    Usually fruit or popcorn. Something easy. We homeschool so I am cooking 3 meals a day anyways. My 10 year old LOVES to cook so sometimes she makes fresh bread or cookies.

    We love to make something warm & fresh – cookies, brownies, cinnamon swirls. Especially in the fall & winter when it’s chilly or snowy – add some hot cocoa & everyone’s happy!

    We like to make s’mores…..whether outside over the fire or inside in the oven or microwave! So the chocolate would definately come in handy!

    My older daughter’s go-to after school snack is a PB&J sandwich. Easy, but she loves it and it gives her enough energy to make it until dinner.

    When I have kids one day I can’t wait to make a different cookie for them to try after school! Chocolate chip is by far the best in my opinion.

    I like to make my own trail mix. Then we can put whatever we like into the mix. But for extra special days chocolate chip cookies are always my fallback. 🙂

    I love making quick snacks to have on hand for munching before dinner. My favorite are ants on a log (celery w/ peanut butter or cream cheese, topped with raisins)

    Nothing beats making chocolate chip cookies from scratch! There is the bonding time, practicing measurements, eating the dough, and then eating the cookies. YUMMY!!!
