PostHeaderIcon Easy Halloween Classroom Treat Ideas For Teachers

School Friendly Halloween Treats - DelightfulChaos.com
I spent most of Spencer’s kindergarten year in the classroom. I would help the teacher out with whatever she needed. During 2nd grade, I bonded with his teacher over our love for Pinterest. I helped her with many food related projects because, as she put it, “You’re way better at that stuff than I am”. She honestly was amazing! We did find it a task to find thngs to make, with the kids, that wouldnt end up being confusing or a total disaster.

I decided to put together a list of things that would be fun, and seem fairly easy, for teachers to make with their students. If you have any that you would like to add, please leave a comment below with your link. Remember, we are looking for simple, kid friendly ideas. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Fast and Easy Mini Monkey Bread

I have always wanted to make Monkey Bread and I am now getting around to it. This are so easy that it’s something to let the kids help you make! The neighbor actually came and knocked on my apartment door to ask me what I was baking a bit ago because apparently the entire hallway smells good lol.


If you are wondering why mine may look a little different than the instructions, I picked up the Pillsbury Grands biscuits on accident so I worked with it. Be sure you pick up just the regular biscuits. they come 5 to a pack NOT 8. They came out so delicious even with the wrong ones. I will try it again with the correct ones and post a picture at a later time. You can never go wrong with monkey bread!

PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Easy Cream Cheese Frosting

A few years ago, I decided I needed to learn to make my own icing and frosting. Those prepackaged frosting tubs are just loaded with bad stuff. Yes, I use them too , on occasion but, nothing beats a home made frosting. I can sit with one of the store bought ones and eat it with a spoon. Yes, I know but it’s oh so good and full of sugar :) This is one of my favorite recipes and it is an easy frosting to make! I hope you enjoy it as well.


  • (2) 8 oz. blocks Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar (Slowly add 1 additional cup to taste/texture if needed)
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 shakes of McCormick Saigon Cinnamon

(This recipe makes enough to cover one single layer cake. For a Double layer double ingredients)


Combine all ingredients and whip on low until peaks form and ingredients is thoroughly combined. If you make the Duncan Hines Carrot Cake, this is a fast and simple icing to throw on top


PostHeaderIcon Tribes-A-Dozen Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread Mixes #Giveaway


To be honest, I love bread. There is just nothing like warm bread out of the oven with a little butter or spread, yum! Since I am also Italian, you know there can’t be pasta without bread! The boys seem to be bread addicts too. I really can’t imagine where they get that from.

Many moons ago, I bought a bread maker. I was in my 20’s and thought, why not, I can do that. Flash forward, over 10 years later, and I now make all my bread in the oven. Sure, it’s not nearly as easy as dumping everything into a machine but the end result and accomplishment is so much better.

Now I know not everyone has the time to bake bread from scratch, so, let me introduce you to Tribes-A-Dozen. They manufacturer a unique kosher line of three Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread Mixes — Simply Spelt, Traditional, and Wholey Wheat. Their wholesome, all natural bread mixes bring you back to a kitchen from long ago. Recreating the warmth, the heavenly aroma, and the unmistakable taste. They keep it simple so you can bake these traditional breads to share fresh with friends and loved ones, and make every meal special. Hallah made easy, no one will guess it came from a mix because it tastes just like it was made from scratch. “Break Bread, Not Tradition”
