I love to cook but most of the time, quick and easy is the name of the game in this house. And that’s especially true when June arrives! Between field trips, end-of-year parties, Zackary’s birthday and the normal work and activities that fill our lives, there simply isn’t a lot of extra time for cooking right now! But Kraft Canada is coming to the rescue for busy parents everywhere with its brand new website: www.kraftfoodhacks.com!
With a collection of clever recipes that take just a few ingredients and a few minutes to prepare, it’s a busy mom’s dream come true. I considered testing out one of the easy chicken recipes, but when I saw how adorable the Frozen Pudding Dots were, I knew I had to give them a try!
Frozen Pudding Dots
- 1 pkg. 4-serving size Jell-O Vanilla Instant Pudding
- 1 cup cold milk
- 2 Tbsp. multi-coloured sprinkles
Beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.)
Spoon into resealable plastic bag; press out excess air, then seal.
Cut small piece from one bottom corner of bag. Pipe pudding into dots on parchment-covered baking sheet; top with sprinkles. Freeze 2 hours.
When I whisked up the pudding, it seemed thick enough to work in my icing bag instead of a plastic bag, so I fitted on a star tip and gave it a try. The results were fantastic and created beautiful little rosettes with no effort at all. In fact, they looked so pretty that I left some of the Frozen Pudding Dots plain instead of adding sprinkles.
After just over an hour in the deep freeze, the dots were frozen solid and ready to be added to a sundae made with vanilla ice cream and raspberry syrup. But personally, I think I like the idea of eating the little morsels just as they are even more. They’re perfect for a quick sweet snack!
There are plenty of other great food hacks on the Kraft Food Hacks website and I can’t wait to try them all. I know Benjamin will love the Rancher’s Choice Corn on the Cob recipe, and I want to try the Herb Basted Grilled Chicken! But all the recipes have one thing in common; they’re quick and easy to make! Check out the new site for yourself and try some fun and easy recipes this month. With the end of school almost here, you deserve a break from long dinner preparations. And Kraft Food Hacks is here to help!
