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

The weather where I live is pretty chilly, and by pretty chilly I mean downright freezing. 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 noodles9176570759_d6f2fb9f81_b1
  • 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 incase 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
