FUDGE BROWNIES CHALKBOARDS
Chalkboards are a staple in any classroom and these Fudge Brownies Chalkboards are the perfect addition to studying. Unwrap three to four Fudge Brownies and get ready to write! You don’t have to have perfect handwriting, just be creative with your letters, numbers and ideas! Write a few school-related items like a math problem or spelling word with the white cookie icing, then add the pretzels at the bottom! Make sure to top it off with a small white mint for the chalk.SNACK FINDER
POWDERED MINI DONUTS APPLES
No school year is complete without an apple for the teacher! Make these fun, poppable treats for your child or your child’s teacher to show your appreciation for them. Using a few Mini Powdered Donuts, add the red cookie icing across the top, spreading a generous amount to cover. Be careful, though, it might get a little messy! Then break a pretzel stick in half, add it to the top of the donut and don’t forget your leaf! Place them in the freezer until the cookie icing is hardened or enjoy immediately!
BANANA TWINS RULERSLet’s rule out any downtime with our Banana Twins Rulers! These are super simple to make and oh so delicious to eat! Use the black cookie icing and a toothpick to create small lines as shown in the picture. Don’t worry, making it to scale is not required for this fun treat. Just be creative and draw as many or as few lines as you like. Plus, you can get even more creative and add in numbers too!SNACK FINDER
FANCY CAKES NOTEBOOKSUndoubtedly some of the cutest snacks we have made, these treats are an “A”-plus addition to your after-school routine! Unwrap four to five Fancy Cakes and create two straight lines with the blue cookie icing to create lined paper. Then take the red cookie icing and draw one straight line for the ruled side of the paper. Using the black cookie icing, make three dots on the side of the cake as shown in the photo. Easy peasy! Be sure to place them in the fridge so the cookie icing does not melt before all your other yummy treats are created.SNACK FINDER
