Lucky Charms they are one of my favorite cereals from childhood. Also as an adult I sometimes like to indulge in my childhood favorites. These little lucky charms marshmallow pops are such a tasty treat. It’s tiny marshmallows on top of marshmallows, what?! You get a fun crunch to go with the soft marshmallows. I used green candy melts to give it a bit of St. Patrick’s Day fun. They would also look cute with just white so the Lucky Charms pop, rainbow color candy melts, or blue. These are fun to make with kids because they can help and snack along the way! I have a lot of Lucky Charms fun planned for the week! Come back for more ideas and free printables for Lucky Charm week. These Lucky Charm marshmallow pops are magically delicious!

The super bowl is right around the corner! That means time to bring out all the cute football party desserts and food. This easy football field cupcake cake is perfect for a football party. I made a couple mini cupcake cakes but you can do one lager one too! It’s the same process you would just use a whole batch of cupcakes for a larger football field cupcake cake. Mini ones are fun and you can spread them out at a party or on a dessert table. I love Super Bowl parties mainly for all of the food that people make. I can make little appetizers but usually I am on the dessert making team! These cupcakes are really easy to make and I put little M&Ms as players on the field! I thought that was a cute touch. I only wrote out a few of the field numbers because there wasn’t space for more, plus it’s easier that way. I will also share my secret for filling in the gaps of cupcakes when making a cupcake cake!
I’m a little late getting in to the hole Snapchat thing. That’s usually the case with me and anything technology related. Partly because I’m in my early 30’s and in bed at 9 every night. I don’t always know what the cools kids are doing. Once I found out that Snapchat has all of these fun filters I realized how fun it can be. I still don’t know how to do everything with it but my daughter and I love the filters! There don’t seem to be a lot of Snap Chat party ideas out there yet but I am sure it will be a big trend soon. These Snapchat Filter Rice Krispie Treats are incredibly easy to make for guests at a party. I made Rice Krispie Treats covered them up with some Fruit Roll Ups and that’s all you have to do. You can even buy already packaged Rice Krispie Treats.
In our house there is a lot of pink! It’s just me and my daughter, which means girl time all the time. Ok she’s not just into the girl stuff she also is obsessed with Star Wars. Dresses, pink, and Star Wars, they go together in our house. We also love princesses and dress up. Really pink candy can be used for anything girl. For kids and adults, I know a few adults that still love their pink princesses! We made this simple pink princess candy bark that anyone can make. It was half me and half my daughter and she is five. You may be able to tell what parts are her because of the excessive amount of sprinkles but it all looks so pretty. There just aren’t enough pink desserts out there. We had to change that.
Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. In the summer it is number one on my list! This is the time of year to indulge in sweet treats. Swimsuit season is halfway over go crazy ;)! These are perfect little bites to serve for a group or just to make with kids. You can eat just one and not feel too bad because it is smaller than a normal ice cream sandwich. I loved how the Oreo ice cream sandwiches turned out and will definitely be making them again. They were really easy to make but they did take longer to make than to eat. That is my problem with desserts they seem to just disappear.
For summer I love having desserts with fruit in them. I also like a simple dessert. These white chocolate covered fruit kabobs with rainbow sprinkles are perfect for a simple refreshing dessert! I chose rainbow colored fruits to give a pop of color. I also didn’t put all the kinds of fruit on one kabob because some people like different fruits. You could do a bunch of combinations of fruit too to give variety. I like them separated and how they look all lined up by color. I also toyed around with the idea of colorful candy melts for the chocolate drizzle but decided white chocolate with colorful sprinkles would look good. If you have a theme and a certain color you want to use you can add a colorful chocolate drizzle! I was thinking of orange, pink or another bright color. I also think colorful sprinkles are a nice touch for parties!
I love spring time, in Arizona we get a short spring but I love it while it lasts. Seeing flowers bloom inspired me to make some cute flower desserts. I’m don’t have a lot of time for actual baking right now so easy no bake flower desserts were the way to go. How cute are these flower pudding and pops! The flowers are made with salt water taffy and you really can’t go wrong with salt water taffy.
What you need to make the pudding cups:
salt water taffy in bright colors
chocolate pudding cups
My daughter Keira has really been getting excited for Easter this week. Yesterday she was wearing bunny ears around the entire day. They kept falling in her face but she insisted on keep them on. She also picked out a cute dress for Easter. It has multicolored jelly beans all over it, so cute! She has a better fashion sense than I do so I usually let her pick out what she wants to wear. Both of us love bright colors and spring is the perfect time for that. To get ready for Easter I’ve been testing out some fun and easy treats. We made bunny ear chocolate spoons and marshmallow pop bunny noses. This was so easy to put together. I like anything I can prepare with Keira so I don’t have to stay up at night getting things ready.
These marshmallow pops and heart candy pops taste great! They are super easy to make and look adorable. I am all about the bright fun colors this Valentine’s Day! I think I went a little overboard with the candy hearts I bought so I am using them in any ways I can. No actual baking involved here so anyone could make these.
For the heart pops you need candy melts any color you want or white chocolate, conversation hearts or heart sprinkles, lollipop sticks and a candy making bottle.
