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! This recipe will be a hit when I’m in college and don’t have an oven at my disposal!

Are you looking for something to make for your Super Bowl party Sunday? Or, are you just looking for a tasty treat to warm your tummy in this cold weather? Then this crock pot s’mores cake is just what you need!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mixcps2-900x675
  • 1 ½ cup of mini marshmallows
  • 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips
  • 6 graham crackers

The first thing you need to do is make the cake mix according to the directions on the box. Spray the bottom of your crock pot with non-stick spray or add some foil to the bottom. Add half of the cake batter to the crock pot and then add 1 cup of marshmallows and 1 cup of chocolate chips. Layer the graham crackers on the top. Break those bad boys up to make them into a nice layer. Save one cracker for later. Pour the rest of the batter on top of the graham layer. Cook this mixture on low for 1 ½- 2 hours. If it starts to burn around the edges, add some crackers to prevent burning. Add the rest of the marshmallows and chocolate chips and then top it off with the crumbles of the remaining graham cracker. Cook it for another 30 minutes and then serve it with ice cream!…Or just eat it by itself!

Totes delish! Get the delicious taste of s’mores without having to start up a fire!

XOXO, Chels

Milk and Oreos. What a match made in heaven. Even better? Cookies and cream ice cream. Even BETTER? Cookies and cream popsicles! If you are like me and you live in a place where summers are totally squelching, you are in constant need of a cool-down treat. I have just the thing to cool your jets!photo-2 copy

Ingredients:

–       4 oz fat free cream cheese, softened

–       4 oz fat free plain Greek Yogurt

–       ¼ cup fat free milk

–       2 tbsp powdered sugar

–       6 Oreos, crushed

Combine the cream cheese, yogurt, powdered sugar, and milk together in a bowl until the mixture is creamy and smooth. Once your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, stir in the crushed Oreos. An (and fun) way to crush the Oreos is to grab a gallon sized Ziploc baggy, toss the cookies inside, seal it nice and tight, and then take a wooden spoon to the bag. Crush those cookies, and crush ‘em good! Whack them with the spoon to your heart’s intent. This is also a good way to let off some steam, I might add. So, anyway, after you have added the crushed cookies to the mixture pour it into popsicle molds. Place the molds in the freezer, and boom you’re done!

I am so excited to try this quick and easy (and frosty) version my favorite midnight snack, Oreos and milk!

XOXO, Chels

Who doesn’t love a banana split? I sure do, but I don’t love the calories that come with it. What if I told you that there was a way to get all of the great taste to a banana split, but with only a fraction of the calories? I introduce to you, banana split bites!

Ingredients:chelsea crockett

–       24 pieces of pineapple

–       2 bananas sliced into 24 slices

–       1 cup of dark chocolate chips

–       2 tsp coconut oil

–       12 strawberries sliced in half

Grab a cookie sheet and layer the pineapple slices on it. Then layer the bananas on top of the pineapple, then the strawberries. Stick a tooth pick through the layers of fruit and then stick them in the freezer for a few minutes. While they are in the freezer, melt your chocolate chips with your coconut oil on the stove. Dip your fruit into the chocolate and lay them on top of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Stick them in the freezer to cool the chocolate.

Now go enjoy your banana split bites!!

XOXO, Chels

Skinny Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

When I heard the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino was soon coming back to Starbucks, I did a little happy dance. Okay a big happy dance. The return of the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino means the return of fall, and I am so ready for that. The only thing that put a stop to my happy dancing was when I saw how many calories were in one of those puppies. The small has 300 calories, the medium as 460 and a large has 630 calories. Ouch. Not to mention the drinks cost as much as a small house. Okay maybe not that much, but still… Anyway, I found a cheaper, healthier wa
y to get my Pumpkin Frappuccino fix right at home. Here is how!

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups cold coffee, cooled in the refrigerator overnightFrapp
  • 1 and 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a small bowl, whisk the milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together until combined.  Pour into ice cube tray and freeze. Once coffee is cold and pumpkin ice cubes are frozen, add the cubes to your blender and blend on high until smooth and icy. If your cubes aren’t blending well, add milk. Take a quick taste test and add more syrup or spices as needed. Top this yummy treat with whipped cream to finish the job!

