Easy School Treats

easy school lunch box treats

With a new school year upon us you may be thinking about bake sales, tokens of appreciation for teacher, nervous kids, etc. To help with all that Best Friends for Frosting created a go-to website for cute but EASY ideas for school themed treats! The site is Back To School Bake-Off, and I was flattered to be asked to contribute a simple idea for it, and today I’m sharing it with you guys.

I was sent a box filled with decorating tools like cupcake frosting, cookie icing, writing icing, sprinkles, gel, etc. and was asked to create a treat idea that mothers can easily do themselves. Well, I’m all about easy around here, and I have 2 little ‘guinea pigs’ of my own to test out the creations so I was happy to get to work.

  • I had a couple of ideas: 1) ‘write’ sweet notes on cookies so kids see it when they open their lunch box; and 2) help the kids keep up with the days of the week by ‘writing’ them on a rice krispy treat.
  • For each idea I used either sugar cookies {slice & bake}, or rice krispies treat rectangles as the base. I covered them in cookie icing which is sort of runny and spreads to fill in the space, and also dries hard so you can wrap or stack them.
  • I used coordinating writing icing to spell out the words. This also dries hard for storage and stackability.
  • With the days of the week treats you can let your child pick out the treat in the morning and put in his lunch box or back pack. Just a fun idea to help make those school days a little more exciting to look forward to!

There are lots more ideas for you to see so take a look at all the contributions, here.
