So now that we’ve got some great eats going for the grownups how about getting the kids fed? After all, when they are nibbling away we have more time to play!

Fluffernutters with a Twist!

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 Original Flatout (or when available the NEW French Toast Flatout, nom nom!)
  • 2 small bananas
  • 1 cup Marshmallow Creme
  • ½ cup Peanut butter
  • ¼ cup Nutella

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the Flatout with a medium-sized circular cookie cutter. Brush a foil-lined baking sheet with olive oil or or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Bake 4-6 minutes until crisp and golden. Remove to parchment paper for cooling.

Slice bananas into 1/4-inch disks. Using two teaspoons heap a generous (because really, it’s marshmallow folks) spoon full of marshmallow creme onto your Flatout. Heat your peanut butter on medium in the microwave at 15 second intervals until it’s smooth and easy to work with. Top the marshmallow with a drizzle or dollop (to taste) of peanut butter. Crown it with your banana.

Now for the big finish, using the same technique you did with the peanut butter, heat the Nutella. Drizzle – or in my case drown – the assembled Fluffernutter in chocolate-hazelnut goodness.

The kids will love this. I can attest to the fact that it’s a grownup pleaser too!

ME-izza Party

Kids love to play with their food, most of them are pizza aficionados as well. This trick gets their bellies fed, sparks their creativity and evokes giggles to boot.

Assemble a tray laden with pizza topping favorites like:

  • Pepperoni
  • Mini Meatballs (sliced in half)
  • Olives
  • Ham
  • Sweet pepper slices
  • Shredded cheese
  • BabyBel (fun for them to unwrap and with the help of an adult slice into disks)

Add to that a little pizza sauce and enough Kidz Original for each child at your party. Allow them to “paint” the pizza with sauce -s uggest pastry brushes – and create their own ME-izza. Pop them in the oven on 350 for 3-6 minutes until the cheese is bubbly. Food and party fun taken care of all in one!

This time of year giving of our time and selves is a big part of the season. Why not consider getting the children in your life to start sharing. Try asking your guests to bring new mittens (you can find these as low as a dollar or two in many stores) to the party. Contact your local family shelter and arrange to donate the mittens to families in need. This little thing can go a long way to warming hands and hearts this holiday season.

Bon appetit!
