Treats for others

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July.  It was a bummer it was on a Monday which means yes you get Monday off but have to work Tuesday.  Let’s just say not a lot of sleep when your neighbors are trying to blow up the town.  Very little sleep for this mama so a quick post of yummies Smile.

My amazing friend Nichol posted a link with the top 10 popsicles (click her name to go to the post).  These Rainbow Pudding Pops were so easy to do and very cool for the kids!  I did it the easy way and instead of separating into different bowls I just did 6 puddings and did one color per bowl then poured cleaned the bowl and made the next color.  I’m all about making it easy Smile.  NOW next year I think I’ll do red, white and blue for the 4th of July.  I know isn’t that a cool idea.  Yup those ideas always come to me too late … lol.  Now let’s hope I remember next year!


Rainbow Pudding Pops!

<p>I love making popsicles for the boys and this was a fun and easy one. I picked up all the ingredients for under $4 and made about 15 pops.</p>

See Rainbow Pudding Pops! on Key Ingredient.

For the different holidays I like to make a special treat for my boss and my secret sister at church.  I made this Marshmallow Muffin Mix in a Jar for both of them.  I found these marshmallows colored for the 4th and just had to find a recipe to make Smile.

<p>Another gift jar that is so easy to put together. I used the new marshmallow&#8217;s that were red/white/blue in shapes of stars for the 4th of July.</p>

And I made a 2nd jar to send off to my boss.  These Cowboy Cookie Mix in a jar I think was a classic yummy cookie!  I made the label with a stack of oatmeal cookies translucent behind the recipe.

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope your day goes well.  All I know is I’m going to be drinking a lot of coffee!  BAD day to be out of K-cups for my coffee maker!  Guess I’ll be using the French press today!

  2. I made your pops this weekend, I did red white and blue. Khilee loved them, but Caleb wasn't a fan but only because I used banana pudding. I also made the Fancy Lime Jello Shots from your birthday post. They were a huge hit!!! The melon baller did not work so well like we discussed, but I bet a grapefruit spoon would make it less frustrating! Love your ideas, thanks Lex!

  3. I love those jars! what a thoughtful gift...and yummy too!
    Blessings, Joanne
