Apple Themed Back to School Snack Ideas

We love our themed posts, especially for back to school because they’re reminiscent of our younger days (check out our previous post on Pencil Themed Back to School Snack Ideas)! One theme we couldn’t wait to blog about for BTS is apples.  It used to be tradition to bring an apple on the first day of school for the teacher. That soon evolved to other back to school gifts, but apples always made an appearance in the classroom.

In today’s post, we’re going to bring back the BTS apple idea, but with a twist! Instead of real apples, we’re going to share some fun apple themed food ideas for back to school, perfect for students and teachers!

Pencil Themed Back to School Snack Ideas

No Bake Creepy Crawly (But Delicious) Dirt Cake

One time at a spring themed party, we were surprised at what was on the dessert table. There were little  cups of dirt, that people were eating! Turns out, it wasn’t dirt, but a yummy dessert called dirt cake. It’s made to look like a potted plant in the spring!

They’re actually quite easy to make, and not to mention delicious! We’re going to share with you a list of supplies to make your own at home! Serve them at your next spring party to entertain the guests!

Ingredients/Supplies – to make ~6 servings

  • 8 oz of Oreos or chocolate sandwich cookies (1/2 a pack)
  • 2 packs of vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 1/4 cups of milk
  • 8 oz of Cool Whip
  • 6 oz of cream cheese
  • 3 tbs of room temp butter
  • gummy worms

Combine the cream cheese together with the butter. In another bowl, mix the vanilla pudding mix and milk together. Fold in the Cool Whip and the cream cheese mixture. Next, crumble the cookies (either crush by hand, blender, or a food processor) until it looks like dirt.

In a cup, put alternating layers of cookie crumbles and cream cheese mix, starting and ending with a cookie layer. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

You can substitute the vanilla pudding with chocolate pudding to make this extra chocolatey, or top it off with a gummy worm to make it more creepy crawly!

This quick and easy dessert is great to serve at your next springtime party. It’s also fun to make with kids! Let us know if you’ve had dirt cake before in the comments below!

Beautiful Spring Flower Cupcakes

We all know that spring is flowers galore, and that’s not just limited to the plants outside. We see touches of floral in furniture, our clothing, and now even in food!

One beautiful way to portray flowers in food is through cupcakes. The art of cupcake decorating has evolved tremendously the past few years, and have gotten so elaborate. They can even make icing and fondant look like real flowers! Here are some of our favorite floral cupcake finds we came across from some talented bakers and decorators!

Cozy Spring Picnic Inspirations

There’s a little bit more than a month left of spring (summer starts here in the northern hemisphere on Friday, June 21),  and while the weather is still breezy outside, we should enjoy the great outdoors as much as possible.

When I was young,  my family would always have springtime picnics by the lake. All we’d take with us is a picnic basket full of sandwiches and juice, and a few lawn chairs. Those were the days!

Let’s all channel back to our childhood and have a picnic this spring! Here are some of our favorite spring picnic inspiration pictures to get you going.