I don’t know about you, but I am so excited to try this cheaper, healthier Starbucks alternative! Do you think this sounds totally delicious? Comment below!

XOXO, Chels

Slurpees are such a fun summer treat. They are tangy frosty goodness! Instead of grabbing one at the gas station when you are out and about, how about making your own! This is a fun diy you can do with your friends or just for you!chelsea crockett

  1. Take a 2 liter bottle of soda and shake shake shake it up! Shake it for about 15 seconds to increase the pressure in the bottle.
  2. Place the bottle in the freezer for 3 and a half to 4 hours. You want the soda to get as cold as possible, but NOT freeze. Check your soda regularly between 3 ½ and 4 hours to make sure it is not freezing.
  3. Remove your soda from the freezer. In one movement, unscrew the bottle cap just enough to release some of the pressure, quickly tighten it back up, and turn the bottle upside down. Return it to the upright position and you should magically see slushie ice crystals begin to form immediately. Science!!

Who knew science could be frosty and delicious!? Try this sweet trick out and enjoy a yummy homemade slurpee this summer!

XOXO Chels

Looking for a yummy treat that is easy to pop in your mouth on the go? Try these yummy yogurt drops. They are super easy to make and they are great for you! Here is how you make them:

Get a cup of your all time favorite yogurt. I love strawberry Greek yogurt! Spoon some in a plastic Ziploc bag. Cut one of the bottom corners of the bag so that you can squeeze yogurt out of it. Take out a large, flat cookie sheet and start placing penny-IMG_6050-300x224sized drops of yogurt onto the cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet into the freezer for about an hour. Once the drops have frozen, you can take them out of the freezer, scrape them off the cookie sheet, and scoop them into a storage bowl! Once you have gobbled up your fair share, store them in the freezer!

 

Yum yum!

How incredibly refreshing does blueberry mint lemonade sound? I say it sounds crazy good. To me, there is nothing more refreshing than a tall glass of lemonade. Here is the recipe for this dapper drink!chelsea crockett blueberry lemonade

Ingredients:

–          1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

–          ¾ cup superfine sugar

–          4 cups water

–          1 cup fresh blueberries

–          1/3 cup fresh mint

Juice your lemons into a large pitcher. Add your sugar and water, and then stir to dissolve. Add the blueberries and mint, then let the mixture sit in the refrigerator overnight before you serve. The longer you let the mixture stand, the more the flavors will mingle. I personally have a pitcher of this stuff sitting in my fridge right now! You can bet your bottom dollar it will all be gone in a jiff!

Enjoy!

Diy Watermelon Sorbet

It’s summer vacation! Just saying it makes me so happy J. I don’t know about you, but where I live it gets reaaally hot and humid during the summer. I saw this recipe the other day and decided to try it, and I was instantly in love! Today I am going to teach you how to make a super cool, refreshing, and healthy treat for those days when you can’t seem to cool down!

exps32576_CW952730D46

What is this treat I am describing? Watermelon sorbet of course! This is how you make it:

 You will need:

                        3 cups of watermelon
                        ¼ cup lemon or lime juice  

                        ½ cup water

                        ¼ cup sugar

                        A blender

 

What you do:

A couple hours (I recommend 3 or 4) before you plan to make the sorbet, cut up your watermelon into chunks. Put them in a large Ziploc bag and then put the bag in your freezer. Try and lay the bag flat and spread the watermelon evenly so they freeze faster. Next, after your watermelon has been freezing for 3 or 4 hours, boil the water, sugar, and lemon or lime juice until the sugar has dissolved. Then let this mixture cool to room temperature. Next, put your frozen watermelon and water mixture into your blender and blend it up! Make sure you blend it until it is a smooth consistency and there are no chunks. After that, pour your mixture into the bowl or container you will be serving or storing it in. Put this container in the freezer for another 2 hours, just to make sure your mixture is nice and firm before you serve it. Viola! Delicious, healthy relief from the summer heat. You can eat this sweet treat without feeling guilty because it has barely any sugar and it is all fruit!

     Just a quick tip for serving: if you are having a hard time scooping the sorbet, run your         spoon under warm water before scooping it out.
