The Partiologist: An Apple a Day!

An Apple a Day!

I am so excited about this back to school party, I can't wait to show you everything!  One of the displays included apples and a chalkboard.  Isn't that the first thing you think of when school is mentioned?  Apples?  Chalkboards?  And Chocolate?

Apple for Teacher

And so easy to create.  Well, wrapping the mini Hershey bars was easy, making the wrapper was not.  It's me you're talking to people!  I have found that I LOVE making pintable's, sometimes I spend more time making the printable than the treat. 

Of course, cookies need to be part of going back to school, so I created these for SugarEd Productions Sugar Art School.

Including a detailed step by step tutorial!

For the well being of each student, I added fruit.  Healthy, ruby red strawberries.  And because they are being served at the Back To School Party, they write.  Yep, I bet cha didn't know strawberries could write, but I'm tellin' ya, they can.

So what do you think of that?

Super?  Me too!
 Just in case you're not sure what they are, I'll tell you.  Red colored pencil tips!

1.  Start with white and a few chocolate candy melts.
2.  Melt and add enough yellow to get desired color.
3.  Dip the washed and dried strawberries in the chocolate.
4.  After the chocolate has set, dip the tip in red.

Another healthy back to school fruit...Apples. 
I thought these pancakes would be a challenge, instead they were delicious.  Now a little something you would have never guessed - I've never eaten a pancake.  I always thought, why eat a pancake when you can eat a cupcake?  If this is what a pancake taste like, I've been missing out.

Apple Pancakes!

I'm really not sure they are pancakes, they may just be flat cupcakes because they're so delicious.
Now if these pancakes/cupcakes made it to my must try list - you must try them also!  And you know what they say - an apple a day keeps the principal away!  Or maybe doctor.  Or both.

Apple Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 granny smith apples, peeled and grated
  • 2 tbsp. butter
Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon together. Beat the egg and milk together and pour in the flour mixture and mix gently until combined. Stir in grated apple.
Heat butter in nonstick skillet over low heat until melted and bubbling. Add tablespoons of the pancake mixture. Cook each pancake until it starts to bubble, then flip it over and cook on the other side until cooked through.
Repeat until all of the pancake batter has been used.
Keep warm until serving and top with your favorite pancake syrup.
