Ice Cream Cone Cornucopia Snacks~Thanksgiving Snacks

Here is another quick, yet adorable snack to add to the kids table at your Thanksgiving feast!  How about  making them this week when the kids get out of school to celebrate the Holiday weekend?  I know my kids loved them!

You will need:

Sugar ice cream cones

Straw

Cup of warm water

Microwave

Filler for your cornucopias (we used trail mix)

Plastic wrap to cover

Ribbon, twine, or something to wrap around the plastic to keep it closed

Begin by getting a small cup of warm water.  Take your straw, dip it in the water, and hold the end to trap some warm water inside the straw.  Dump that into the inside of your sugar cone.  While that softens it up from the inside, dip the outside bottom 1- 1 1/2 inches into the warm water.  Hold there for 20 seconds.  Place in the microwave for 20 seconds.  When it is done, promptly remove it and gently curl it around your straw.  Hold there for several seconds before sliding the straw gently out of the curve.

Let the cones set for a few minutes to give it time to harden up a little.  Fill it up with something yummy.  We used trail mix from the bulk section at Winco.

Rip off a small amount of  plastic wrap and gently wrap it around the opening and tie it off with some ribbon, twine, or something cute to keep it shut.

Healthy Halloween Recipes ~ Monster Eye Salad

Healthy Halloween Recipes, Monster Eye Salad, Easy Halloween Recipes, Halloween treats

This is such a simple idea but my kids LOVED it.  We had Monster Eye Salad as a side for dinner tonight and they gobbled it right up.   Funny thing is, is it is just a NORMAL salad, with a few candy Eye Balls  on top.  We did cut and put all the “circle shaped food” on top to play up the eyes.  But other than that is was just a normal green salad.  Hope your family enjoys this idea  as much as mine did.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket Recipe ~ How to make Hot Pockets Fast Dinner Ideas

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleuChicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket Recipe

Does your family like Chicken Cordon Bleu, then here is a Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket recipe that you have got to try! All the tasty goodness in an easy to eat “Hot Pocket” crust.  My whole family loves this recipe.  You can make extra Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket and then freeze them for easy lunch ideas later in the week.

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleu

Recipe Yields 8 Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket

You will need:

  • 1 cup cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 80z cream cheese softened
  • 1 cups italian blend cheese
  • 2 80z cans of crescent rolls
  • 1 egg whipped (for egg wash)

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleuIf you are in a big hurry you can even use canned chicken.  But my favorite way is to put a chicken breast in the crockpot with a little onion, celery, lemon pepper.  Let it cook then shred it.  You can make up a big batch of shredded chicken and put it in freezer bags for quick meal options.

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleu

In a medium sized mixing bowl stir together the chicken, ham, onions, garlic, parsley, cream cheese and italian cheese.  Open up your can of crescent rolls.  Each can will come with 8 triangle shaped rolls, but you want 4 rectangle rolls. Take your fingers and firmly press the two triangles together to form 4 rectangle rolls.  Divide the chicken ham mixture in half, in the bowl.  Then divide each half into four parts. This will give you 8 portions (to put into your 8 rolls).

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleu

Place the chicken and ham mixture on one side of the crescent roll.  Take the other half of the dough and fold it over the top, use a fork to seal the edged and press the top and bottom of the dough together. In a small bowl whisk  egg with 1 tablespoon water, to create an egg wash.  Use a basting brush to brush the egg wash onto the rolls.
