Nesting Peeps Jello Cups

 

Was thinking of some cute and tasty spring treats to make the kids and thought using peeps in these jello cups would be cool.Funny thing is, Jala had never taste peeps until now.I didn’t think she’d like them, but to my surprise she loved them.However, she also loves marshmallows so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.
When thinking of an option to use so that the peeps could nest, my first thought was to use cereal or something. While looking at the store for some options I came across this edible grass. SCORE!

Ingredients

Multiple Flavors of Jello preferably spring colors (Make according to directions)

Peeps

Whopper Mini Robin Eggs

Edible Grass

Tools

Mixing Bowl

Measuring Cup

Spoon

Glasses (for jello cups)

Quick warning:This sweet dessert is a bit time consuming because you have to wait for each layer to chill.There are directions on the jello boxes to speed up the chill process.I didn’t use this technique until I added the last layer of jello so, use you own discretion.

Let’s get started:

We’re going to begin with our first layer of jello. I began with the watermelon…

After prepping the jello I used a measuring cup to measure out jello to make sure every cup had the same amount (1/2 cup in each cup).Once the jello is poured in each cup I placed it in the fridge to chill.

When the jello was completely filled I began to mix up another flavor.Be sure that once the flavor is mixed you allow it to cool before pouring it in on the previous layer because we don’t want the first layer to melt.Then, you allow this layer to chill in the fridge.

 

We’re going to repeat this process for every layer.The very last layer I used two boxes of jello to make sure the jello cups were full so that when I added the edible decor to the top, It will be visible.

Allow this layer to chill and let’s add the edible grass, rains eggs and peeps.

This is a good time to let the kids get involved.I had to keep my eye on Jala with the peeps.

Hope you and the kids get to make these for spring.Pin the image below to save it for later.

The Cooking Channel: Poképudding

In the kitchen with Jala adding a twist to Banana Pudding and making Pokepudding (the kids helped me name it)Using the standard vanilla pudding and wafers to make the banana pudding. I added a twist by using marshmallows, oreo cookies and red velvet chips ahoy to give the banana pudding the Pokeball look.

Striped Shortbread S’mores

My son asked for ingredients for some S’mores the other day and I went out and bought the normal ingredients.  When they were all gone, my daughter requested some more.  However, this time I picked up some shortbread cookies instead of graham crackers.

Ingredients:

Striped Shortbread Cookies

Marshmallows

Hershey’s Chocolate

shortbread smores

 

We made these delicious treats in minutes and I’m now hooked on using shortbread cookies for S’mores instead of the original graham crackers.  One thing we had to do that you may not have to do depending on the size of marshmallows you buy.  We had to cut ours because they were too large.  Let’s get to these quick easy steps.

 

shortbread smores

 

First, take your marshmallows and place them on skewers and roast them on a medium heat.

Next place the roasted marshmallow on the shortbread cookie, place the Hershey’s chocolate (we used 2 rectangle pieces for each s’more) on top  of marshmallow and place the last shortbread cookie on top.

Lastly, enjoy these goodies with your kids, family or friends.

The Cooking Channel:Simple Dessert – Icecream Cinnamon Roll Sandwich

image

As many of you know… I’m not a baker. The most I bake are cookies, muffins….you get me. 

Well, lately I’ve been wanting dessert after dinner.  At least once a week or every other week.  Yesterday I remembered that I had some cinnamon rolls (in a can) in the fridge and we had some vanilla icecream. 

I popped open the can, placed them on a oiled cookie sheet and cooked according to instructions on can.

After they were finished cooking, I used the frosting provided to coat the top of the cinnamon rolls. 

Next, I placed a cinnamon roll at the bottom of each coffee mug. I’m sure this would do great in other glasses too.and for many occasions. Another thing…you can wait for the rolls to cool or serve hot.  If served hot like I served them add more icecream because your icecream will melt faster.

Then, take your icecream (I used vanilla) and spoon in 3-4 scoops or 5 😉

Lastly, take another cinnamon roll and place on top.

Delicious!!!!! 1 can of cinnamon rolls will make enough for 4 people.
