5 Warm-You-Up Snacks For After Your Next Snowball Fight
When the weather is snowy and cold outside putting on a pair of mittens and getting to play can be irresistible for kids. Usually though, after about as much time as it took to get into their snowsuit, kids are ready to head inside, warm up and grab a snack. Check out the yummy, warm-you-up snacks below that will keep you and your little one toasty after a long (or short) day of play in the cold.
These warm, gooey snacks are the perfect thing to warm you up as you fill your belly. With several yummy flavors, all you’ll have to do is pop them in the oven before a quick jaunt outside and you’ll have something yummy to come back to.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a baker, you can whip up some warm, delicious homemade bread with less effort than you think. Pop your bread in the oven before you go out to play and, when you return, take it out and let your kiddos layer it with peanut butter, honey, butter, or apple butter. This warm treat won’t last long so don’t hesitate to whip up a double batch.
There no wrong way to make, or enjoy, hot cocoa. Whether you prefer to make cocoa using milk or water, your kiddos will have fond memories of warming their hands around a mug of something delicious after a long, cold day of playing outside.
Whether you prefer to make cookies from scratch or to break and bake, cookies are usually quick to bake and even quicker to be devoured. If you prepare your cookies to bake before you go out to play, and then pop them in the oven as soon as you get back inside, you should have something to enjoy before their snowsuits are hung in front of the fire.
Tabletop S’mores are as fun to make as they are to eat. Using a tabletop s’more maker you can enjoy this treat with your kiddos more frequently than you could if you could only make them over a campfire!
