Here is how the Halloween candy went out:
2 single serving no-added sugar applesauce cups
1 fun size pack of Skittles
2 small shakes of the rainbow sprinkles
I split the Skittles pack between the two--each child got 8 skittles and gave each a little shake of the rainbow sprinkles. Voila! Super special applesauce for dessert. Everyone wins!
Anyhoo, if you want to be the coolest mom tonight, throw some sprinkles on fruit and call it a treat!
Here are a few of my other special desserts:
Toast with peanut butter and use chocolate chips to make a happy face
Any kind of canned fruit with a squirt of whipped cream
Peel a banana and stick little surprises in it--pretzel sticks, candy bits, chocolate chips
Peel a banana and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Top with a squirt of whipped cream and a cherry--like a sundae without the ice cream.
Yogurt with graham cracker squares stuck in the top for dipping/scooping
Yogurt with a shake of sprinkles
Yogurt "milkshake." I have made these for my kids since they were babies. This is especially good if you need to get yogurt in them for medical reasons (aka, too many antibiotics :) ) Fill a lidded cup halfway with yogurt. Make sure it doesn't have fruit chunks in it. It should be smooth. Fill remainder of the cup with milk. Place the lid on top and shake vigorously until combined. I'm not sure that my kids yet know that milkshakes are actually made with ice cream.
Get creative. My kids will pretty much eat anything if I put a little shake of sprinkles (or anything I call sprinkles. . . hello Parmesan cheese! or Sea salt!) on top. One shake goes a long way so it doesn't take much.
