It may not feel like spring out there but it is here! Spring is here! I am going to celebrate a little with my spring push pop cupcakes. This one was originally posted over at Crafts Unleashed but I thought we would celebrate here a bit as well. These are super festive and easy to make. So bring it on spring we are ready for ya!
Carrot Cookies from Nutter Butters Recipe
Valentine’s Day Pops
- Mini candy canes
- Popsicle sticks
- White almond bark or candy coating
- Edible google eyes
- Red paste food coloring
Melt the white almond bark or candy coating in the microwave according to the package directions. Lay out two mini candy canes and a popsicle stick as shown in the photo below. Put everything on waxed or parchment paper.
Use a spoon to pour the melted white coating into the candy canes. Smooth with your spoon before the product hardens. Add google eyes quickly and press into coating. Dip a toothpick into red paste food coloring and draw on a mouth (again before product hardens).
Allow pops to harden completely on wax or parchment paper. Lift from paper and your Valentine’s Day pops are ready to be served at the class party.
5 Minute Monsters Halloween Treat Ingredients:
- Sandwich cookies (any that you like)
- candy melts (I used blue and green for my treats.)
- lollipop sticks
- candy eyes
- bakers twine in black and orange
- small treat bags
5 Minute Monsters Halloween Treat Instructions:
Melt the candy melts according to the package directions. Cover the sandwich cookie on both sides.
Dip lollipop stick into candy coating as well and lay cookie on top of stick. Place eyes on each monster while the candy coating is still wet.
Repeat with additional colors and eyes as desired. I used one eye for the green and two eyes for the blue to mimic Mike and Sully.
Place the treats into your plastic treat bags and use baker’s twine to secure.
Fill a container with these for your child’s classroom this Halloween. My 5 minute Monsters Halloween treat recipe is sure to be the hit of any Halloween party. Plus they will only take you minutes to make. That is a win win y’all.
I actually painted my box to get it white. I painted the outside only so food is still okay on the inside. I used about 4 light coats to get coverage. Then just stick on the “B” sticker, add on buttons and google eyes with hot glue, and tie on some fun baker’s twine. Super simple and a slightly elegant touch to your Halloween party.
Now lets make those ugly witch’s fingers. Just grab some green candy melts in the crafty food section of your store. Then coat your pretzel rods with the melted candy and add a sliced almond finger nail. Perfectly easy, gross, and spooky…..that is the perfect Halloween treat!
The witch’s fingers stand perfectly in the popcorn box for a freakishly fun display at your Halloween party. I hope you will try my witch’s fingers Halloween recipe for yourself.
Spooky Eye Cake Pop Ingredients
- donut holes (yep just from the bakery)
- frosting (your choice of flavors but needs to be white for the eyes)
- red paste food coloring
- sucker sticks or popsicle sticks
- candy eyeballs
- mason jar or other method to stand cake pops
Spooky Eye Cake Pop Instructions
Remove lid and foil wrap from canned icing. Microwave icing for 20 seconds and stir. Put stick inside of one donut hole and dip into the icing until covered. Add candy eyeball by pressing into icing. Use toothpick dipped in red paste food coloring to add “blood” around eye.
Stand up in mason jar or by other means to allow to harden. I used tissue paper in my mason jar to make sure the pops did not touch. Serve immediately or after the icing has hardened. See you have made quick and easy spooky eye cake pops in 5 minutes. The best part? No one will ever know you didn’t slave in the kitchen all day.
Orange Sherbet Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe
- Orange sherbet
- Store bought cookies
- Chocolate sprinkles
Allow orange sherbet to sit out and soften for a while. Spread between your choice of store bought cookies. Roll the edges in sprinkles. Serve immediately or place in freezer until serving time. Cookies will soften if not served immediately.
Y’all stay cool this summer with my orange sherbet ice cream sandwich recipe!
No Bake Flag Dessert Recipe
- 1 box of sugar or shortbread cookies (preferably square or rectangular in shape)
- 1 8 oz cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- fruit (for the flag blueberries and strawberries)
Mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spread over cookies. Arrange cookies in a flag type shape. Add blueberries and strawberries as desired. Best if eaten right away or within an hour or so. Cookies begin to soften after longer periods. Any fruit can be substituted for different holidays or occasions.
- Pudding cups
- Nutter Butter Bites
- Nature Valley Granola Thins
- Black writing icing
- White cake icing (either in a pastry bag or the can/tube with a fitted writing tip)
- Edible markers in pink and black
- Green food coloring
Open up a pudding cup and push any pudding stuck to the top down. Add a layer of “grass” aka colored coconut.
Then just shove that groundhog down into his hole. If you are making these ahead of time for a classroom, I would shove him in his pudding cup very last minute so the granola bar does not get soggy.
Serve up and enjoy as you wait to see whether or not the groundhog will predict snow or sun for the next six weeks.
I am joining in with some other ladies today to bring you tons of Groundhog Day fun. Visit these blogs for more ideas.
