ids know
that one of
the best
things about being
back in school is
the afternoon
snack. When they
burst through the
front door hungry
somethin' awful, how
about somethin' new like this
quick peanut butter waffle? The recipe irons out the
usual waffle-batter mess by using flattened dinner
roll dough that's all ready to go. Then simply slather
with PB&J, a unanimous choice, and kids enjoy an
old-fashioned classic in a brand new way. (All you
have to do is put the waffle iron away!)
If you really want to make after school snacking a fun
activity, let kids create their own fantastical snacks as
easy as 1,2,3 with 60 second frozen cinnamon roll
dough. Start by barking up the right tree and engage
your handy microwave instead of the oven. And, with
a little shaping, sugar sprinkling and fruit leather, in
seconds you have a gooey, delectable doggy-shaped
cinnamon roll. This golden baked “roll”y-poly puppy
will be eager to please – and he can’t eat the
homework. Don’t be surprised if your kids lick the
puppy’s face, for a change.
The first days of a new school year are tough on a
youngster. Remember the butterflies? Calm the
nervousness with a surprise. Let
them tell you all about their day
while they design, bake (they’ll be
fluttering about the oven door
waiting for it to emerge) and eat
their own homemade butterflies.
And, you’ll feel the l-o-v-e after
school when the little ones find
their names spelled out in
personalized snack sticks for dipping
and dunking. You won’t have to beg
them to practice writing when they
can use dough instead of a pencil.
Whether you use the waffle iron,
microwave or oven, ready-to-go frozen dough can
make the back to school transition a yummy one.
