My kids love to take their lunch, but what they love even more than taking their lunch is when I do fun lunches for them to take to school and show off. It’s an added perk if I make something like this springtime chocolate dipped Bugles recipe and toss in a fruit cup. Last year my daughter told me the fun lunch that I sent her made everything say she was so cool, lol. She was in kindergarten so I imagine it probably was cool and still is because even my 5th grader loves it when is send her to school with a fun lunch surprise.
I recently made Vayda a fun spring lunch since the days have been so nice where we are from. She loves spring – flowers, trees, butterflies, frogs and cupcakes lol. She is a spring girl who is ready for summer to be here so she can spend her days riding her horse. So I decided to surprise her with a fun spring lunch and remind her that spring is right around the corner.
To make the springtime lunchbox all I did was make the sandwiches and use a cookie cutter to turn them into cute little butterfly sandwiches. As for the rest of it, I made some Chocolate Dipped Bugles, and the rest was EASY! My kids love Del Monte® fruit and Vayda always tells me that peaches reminded her of spring so I made sure to put some in her lunch. Along with Juicy Juice®, to drink and Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to clean up those messy hands because I don’t know how kids to it but they always manage to make a mess, even when you think it’s impossible. Well, my kids do anyway. So I do my best to always send them with Wet Ones® Hand Wipes.
The hardest thing about making the lunch was the Chocolate Dipped Bugles but they were even easy to make.
To make these delicious Chocolate Dipped Bugles you’ll need the following
- Springtime sprinkles
Follow the below directions:
- Melt chocolate and dip each Bugle in half way, set on a piece of wax paper and add a few sprinkles before the chocolate is dry.
- Allow to dry and enjoy.
The best thing about these spring chocolate dipped Bugles is that they taste fabulous. They have the whole sweet and salty thing going on, the kids love them especially with fun sprinkles in their lunchbox. Oh and of course they go fabulously with just about any fun lunchbox idea you might come up with. And, thanks to Del Monte® coming up with creative lunchbox ideas for your kids is going to be a little easier right now.
