Apple Cars, Have Fun With Food
We all want our families to eat healthy, right? But lets be honest, sometimes it gets boring, doesn’t it?
I thought this was a great way to get kids to eat their healthy snack. It even worked on my 11 year old who thought they were cute enough to eat!
You will need:
An apple cut into slices
Grapes cut in half
Push the toothpicks through the bottom of the slice and place a half grape on the end.
Easy as can be right?! Who wouldn’t love eating this cute snack? Get the kids involved and let them help make them. What a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen.

HOW TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES ~ 5 EASY STEPS.
We had a big family reunion last week, my sister was going to let the kids make s’mores for dessert, but it was too hot to start a fire. PLUS we did not really want the kids all smelling like smoke, so we made Oven S’Mores instead. I have to tell you, these are the BEST WAY to make s’mores. You can make a whole pan of them in less than 3 minutes. Plus you don’t have kids running around with sharp pointed objects, blazing hot, often with a burning marshmallow on the end. But the very best part is the chocolate melts perfect and the marshmallow is toasted to perfection.
To make them all you need is:
Or you could just grab a S’mores Kit
Break the graham crackers in half. On a large baking sheet spread out the graham crackers. Place 1-2 squares of chocolate on each cracker. Place a large marshmallow on top of the chocolate. Put the pan in a preheated oven set to broil. I keep the door open so I can watch them close. I also put the oven rack down LOW so the pan is farther away from the heating element. This allows the marshmallow to toast with less chance of burning. BUT they brown fast so watch them close, all it takes is 2-3 minutes with the oven on broil.
The chocolate will be perfectly melted, and might even be a little hot, so let them cool a few minutes before you serve them to smaller children. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does!
