Memorial Day Munchies

  If you're looking for a super quick snack to make for the holiday weekend, this could easily be the easiest snack out there -  a sweet + salty mix with a festive flair! ;) 


You can really add just about anything that would taste good with chocolate (so, really pretty much anything), but here's what I included in ours:


Just lay out all of your ingredients on a piece of wax paper, heat up your melting chocolate as instructed on the package and use a fork to dump drizzle it on.  Add sprinkles if you want while the chocolate is still melty! This was my first time using those melting chocolates and they were super easy to melt in the microwave and hardened up pretty quickly.   I put this together during nap time but think it's an easy enough thing to make with a tiny helper on your hands.  You can totally mix up the ingredients a bit for different holidays too!  Kind of like when Tyler helped me pick out all the "fall colored" m&ms from the bag for a Halloween snack mix. ;)


One of the things I love about this is you can easily make as much or little as you'd like at a time. It's also nice that there really isn't any measuring needed.  PLUS, at least some of the ingredients aren't ridiculously bad for you, right??  

I'm planning to break out the star-shaped cookie cutters for a little star spangled sangria for myself and maybe some star-shaped everything that they'll cut through for Ellie.  Do you have any favorite festive foods for Memorial Day weekend?  Anything red, white + blue will do! :)

Enjoy and have a happy + safe holiday weekend!
