This week the temperature is going to be in the 100’s almost every day where I live! This heat has me trying to think about refreshing treats that I can quickly whip up and enjoy. This recipe is easy, simple, healthy and delicious. Here is how to make frozen yogurt blueberry bites.

Ingredients:

        1 cup blueberries

        ½ cup vanilla yogurt

        Toothpicks

Place a blueberry on a toothpick and dip it in yogurt. Place berries on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in your freezer for about an hour. Then, enjoy! You can also store these in an airtight container in your freezer. I love eating these as a snack while watching a movie, or enjoying them outside while I read on my porch.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Take a 9×13 pan and line it with foil and spray it with non-stick spray. Place butter, peanut butter, marshmallows, and chocolate in a large bowl. Heat it in 30 second increments, and stir it between each time. Do this until the mixture is melted, then stir in the rice cereal. Pour this mixture into the 9×13 pan, pressing it in. Let it cool, then cut into squares. Place 1 cup of powdered sugar into a bowl and coat each square with powdered sugar.  Then enjoy!

The weather where I live is pretty unpredictable. One day it will be a gorgeous warm day, and the next it is freezing and rainy. And when the weather is cold, there is nothing better than a nice hot snack to warm your tummy right up. If you are looking for an easy, 5 minute meal for one, then look no further! Here is mac n cheese in a mug.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup elbow noodles
  • ½ cup milk or water (milk if you want creamy noodles)
  • ½ cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

Add the milk/water and noodles to an oversized mug and place it on a large plate just in case you have spillage while it is in the microwave. Microwave the mug on the plate for 1 minute, then stir, and microwave another minute. Stir it again, then check your noodles. If they aren’t quite done, microwave them an additional 3o seconds. After the noodles are cooked, if you are using water, pour out the water that is left, and if you are using milk don’t pour it out. Add in the cheese and stir well. Now you are ready to dig in!

So, if you want some yummy comfort food but don’t want to make the whole box, make your own mug!

XOXO, Chels

It’s Girl Scout Cookie season!! I see girls selling them everywhere, and the temptation to buy one of every flavor of cookie is real! My favorite Girl Scout Cookie has to be the Samoa. They are so gooey and crunchy at the same time. Today I am sharing a recipe for Samoa inspired rice crispy treats that are to die for!

Ingredients:
– 1/3 cup butter
– 5 cups mini marshmallows
11 oz. bag of caramels
– 2 tbs heavy whipping cream
– 1 1/2 cups coconut
– 3 cups milk chocolate chips

Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add in the marshmallows and stir it all together until the marshmallows are completely melted. Pour in the cereal and stir until it is completely coated. Pour this mixture into a 9×13 pan and press down evenly. In a medium sauce pan combine the caramels and cream over medium heat. Stir them until the caramel is melted and smooth. Stir the coconut into the melted caramel and pour evenly over the top of the rice crispy treats. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring until they are smooth and melted. Slice the crispy treats into bars and remove from the pan. Dip the bottom of each treat into the chocolate. Then drizzle the rest of the chocolate over the top of the bars. Let the chocolate cool and then serve!

Delish, am I right?

XOXO, Chels

March means St. Patrick’s Day themed everything! Clover leaves and green are everywhere, so why not celebrate with a snack for the season? Here is a treat worthy of a leprechaun!

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups of Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 bag of green candy melts
  • 1 drop of peppermint essential oil
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar

Add the rice cereal to a large mixing bowl and set that aside. Pour the green candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and melt them in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until the candies are melted. Once they are melted, stir in the essential oil. Add the powdered sugar to a large Ziploc bag and set it aside. Pour the melted candy mixture into the mixing bowl and mix it with the cereal until it is covered. Pour the mixture into the Ziploc bag and shake it so the cereal is covered with powdered sugar. Pour the puppy chow onto a large baking sheet and allow it to cool. Then store it in a Ziploc bag!

This stuff wouldn’t last long around me! I’m a sucker for mint flavored sweets.

XOXO, Chels

We all get the munchies, when we just need something sweet to sink our teeth into! I have been trying my best to eat healthy, as I am sure a lot of us are. Lucky for us I found a delish recipe for healthy cookies that you can feel good about eating! And with only 3 ingredients they are so easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • Handfull of rasins (or chocolate chips)

Mash 2 ripe bananas in a bowl. Then mix in the oats and rasins or chocolate chips. Line a baking sheet with foil and place small balls of the batter on the sheet. Bake the cookies for 15 minute or so at 350 degrees.  These are so easy to make and you probably have these ingredients on hand!

If you want you can add a little bit of cinnamon or vanilla to sweeten them up before you bake them go for it! These are easy and fun to modify.

Enjoy!

Puppy chow is probably on my list of top 10 favorite foods. Not even kidding. I cannot stop myself when there is a bowl of it in front of me. It just magically disappears. Since fall is upon us and everything is now pumpkin flavored, what sounds better than pumpkin flavored puppy chow? Not much. Not much at all. Here is how to make pumpkin spice puppy chow!

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon1473888485-yummy-pumpkin-spice-puppy-chow
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 cups candy pumpkins

Pour the Chex cereal into a bowl and put to the side. Melt the candy melts for 20 seconds, stir, melt, and stir until they are melted. Stir 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, the cloves, allspice and nutmeg in to the candy melts until it is combined. Pour this mixture onto the cereal and stir gently to coat all of the squares. Be super gentle! Pour the powdered sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon into a large Ziploc baggie. Pour in the coated squares and shake until they are all coated in sugar. Pour in the pumpkins and toss some more. Store it in an air tight container, or just eat them all right then and there! No judgments here.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

I am a lover of healthy snacks, but sometimes a girl craves a handful of greasy, salty potato chips. Ya feel? Lucky for you (and me), I found a recipe for homemade potato chips that are low fat, cheap, and made in your microwave! Yummy snack here we come!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large russet potato, scrubbed and sliced thinly16117462567_751b5aacf8_b
  • Salt
  • Optional: olive oil and other seasonings.

Slice your potato very thin into 1/8 or 1/16 inch slices. Put the slices directly into cold water and let them sit for 5 minutes, then rinse them in cold water until clear. Use paper towels to dry the slices, then line a glass plate or tray with parchment paper and arrange the slices on it. Make sure they do not touch each other or they will stick together. If you like you can sprinkle your slices with salt or seasonings, or you can even brush them with olive oil. Place them in the microwave and cook them on high for 3 minutes. After that, flip the slices over and microwave them on 50% power for about 2:30. If you see slices starting to turn brown, take them out and continue cooking the rest. Keep doing these steps with the rest of your potato slices until they are all cooked. If you don’t gobble them up right away, store them in an airtight container for future snacking!

Simple snacking at its finest.

XOXO, Chels
