Dipped Marshmallow Treats (for Adam’s school fair)

October 8, 2014 AT 8:50 am Leave a Comment

 

Oh, y’all.

It’s been one of those weeks already.  Smile

One where you are going a hundred miles an hour and you can’t hardly come up for air. 

You know what I am talking about. 

Last night was the 5th grade Entrepreneur Fair at Adam’s School. 

Adam had to create something he could sell at the fair, so we came up with these dipped marshmallow treats.

Dipped Marshmallow Treats

 

These were so fun and easy to make!

We used…

  • large and small marshmallows
  • pretzels
  • straws
  • chocolate, white chocolate, and orange candy melts
  • caramel
  • sprinkles
  • graham crackers

I got the cute fall straws at the dollar store.

We used the straws for the large marshmallows and pretzels for the small ones.

We set up our dipping stations all over the kitchen…

And dipped away!

It was messy, but fun! Smile

My favorite was the ones we dipped in chocolate and then rolled in graham crackers.  S’mores on a stick!  Yum!

I also liked the ones dipped in caramel and then chocolate.  Watch out!  Smile

The marshmallows looked colorful and pretty on Adam’s table.

And Adam was super proud of his “store.” 

(Okay, yes.  I added the bow and doilies.  It’s all about presentation, y’all!)  Smile

dipped marshmallow treats

The best part about the whole night was that they sold like hot cakes, and this made my “business owner” very happy!

 

Way to go, Adam!!

 

 


 


Baked Blueberry Lemon Donuts!

September 29, 2014 AT 8:56 am 1 Comment

Good Morning all my friends at Beneath my Heart!

I’m so happy to be bringing some of my

Baked Blueberry Lemon Donuts for y’all to enjoy today!

I love it when fresh blueberries are on sale and I can bake with them to my little hearts content. I also like to freeze a bunch to use through the winter too.

Blueberries are one of my favorites~ did you realize how good they are for you?

They are.

Blueberries are packed with Vitamin C, Fiber, Manganese all of which help our hearts, our brains, our insulin responce, and they’re cancer fighting too! All that wrapped up in each flavor-bursting-bite. Mmmm mmm.

Triple Berry Banana Bread

April 24, 2014 AT 8:58 am 6 Comments

Good morning to all my friends at Beneath My Heart.

It’s Ruthie from Whats Cooking with Ruthie and I’m thrilled to be here to share another fabulous recipe with y’all!

I was overweight 14 years ago, (read my weight loss story here) and I lost 95 pounds over a 4 year period. I’ve kept it off by making healthy changes to my lifestyle and a big part of that was healthier techniques in my cooking. This recipe has some of my favorite reduce calories/fat tricks in it.

A couple of things I like to do are: replace 80% of the oil or butter with fat-free greek yogurt, replace one egg yolk with 2 egg whites (which reduces the fat by 4.5 grams and cholesterol by 184 milligrams). I also replaced almost half of the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour which bumps up the nutrition value. You’ll never be able to taste any of these healthier changes but your waistline will definitely thank you :)

Triple Berry Banana Bread

is packed with delicious-good-for-you-ingredients!
