Boy Scout Dessert – The Ultimate Sweet Treat, Trail Mix With Candy

All Boy Scouts like sweet treats. Most of us have a favorite. Mine is skittles.

But, mom’s won’t let you pork on skittles all the time, so I had to come up with something mom would okay. Trail Mix anybody?

When I mix it up I always pick my own amounts, heavy on the Skittles, please.

The ingredients are the best.

Put white yogurt raisins, salted peanuts, real raisins or dried cranberries, wheat chex cereal, sesame sticks (from the cracker aisle at the grocery store), sunflower seeds (without the shells), a box of teddy grahams, dried banana chips or apple chips, and Skittles in a big bowl and stir them all up. Dish it up a cup at a time in those nifty plastic Ziploc bags your mom tells you not to waste. You’ve got a carry along with you snack that goes anywhere. Mom will approve of this snack almost anytime.

I like these because I can pack several bags of it in my backpack and have a sealed bag of treats anytime I want them. If I choke the air all out of the Ziploc bag (ask your mom to show you how), I can put a lot of bags in the backpack and they don’t get all smooshed up.

Boy Scouts like these snack packs because they can share them on road trips. Boy Scout leaders like these snack packs because the boys can make them by themselves. There’s a lot of ingredients so the whole pack can bring something. They have enough for everybody to take a bag home. There’s still plenty to take on a Road trip.

Don’t tell your mom how much you like this stuff, she’ll figure out it’s not all healthy food and add something like spinach.

Sweet Treats For Diabetics

Choosing recipes can be difficult when you are a diabetic. We have compiled a few of our favorite sweet treat recipes for people with Diabetes. Hopefully you will see one that you can enjoy.

Mini Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce:

To create this recipe, you will need a cup of non-fat milk, a single egg-white, one teaspoon of vanilla, one cup of all purpose flour, one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, a pinch of salt, a pinch of cinnamon, a teaspoon of olive oil, and half a cup of low fat yogurt. To make the strawberry sauce, you will need a pint of frozen, unsweetened strawberries, half a cup of water, a tablespoon of granulated sugar, and two teaspoons of cornstarch.

The first step to making this recipe is to bring the strawberries, sugar, water and cornstarch to a boil in a sauce pan over medium to high heat. You only need to cook the sauce until it has thickened, which takes about a minute. Next, you will want to beat the milk, vanilla and egg white in a bowl. Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder and beat the entire mixture until it is well blended. You only need a small nonstick skillet, which you should heat until water sizzles freely within it. Brush the skillet with oil to keep the pancakes from sticking. Pour two tablespoons of battle into the skillet for each individual pancake, and cook for a minute before flipping over for thirty seconds. Once the pancakes are cooked, spoon the strawberry sauce over the pancakes and garnish them with the yogurt.

The Diabetic Exchange per Pancake: 1 Starch, ½ Milk, 1 Fruit/Vegetable.

Creamy Peach Omelets:

To create this recipe, you will need an 8-ounce package of low calorie cream cheese which has already been softened, eight eggs, a pinch of salt, two packets of artificial sweetener, a quarter cup of heavy cream, two tablespoons of diet margarine, and half a cup of peaches mixed with two packets of sweetener into a blender.

The first step to making this recipe is to combine everything except for the peaches and margarine into a bowl. Beat the ingredients until they are smooth, and then pour the egg mixture into melted margarine. Cook the mixture over low heat in an omelet pan, until the eggs have begun to set. Loosen the eggs with a spatula, then tilt the pan allowing the egg to spread to the sides of the pan. When the omelet’s center is firm, spoon the peaches into the center and carefully fold the edges of the omelet into the center.

A Retro Candy Gift Box Makes a Sweet Treat

Retro candy gift boxes make a fantastic gift for everyone on your gift list. If you or someone you know is longing for a sweet treat from childhood, but you just cannot seem to find it. Do not despair. Retro candy from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s is still available. You just need to know where to look to find the perfect present: a retro candy package that is filled with all of the sweet and tasty goodies you remember.

Each attractive retro candy gift box comes in a variety of sizes chock full of a variety of nostalgic confections. Depending on the decade ordered, the gift box may include such delicacies as Jujubes, Grape Heads, Runts, Saf-T Pops, Pixie Sticks, Jolly Ranchers, Beeman hard candies, Lemon Heads or Atomic Bombs. Your gift box will have a mixture of small, medium and large candies that will bring a smile to the face of even the most challenging person on your list.

We remember eating (or wanting desperately to eat) our favourite candy when we were young and it brings back all of our fond memories as if they happened just yesterday. Trick or Treating with a pack of neighbourhood friends was an annual tradition. Afterward we would all race home, dump out our pillow cases and look for our favourites.

Everyone had his or her favourite candy and trading with friends to get more of the one you loved was all part of the fun. Your friend loved the flavour of molasses and peanut butter Mary Janes, so you traded all of yours from your Halloween cache for her peanut butter and coconut Chick-O-Sticks. Of all the events in our lives, we remember these kinds of little moments with fondness; we can almost taste their sweetness even now all these years later.

Chewy, sticky Bit-O-Honey, the salty peanut flavour of a Pearson Salted Nut Roll or the spicy flavour of tiny cinnamon Red Hots, Teaberry or Beech-Nut Chewing Gum, Babe Ruth bars, LifeSavers and the Whitman Sampler were all favourites of the 40s and 50s.

SkyBars, Sen-Sen Breath Refreshment with their strong liquorice flavour, Neapolitan Coconut Bars, Fruit Stripe Gum, Pop Rocks, Bottle Caps, Wax Lips and Bazooka Bubble Gum, with the comic on the inside of the wrapper, were all popular treats in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

A retro candy gift box makes a perfect gift for birthdays, housewarming parties, going away presents and thank-you gifts; even a new mom or mom-to-be would enjoy candy from her childhood. Cannot think of anything to get grandpa for his birthday? Why not get him nostalgic candy, his ticket to a walk down memory lane. No matter who the gift box is for, one thing is certain, receiving a fun box of old-time candies is sure to be remembered long after the candy is gone.

Whether the preference is chocolate candies like Necco Wafers Chocolate, Look Bars or a Pearson Bun Bar, or hot and spicy cinnamon Red Hots, fizzy Zotz Sours or Swedish Fish there is a retro candy gift box that is just right.
