Fresh Recipe: Let it Snow Mix

Let it show mix

This weekend I was able to stop by WBTV NEWS to share some great gift giving ideas and this simple and easy LET IT SNOW mix recipe.  We all know the true way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, so when putting together gifts of gratitude I say be sure to fill them up as well!


Serves: 16
Serving Size: 1 snack cup
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 90 seconds + 15 minute stand time 

24 oz./680 g white chocolate baking pieces 

6 cups rice or corn square/ checkered cereal 

1 cup mini pretzels, any variety 

1 cup plain or honey-roasted peanuts 

12 oz./340 mini candy-coated chocolate candies  


1. In the TupperWave® Stack Cooker 3-Qt./3 L Casserole, place baking pieces. Microwave on high power 45 seconds. Remove from microwave, let stand 1 minute. Microwave an additional 45 seconds. Remove from microwave, let stand 1 minute, stir until smooth.

2. Gently stir in cereal, pretzels and peanuts until well coated.

3. Spread mixture evenly onto the Silicone Wonder® Mat; gently press candies into mixture. Let stand 15 minutes to set. Break into pieces, serve in Snack Cups.

The Snack Cups from Tupperware are prefect to store them in when gifting this season.  Or, put in a Soup Mug and say how “SOUPER” they are.

Here is a tag I created so you can print to use with the SOUP MUGS (even if you choose not to fill it up with this mix or candy of your choosing). You can print of AVERY TAGS 80511 or just print on cardstock and cut yourself.  souper with gloves tags

If you love the idea of appreciation gifts, but just don’t have the time . . .   LET ME DO IT FOR YOU!  Check out my gifting giving service HERE.

Fresh TIP: DIY Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day is right around the corner and those gifts don’t have to break the bank.

I know as a mom one of my favorite things is when my kids make things for me. **It makes my heart smile** I also love to be pampered because  –  lets be honest –  what woman doesn’t.
This Fresh Tip will help you do both! This year, why not Make Your Own Sugar Scrubs and Bath Salts?

Sugar Scrub:

Making sugar scrub is really simple, and you can’t really go wrong with a recipe for it.

  • 2 part sugar (white or brown sugar)
  • 1 part oil (olive oil, coconut oil, etc)
  • Optional: essential oils of your preference

I usually prefer my scrubs to not be quite as moist.  If you like your scrub to be a bit creamier, just mix in extra oil.

  1. Mix all ingredients and store in an air tight container (hint hint, Tupperware.)
  2. Use 1 tablespoon as needed in the shower. Scrub skin with the mixture and rinse will. it will leave your skin feeling like silk.

Bath Salts:

  • 2 part Epsom salt
  • 1 part sea salt (olive oil, coconut oil, etc)
  • essential oils of your preference (sandalwood, lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, etc)
  • fresh herbs or juice that pair with your oil choice
  • Optional: a drop or two of liquid food coloring
  1. Mix all the ingredients together with a fork, making sure to break up clumps.
  2. Use 1 tablespoon in the bath and relax.

Fresh for the Holidays: Appreciation Gifts


The Holidays are here!

This is the time many say thanks to Teachers, Staff Members, Church Leaders, Babysitters you name it.  (even those GIVE BACKS, where you you were not expecting something, but don’t want to be empty handed when someone gifts to you)  The issue typically is how much to spend and is it even it in your budget??
The best gifts are ones that touch the heart and the stomach –  (yes, we all know the stomach is really what leads to the heart)
Recently on WBTV I shared a simple recipe for candy bark.  I love this for appreciation gifts, so simple and inexpensive, but also a  great thing for the family to do together.  With my kids, I love to make a candy bar where they can make there own bark for their teachers .. . .  I also love making our own turtles or brownie brittle.
When you wrap them, yes I believe the more corny the better for the saying on the tag 🙂
Here are some fun tags that I have used and hope my Fresh Friends can use as well!
Thank you card teacher
And here is the Bark Recipe we mentioned on air 🙂
