5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake ( I also made a vanilla one since I am not a chocolate lover)
4 T. flour 4 T. sugar 2 T. cocoa (Add these 3 ingredients to mug and mix well)
Add: 1 Egg and mix well. Next add: 3 T. Milk & 3 T. oil (mix well) Add a splash of vanilla
Mix everything till well blended. You can also add 3 T. of chocolate chips if desired (I didn't desire :o)
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 minutes.
I never really measure stop...am horrible about it actually, but everything always turns out great! I will try to guess my amounts to help you, but you can always add more or less powdered sugar to your satisfaction.
1 and a half Cups Powdered Sugar (maybe a little more LOL)
About a third of a stick of margarine
maybe a 4th cup (if that of water)
2 big splashes vanilla
A couple of other ideas I have are:
Biscuit PizzasFor these I use a can of ready made biscuits, some pizza sauce and whatever toppings your kids would like to add.
Let them each flatten a biscuit ( you can have the each do one on a little piece of foil with their name written at the top in permanent marker...that way there is no fighting over whose pizza is whose)
Add sauce and toppings and put onto cookie sheet or pizza pan in the oven at 350 degrees for about 8 -10 minutes.
I make applesauce all the time and it is so fast and simple. I don't cook my apples first, although you can and it will turn out just about the same. With our preschoolers at school, we just cut up apples into tiny cubes, put them in a blender and add a little bit of water. You can also add some cinnamon if you'd like. Let kids take turn pushing the blender button. You might have to stop and use a spoon to mix it during the process. It is very easy and a fun, healthy snack.
Once you have all the snacks made that you want ( can add popcorn, chips, fruit, candy, etc)
Now it is time to set up a small concession stand before you start your movie.
Place all foods items on a table, give each child some loose change to purchase a ticket and their snacks for the night. Remind them they might want to save some money for "Intermission" :o)
Once everyone has their snacks....settle in for the movie. During "Intermission" to get their legs moving (while the lights are out).....blow up a couple balloons and put a Glow Stick inside each one before tying. Let them play volleyball in the dark for a few minutes before restarting the movie.
Just a few ideas I had on this drizzling kinda day! Enjoy!
