Family Fun Magazine Kid Friendly Spring Recipes

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Looking for some cute recipes to do with your kids this Spring? FamilyFun magazine has three great recipes to welcome springtime and the holidays that come along with it. Below you’ll find a cute “lambwich,” as well as two St. Patrick’s Day themed treats. Grab your kids and head to the kitchen for some fun!

Little Lambwich

Ingredients
Sliced cheese
Mini bagels
Mustard
Ham slice
Black olives
Shredded cheese

Directions
Two types of cheese give this savory, open-faced sandwich its sweet-as-can-be look. Trim a piece of sliced cheese to fit atop one half of a mini bagel. Cut a round muzzle and a pair of half-circle ears from more sliced cheese, then attach them with mustard or mayonnaise. Add a nose cut from a ham slice, plus a mouth and a pair of eyes trimmed from black olives. Finish with a sprinkle of shredded cheese between the ears. 

Leprechaun Hats

Ingredients
English cucumber
Sliced cheese
Hummus

Directions
Celebrate Saint Pat’s with a crunchy cucumber treat. Cut 1-inch sections of an English cucumber. Halve them lengthwise and lay the pieces flat on a plate, as shown. Trim a cucumber brim for each hat and set it in place. Finish with a sliced cheese band and buckle, attached with dots of hummus or dip.

Leprechaun Doughnuts

Ingredients
Chocolate sprinkle:
O-shaped cereal
Dark or white chocolate
Colored sprinkles

Cinnamon sugar:
O-shaped cereal
Sugar
Cinnamon sugar

Directions
Lure wee visitors this Saint Patrick’s Day with O-shaped cereal disguised as tiny doughnuts. Prepare each variety following the steps at right and let dry on waxed paper. Add to the fun by placing them in a miniature box (get our template at familyfunmag.com/printables).

Chocolate sprinkle:
Dip the tops of O-shaped cereal into melted dark or white chocolate (the tines of a fork work well for this) and cover with sprinkles.

Cinnamon sugar:
Over medium-high heat, dissolve ½ cup sugar in ½ cup water. Let it cool. Dip the O’s, a few at a time, in the syrup, then toss them in a small bowl of cinnamon sugar.

Just as I was thinking how hungry I am getting since not sleeping well and being up for 6 hours now, I see this. Oh how I want a donut and these recipes are wonderful
