Healthy Cookie Dough Bites

We are tickled to be back guest posting at Mandy's Recipe Box! Time to tell the truth........when making homemade cookies do you eat a cookie or some cookie dough first? Truth is I've usually eaten so much cookie dough that by the time the first batch of cookies are out I'm too full to eat one. Shameless I know, I shouldn't admit it, I'm not proud of it, but it happens every time.
  Healthy Raw Cookie Dough Bites - I can't believe how great these cookie dough bites taste! Perfect healthy snack to cure your sweet tooth!

College Student Easter Basket


When we think of Easter baskets we usually think of kids. At least I do, since I have four. But what about older kids or those living on their own going to college? They need love,too! How fun would it be to give this Easter Basket filled with things just for College students?

When,  I was little, I loved Easter morning. I loved seeing what the Easter Bunny left for us. It was usually a basket of Easter candy, our decorated boiled eggs, and either a Spring outfit or Easter dress. The Easter Bunny also hid eggs with coins in them, which we just loved! But once we moved out of the house or got married, the fun ended, sadly. But that's ok. Because since I have had children of my own, it's fun to watch them discover what the Easter Bunny left for them.
I headed to Smith's to pick up everything I needed for my basket. You can personalize this to fit your college student's needs and likes. Head over to Smith's Pinterest board for more Easter fun. This basket is for a girl so you would need to adjust it for a guy, obviously, but here's what I included:
  • Laundry detergent
  • Razors
  • Shaving cream
  • trail mix
  • Crystal Light
  • Lotion
  • Dish soap
  • Muffin Mix
  • Easter candy, of course
  • Homemade candy (recipe to come later)

Wouldn't that be so fun to surprise your college student with? Or even someone living on their own who would love some Easter cheer! #EasterBasketHop
