Spring has begun, and these lollipops are a celebration of the colorful season. Simple, pretty, and super fun, Jollypops are the perfect treats to make with friends! I first made these delicious pops with my pals Parker, Darcey, and Lou, who have all been in past Wondermint episodes. We made super colorful lollipops, snuck a few Jolly Ranchers while we worked away on creating our beautiful pop, and took some of the pictures you will see below. Parker & I have also made shamrocks made with melted Jolly Ranchers for St. Patrick’s Day (see photos at bottom of post). They were a big hit in our classroom! You can find out how to make your own Jollypops below. Have fun!
Do you like ice cream sandwiches? If so, then you’ll probably like these. My friend, Parker, and I made these after seeing a recipe on a Honey Maid graham cracker box. They’re healthier than traditional ice cream sandwiches, but taste just as good. READ MORE…

Are you looking for a yummy treat to serve on July 4th? Well, I made one that is red, white & blue and includes some of my favorite snacks! I call this recipe Fourth of July Trifle. Make sure you watch the HOW-TO VIDEO to see how easy it is to make this. Below are some instructions.
Start with a nice clear glass mason jar, bowl, or drinking glass. Place crumbled graham crackers, angel food cake or cookies at the bottom of your container. If you want to stick to the red, white & blue theme, the angel food cake or coconut shavings work great.
Place a layer of yogurt on top of the first layer. We used unsweetened plain greek yogurt.
Layer the red fruit (raspberries or strawberries) on top of the yogurt.
Add another layer of white coconut or yogurt.
Add the blueberries on top. Depending on how tall your glass is you can keep repeating layers! A strawberry, cherry, or mint sprig makes a nice topping.

If you enjoyed the raspberry nutella wafflewich (a cross between a sandwich & a waffle) we made a few months ago, then you’ll probably like this lunch version wafflewich.

If you have any comments I’d love to hear them and please share any interesting wafflewich ideas you come up with in our comments section at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
My cousin Tammy visited from Taiwan and I showed her how to make Chinese potstickers, and she taught me a few Chinese words. Potstickers are healthy and delicious and easy for a kid to make with some help from someone over 14 who knows how to use a frying pan. And they are perfect to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Dim Sum makes a great treat for Chinese New Year or any time of year.
