Lucky Charms Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of Lucky Charms Cereal
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • ice cream

Directions:

  1. Start by spraying a baking sheet with nonstick baking spray.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the marshmallows and butter and put in the microwave for 2 minutes, stopping to stir in at each minute interval.
  3. Once the marshmallows are completely melted and combined with butter, mix in the lucky charms and stir well so that all the cereal pieces are evenly coated with marshmallow.
  4. Pour the cereal-marshmallow mixture onto the baking sheet and press down with a rubber spatula, flattening as you go.
  5. Allow to cool and then cut into squares to make your sandwiches. You can also use cookie cutters as well. I love this pack of fun cookie cutters on Amazon for all holidays!
  6. When you are ready to serve, smear 1 scoop of ice cream on one of the Lucky charm bars, sandwiching in between.

Enjoy!!!

Reuben Salad

Reuben Salad
This post contains affiliate links

This Reuben Salad has all the classic flavors of the traditional sandwich minus the carbs and grease that you would normally get from the pub or diner. It’s super easy to prep for lunch or a light dinner and the kids ate it too! This is a great option if you’re following low carb or keto. Scroll down for my recipe for my Reuben Salad below.

Reuben Salad

Ingredients:

  • Rye bread torn into chunks
  • 1-2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1-2 heads of romaine, torn
  • 1/2 lb of deli corned beef sliced into strips.
  • 1/2 lb of deli swiss cheese sliced into strips.
  • 1 cup of sauerkraut or cole slaw (I do cole slaw since I don’t like sauerkraut)
  • Russian dressing

Directions:

  1. First make your rye bread croutons. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place your rye bread chunks on the baking sheet and toss with melted butter. Put in the oven until golden brown.
  2. While the croutons are baking, prepare your salad. I have found that if you’re serving a group of people, you can make a board and place each ingredient in separate bowls so that people can make their own individual salads. Or just combine all ingredients in one large bowl and toss.
  3. Top with croutons right before serving.

If you’re looking for great salad bowls these are my favorite! They’re awesome for pasta too!

Red Velvet Waffles

OH MY GOSHHH, I have had such a red velvet craving! It’s one of my favorite desserts. And with Valentine’s Day approaching, I was in the mood to bake something red velvet inspired. These red velvet waffles are so indulgent and are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or anytime you just want to spoil yourself or someone you love. The best part, they are made with red velvet cake mix and topped with a homemade cream cheese whipped topping you can prepare ahead of time.

If you want to give your partner a hint, email them this recipe or print it out and put it on their pillow as a little nudge and maybe perhaps you will get breakfast in bed for Valentine’s Day 😉

Scroll down for my recipe.

If you don’t have a heart shaped waffle iron, you can also try using a heart shaped cookie cutter and cutting out heart shaped waffles that way too!

Our family is popcorn obsessed!!! The boys love to add all different toppings and trying different flavor combinations. I added some melted white chocolate, conversation candy hearts and sprinkles to give it a Valentine’s flair. This Valentine’s Popcorn would also be really cute wrapped in little gift baggies and given as Valentine’s or for a Valentine’s party.
