Fall is quickly approaching with the tell tale signal of back to school gear filling the isles of our local stores. We have purchased the back to school clothes, the backpack, pencils, and completely blank sheets of paper waiting to be filled. Now that the back to school supplies are out of the way I've been looking at after school supplies - like yummy snacks and quick recipes. Our fall schedule is so crazy that 3 days a week I will not even be home at dinner time. Which makes finding good snacks and quick dinners all the more important. Especially with a very active, growing toddler. To bad the school isles didn't contain maids and cooks, or at the very least ideas for back-to-school meals.
However, I did find great after school snack recipe ideas at Dollar General. My favorite recipe is the Crispy Mac and Cheese Cups. What kid doesn't love Macaroni and Cheese? I love that they took kids favorite KRAFT Macaroni and Cheese and added some "grown up" ingredients like broccoli, onions, and bacon.
*Tip* If you bake these in regular size muffin cups they're the perfect size for an after school snack. But, if you bake them in the giant size muffin cups they make a great dinner side – or after work snack for a grown up!
You can find the full recipe for Crispy Mac and Cheese Cups, as well as more fun after school snack recipes like these Frosty Strawberry Pops and Cheesy Bones at Dollar General. As well as recipes for quick dinners, appetizers, desserts and more that include manyof the new KRAFT products at Dollar General.
