If you ever have a craving for something ooey, gooey, sweet and delicious, then these Rice Krispies are just what you need! They take one minute to make, you make them in the microwave, and they are just the right size for easy snacking. Here is how to make them!

Ingredients:

  • ½ tbsp. unsalted butterdownload
  • 4 large or ½ cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup of Rice Krispies cereal

In a coffee mug, microwave the butter on high until it is melted, then add in the marshmallows. Microwave them for 20 more seconds, make sure they don’t overflow! Remove from the microwave and stir until smooth, then stir in the cereal. Once it is well blended, you can enjoy your very own rice crispy in a mug!

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

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

Buffalo Wings, Pretzel Edition!

Football season is here! I can BARELY contain my excitement!! High school football is more my forte, but I also enjoy watching the occasional NFL game or two with my friends and family. I have a question for you. What food screams “football snack HERE!”? If you answered any food with the word “buffalo” in it I would have to agree. Buffalo chicken dip is one of my weaknesses, but now I have found another! It is buffalo wing pretzel sticks. All the goodness of buffalo dip in crunchy form! If you want you can even dip them in ranch. These would even be a good school snack to toss in a Ziploc baggie. Here is how to make them!

Ingredients:1df04bc2f6175c4b67b533ffb87dba47

  • ½ cup buffalo wing sauce
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 16 oz bag pretzel sticks
  • Ranch dressing for dipping

After preheating your oven to 300F line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a saucepan melt butter, wing sauce and Worcestershire sauce and cook for about 5 minutes. Pour the pretzels into a bowl and then drizzle the wing sauce over them. Stir them to coat and then spread them out on the baking sheet, baking them for 30 minutes and then stirring them around every 10 minutes.

Now grab some ranch or bleu cheese dip and go to town!

XOXO, Chels
