Rainbow Yogurt Popsicle Party Treats

I’m excited to share some adorable new Rainbow Confetti Popsicle Party Treats that I made with the new Wilton DIY-Lish Lollipop Candy-Making Kit. Whether you’re hosting a birthday party or looking for something fun to do with kids this summer, this no-bake recipe is the cutest sweet treat!

Chill out this summer and balance a homemade popsicle lollipop with healthy Greek yogurt topped with rainbow sprinkles. This simple recipe looks adorable on a popsicle party table and since there’s no baking required, it’s also fun for kids to whip up on their own.

Popsicle Lollipop Kit

Popsicles are the cutest, so when I heard that Wilton made a Lollipop Candy-Making Kit that looks like popsicles, we had to try it! This fun kit includes a popsicle-shaped mold, Candy Melts candy, rainbow sprinkles and all the tools you need to melt, mold and decorate.

Easy Popsicle Lollipops

You really can’t mess these cute lollipops up! The Wilton kit includes enough items to make 12 lollipops. I think ours turned out really cute.

This food craft took us about 30 minutes total. The melted candy dries fast, so popsicles are done quickly. This is a great kit to help bring out the creative side in you!

Greek Yogurt Confetti Treats

There’s nothing more fun than rainbow sprinkles! I used the leftover rainbow jimmies from the kit as a topping for the Greek yogurt. I thought about making ice cream sundaes, but Greek yogurt has such great health benefits and less sugar, so I choose to go the healthier route instead.

What is the difference Greek yogurt and regular yogurt?

Greek yogurt is made by straining out the extra whey in regular yogurt. It makes the yogurt thicker, creamier and tangier. Plain Greek yogurt has less sugar and more protein than regular yogurt as well.

The Best Dill Pickle Dip!

I could eat dill pickles all day, so this amazing dill pickle dip is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at a party. There is nothing better than my family’s homemade refrigerator dill pickles, but you don’t need to make your own pickles for this amazing dill pickle dip. Just get your favorite brand of dill pickles, mince some fresh dill and parsley then mix them all with a few more ingredients for the perfect dill pickle dip!

I personally love dipping crispy waffle potato chips into my dip, but you could also serve with your favorite vegetables for a healthier version. For this recipe, I used low fat ingredients to balance out the calories in the chips. Not that it really matters, because I would probably eat this entire plate of chips if it was in front of me!

Dill pickles and potato chips are seriously one of my all time favorite savory snacks together. This dill pickle dip brings both of my favorites together making it very hard to resist for sure!

Of course, you’ll need Chex Cereal! I’m so addicted to Wheat Chex that I always have some in the house.

How to Use Bacon Safely in Chex Mix

I used bacon seasoning in place of fresh bacon. Since bacon needs to be refrigerated, I didn’t want to chance my Chex Party Mix getting soggy in the refrigerator.

If you want to use fresh bacon in your recipe, be sure to eat the Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix within two hours after cooking the bacon.

Omit fresh bacon if giving as a gift or serving at parties where it will be out for hours. Any bacon flavored seasoning will work. I found some bacon and chives seasoning at my grocery store and it turned out fabulous!

Grilled Chicken Flatbread Two Ways

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. The opinions and text are all mine.

We’re soaking in the last lazy days of summer…relishing the fact that I don’t have to care that no one is dressed, fed, or out of their jammies by 8:30 AM — the normal time when the bus comes cruising through the neighborhood during the school year.

But it’s time to prepare for a shift to a more regimented schedule—school days are NO JOKE.

Especially when you add on those extracurricular activities.

My kiddos are both in school all day and then attend Taekwondo class 3-4 afternoons each week…and it takes A LOT to fuel these kiddos through their school day and then to power through an hour of Taekwondo.

We are past the point of fruit snacks, people. No granola bar is going to fit this energy bill.

THESE KIDS NEED FOOD.

Real food that I can whip up quickly, that they’ll happily gobble up, and that is made from pantry staples that I always have around—the sort of pantry staples that I can find conveniently at a local Dollar General store! (Don’t miss our $50 Dollar General gift card giveaway at the end of this post.)

Like these Grilled Chicken Flatbreads.

