Cute Food For Kids posted a candy necklace tutorial yesterday and I just had to try it! So for snack today D has her candy necklace, but I did put it in with some Cracklin Oat Bran cereal to ease some of my guilt for sending her to school with candy. LOL

We had a great Easter here. It was a beautiful day. We enjoyed every minute of it!
We decided to put a spin on the Push Pop Cupcake. We made push pop triffles.

Friday was crazy hectic in the morning...like most mornings so I didn't get any pics of M's lunch or D's snack. It was a beautiful day out and we spent the day outside which is why I didn't get to posting the lunch until today!

I used a different recipe, this one has rice krispies in it. D really seems to like it.
Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola Bars II
1/4 C butter
1/4 C coconut oil
1/3 C sugar
1/3 C agave syrup
1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp coconut extract
2 C Rice Krispie cereal
2 C rolled oats
1 C shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 C mini chocolate chips
In a small sauce pan melt butter and coconut oil together. Add sugar, agave syrup, flour and extract. Stir till smooth, set aside to cool. In a large bowl, mix rice cereal, oats, coconut and chocolate chips. When butter mixture has cooled add it to the cereal mixture, stir to coat evenly. Then pour into a greased 13 x 9 in pan. Press with wet hands or waxed paper into one even layer. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree
1 box instant vanilla pudding (I use sugar free so it is the 1 oz box)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Beat the cream cheese and pumpkin puree together until smooth, add the pudding mix and spice and beat till thickened. Chill. I serve it with cracker sticks, pretzel sticks, graham crackers, nilla wafers...whatever you're in the mood for....it sort of tastes like pumpkin cheesecake. Very, very yummy!!
