For the end of summer days, a polka dot spree –
Marshmallow pops, here, take two or three,
egg-n-cuke wiches – oh, what a treat,
berrylicious cupcakes, so moist and sweet,
crispy, crunchy, potato-a-gooey balls of cheese
and cutesy salad-on-skewers, all made to please!
Glorious ol’ summer, as endless as it has seemed, is coming to an end, sadly, and it’s time to acquire those supplies, revamp those wardrobes and send the little troopers out and into the able hands of their new grade teachers. To celebrate the end of summer days, we’re hosting a cute and comely indoor spree that calls for little drudgery and more revelry than you can possibly imagine. In our latest Funnibbles package, we show you how to work your creativity and serve up a feast for the cute little sun-warmed squads, lovers of both pinstripes and polka dots..
What could be better than marshmallows? Marshmallow pops! Put popsicle sticks through jumbo marshmallows and dip them in nuked candy melts, throw on some sprinkles and top each with a mini-marshmallow cap. When the mob attacks, you’ll realize.. no one can eat just one!
If you need a break from grilled cheese sandwiches, even though they could be a hot favorite during the colder months, with the cheese all warm and gooey in between layers of toasty bread, take a kink and put out something simple and neat for this end-of-summer shindig. Cut up some cukes, top with sliced boiled eggs, shake up some salt-and-pepper, dot with ketchup and sit back with folded arms as they disappear before you can yelp “Yippee!”
Whisk up some delicious strawberry cupcake batter with fresh, pureed strawberries, bake them in cute polka-dotty liners, and jazz up your table. Go with a mountain of these Berrylicious Cupcakes stacked on a plate, or daintily frosted with our buttercream frosting, then sprinkled with pink sugar dots and mounted on a stand for extra elegance.
Now that you’ve done away with the warm and gooey cheese in between layers of toasty bread, stuff it in a crunchy casing instead, mashed with potatoes and hints of spices and you’ll have a fan following for the Fall, Winter, Spring..until next Summer rolls in and balls up in your face again. Our Cheese Balls are sure to be a hit, if you can resist chomping your way through a plateful before putting them out on the table, that is.
Little hands love to gobble up anything that’s on a stick and doesn’t look too complicated. Even salads in bowls or vegetables with a mushy dip can seem a trifle too heavy sometimes for the darling eager beavers. You don’t have to slave all day in the kitchen to throw an inviting party for them. A little goes a long way, and in this case, the grape tomatoes in all their minikin glory are the shooting stars. Paired with balls of herbed Swiss cheese, they’ll win the little hearts right away.
And..our Polka-dot Spree is off to do a merry jig at –