The key to the handy dandy nature of these snacks are the fact that I used Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken. They are precooked, so warming them up in a takes no time (3-4 minutes) and I can pull out just a few pieces and go about my merry business. That means that I can get these delicious flatbread in the hungry hands of my kids in about 6-7 minutes. BOOM.

And because my kids like the illusion of variety, I have two versions — a BBQ Cheddar and a Chicken Parmesan.

 

Because our schedule is tight, I use the minutes before the afternoon school bus arrives to prep these so they are toasty and ready when the kiddos come barreling through the door. That way they have time to sit down, enjoy their snack, decompress from the day a bit, and get ready for the next part of the day.

You can pick up a whole basket full of handy and delicious Tyson® and Jimmy Dean® products from Dollar General that can help you get yummy food into the bellies of you and your family, even when your school day schedule is BANANAS.

Buster Moon Pie Muddy Buddies

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

Friday is movie night at our house. And it’s becoming a production. It starts with takeout—we rotate who gets to pick (because mediating the inevitable disagreement between two kiddos does not make for a happy Mama) and then we pile up on my bed and watch a movie (also picked by the lucky “featured” family member that week.)

My son has already picked out our movie for this week…

SING!

When we saw this in theaters it inspired MANY sing-and-dance performances by my children for the following weeks.

I’m expecting their love of this show and the songs to evolve into downright obsession.

This movie was so sweet and so fun and warmed my mom heart so much with its messages—be brave, be yourself, never give up—it’s the trifecta of inspirational stories!

I guess I’m pretty excited for Friday night too.

You can pick up your copy of the Sing Special Edition and giggle through three new mini movies and a bunch of musical extras. For the love of pete, this movie has over 65 songs in it! Plus a new song by Stevie Wonder (featuring Ariana Grande.)

You can also win a copy from us at the end of this post!

Since my kids are so pumped, I’m going to up the ante on our Friday movie night tradition and break out a special snack.

I’m calling them Buster’s Moon Pie Muddy Buddies, in honor of our favorite koala/theater owner/musical visionary, Buster Moon, and my favorite chocolate marshmallow combo.

And since I don’t want my kids to start the movie without me, this snack has to come together quick.

Easy enough!

BUSTER MOON PIE MUDDY BUDDIES

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 ¾ cups chocolate chips
  • ⅔ cup peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Combine Rice Chex, Golden Grahams cereal, and mini marshmallows in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine 1 ¼ cups chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Microwave for 1 minute and then stir until it is nice and smooth. (Microwave 15-30 seconds longer if needed to get a smooth consistency.)
  3. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Pour mixture over cereal and marshmallows, stirring to coat.
  5. You’ll have to do the next steps in two batches…
  6. Place half of the mixture in a gallon Ziploc bag with 1 cup of powdered sugar.
  7. Toss bag to coat mixture with powdered sugar.
  8. Remove coated muddy buddies from the bag, and repeat steps 6 and 7 with the remaining mixture.
  9. Allow mixture to cool. Or eat immediately with both hands.

We’re giving you a chance to win a copy of the SING Special Edition Blu-ray (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD) for your home theater collection! To enter, just leave a comment below. Say “hello” and we’ll pick one random comment as the winner on Friday, March 31st at 5:00 PM.

The Wild Life Parrot Fruit Snack

How to make a Healthy Parrot Fruit Snack for Kids! A simple treat for an after school snack or a birthday party. Fun food idea inspired by The Wild Life animated movie.

Today, we’re making a healthy fruit snack for kids that looks just like a parrot! I love coming up with fun food and party ideas for the latest movies, so was thrilled when the folks from The Wild Life asked me to create something cute for the new animated movie in theaters September 9th.

How to make a Healthy Parrot Fruit Snack for Kids! A simple treat for an after school snack or a birthday party. Fun food idea inspired by The Wild Life animated movie.

On a tiny exotic island, an outgoing parrot and his quirky animal companions befriend a marooned Robinson Crusoe. When their harmonious lives are disrupted by two savage cats, they discover the true power of friendship against all odds.

Red is my favorite color, so of course the Parrot named Mak caught my eye. Plus, he looked like a funny character… so a parrot treat it is! This parrot fun food idea would be the perfect healthy treat for an after school snack.

Wouldn’t your kids be excited to find this waiting for them when they got home from school? I know I would! It’s really easy to make and would also be adorable for The Wild Life themed birthday party table.
