harden.
There you have it! These would make great finger foods for a party or picnic, or use them as a party favor in a cute vellum bag! For now, my kids are just eating them. Store them in an airtight container and have them on hand when you have a craving or want to indulge a sweet tooth without the guilt!

On the Go Veggie Cups
Are you planning a party and are looking for an easy to put together, healthy snack to serve? Maybe you are going to the park with the kids and want to bring something healthy for a snack? These are practical, easy to make and assemble and can be thrown together quickly and who doesn’t love an easy snack?!
If you are serving for a party or get together, you will want some small,clear, plastic cups to serve in. If you are going out or taking them on the road you may want to consider small jars or snack containers with lids. Or take the bottle of ranch with you with some small cups and assemble when you are there.
Squirt some ranch into the bottom of each cup, add veggie slices of your choice, and you are ready to go! Any veggie would be great; carrots, celery, bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, the possibilities really can be endless!
For the ease of the party guests, or your children, cut the veggies into thin sticks and put one end into the ranch in the cup. Now you also don’t have to worry about “double dipping” in your dip dish!
