Grapes are the perfect snack to take to school with you. They aren’t messy, they are easy to grab and go, and they are tasty! Want to make them even tastier? Toss Nutella and nuts into the mix! Here is how to make tasty Nutella grape bites that are perfect for school lunches, snacks, and even great to take to friend’s houses! The best part is…they only take 5 minutes to make!!

Ingredients:

  • Nutellagrape2-e1413946464385
  • Bag of green grapes
  • Nuts (any kind you want. I prefer pecans!)

Wash your grapes and then let them dry. Dip the bottom half of each grape in the Nutella, and then roll them in the crushed nuts. I like to freeze my grapes after that to make them a cool treat, but you can store them at room temperature if you prefer! These are a great when you just want a “pop” of dessert and need a quick way to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Your friends will be swiping these out of your backpack once they see you with these tasty treats!

XOXO, Chels

Christmas time is here! I repeat, CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE! And with Christmas come delicious treats. Today’s delicious Christmas-themed sweet is holiday popcorn that will remind you of the Grinch himself!

Ingredients:grinch-popcorn2

  • Microwave popcorn
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • Blue and yellow food coloring
  • Another 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • Red M&Ms

Pop your microwave popcorn, and once it is done pull out all of the un-popped kernels. Next we make the marshmallow mixture. Melt ¼ cup of butter in a saucepan, and once it is melted add the 3 cups of marshmallows. Stir together until they are melted, and turn the heat off. Add 2 drops of yellow food coloring, mix until it is bright yellow, and then add a small drop of blue. Stir it until it turns green, then pour this mixture over the popcorn. Gently mix it in slowly until the popcorn is mostly covered. Cover a cookie sheet with foil, then pour the popcorn mixture onto it. Drizzle some of the marshmallow mixture over it so the M&Ms and marshmallows have something to stick to, then sprinkle ½ cup of mini marshmallows and M&Ms onto the popcorn. Allow it to cool, then eat up!

Your friends will love this festive treat fit for a Christmas movie night.

XOXO, Chels

These aren’t your average nachos…they are caramel apple nachos! I cannot decide if I like these or regular nachos better, so I guess I will just have to keep on eating both! 😉

These nachos are a fun fall themed treat. Caramel apples make me think of autumn, would you agree? You can even go apple picking with a bunch of friends (or a hot date!) to collect a few of your necessary ingredients. Here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 gala apples
  • 3-4 granny smith applescaramelapplenachosbutterwithasideofbread4
  • Caramel ice cream topping
  • White chocolate candy coating
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Heath toffee bits

Pour the Heath bits and mini chips into 2 separate bowls. Cut a ziploc bag at the corner for the white chocolate drizzle. Cut your apples into slices and place them on the dish you want to serve them. Melt the white chocolate by placing the white chocolate candy coating in a small sauce pan on low heat. Stir it constantly until it is melted and smooth. Pour it into the cut Ziploc bag and drizzle it onto your apples. Next, drizzle the caramel ice cream topping onto them, then sprinkle the toffee bits and mini chocolate chips.

This recipe is super quick to make. Caramel apple nachos + a Halloween movie= the perfect autumn evening!

XOXO, Chels

I have posted a bunch of s’mores recipes lately…but can you blame me? They are just so good! There are so many awesome variations! This one might be my fav because it is the least messy of the recipes! Here is how to make your very own s’mores in a bag.

Ingredients:

  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips
  • Bagged cookies, like Teddy Grahams or animal crackersfun-camping-idea-and-snack

Pick out your preferred cookies. Then pour the chocolate chips in the bag and roast your marshmallow. I am a “slightly burned” kinda gal. After you have roasted the marshmallow to perfection, smush the marshmallow into the bag and mix it all up with the cookies and chocolate! I eat my portable s’mores with a fork, it is the easiest/cleanest way to enjoy them!

These are the perfect bonfire/summer night snack!

XOXO,Chels

What is your favorite candy bar? One of my absolute favs is Snickers! The best way to watch a movie is with a bucket of popcorn, so at your next movie marathon with your gal pals, make them Snickers popcorn!

Ingredients

  • 8 quarts of popped cornSnickers-Caramel-Popcorn
  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 2 cups of packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup of light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of salted peanuts
  • 30 “fun size” Snickers bars, chopped
  • 3 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Over medium heat, boil the butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup for 5 minutes. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the baking soda. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir it so that it covers all of the corn. Spread some wax paper onto the counter and then pour the covered corn onto the wax paper. Sprinkle the peanuts on top and then transfer it into a roasting pan and bake for 1 hour, stirring it every 15 minutes. When you remove it from the oven, stir in the chopped Snickers and put it back in the oven for about 3 minutes. Remove the popcorn from the pan and then spread it onto the wax paper to cool. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of it, and then store it in a container until you and your friends are ready to devour it!

XOXO, Chels
