Nutter Butter Ice Cream Cones

We have less than 2 weeks until we head back to school and I am going to have 2 of my kiddos in school and one in preschool. I can’t even believe how time flies but I have to admit, I am sort of looking forward to some quieter times around my house and getting back into our routine!

Another thing I am looking forward to is a Little to make lunches for. Zach is heading into high school and he isn’t into cutesy lunches. Tyler, however, thinks they are pretty cool! I asked him what sort of things he wanted to take in his lunch and then made a couple “lunch boxes” so he could check them out! He is soo excited!!

What kid doesn’t love a lunch that consists of a hot dog, fruit, cheese and oreos? Yum!

Peanut Butter Roll Up

The second one I made was a peanut butter roll up. It is a favorite lunch for Tyler! Plus we added some veggies, apple slices and a couple of Chips Ahoy cookies!

I also decided to make a fun treat that he could take in his lunch box and these Nutter Butter “Ice Cream Cones” were just the thing!

Cute, right?

We ran to Fred Meyer (Kroger Stores) to get some snacks and things to make our “Ice Cream Cones”. I love Fred Meyer! It is by far my store of choice and I love that I can get everything I need in one place!

All you need is Nutter Butter cookies, chocolate bark, sprinkles and chocolate candies for the “cherry” on top!

Plus I grabbed a couple of other snacks, like the multipack of Chips Ahoy!, Nutter Butter cookies and Oreos. Plus Teddy Grahams because we sort of love them! These are such great snacks to put in the kid’s lunched or even as an after school snack, especially if you are on the go a lot like we are!

Nutter Butter

It is super quick and I made these in about 2 minutes!

Melt your chocolate bark
Dip the Nutter Butter cookie into the chocolate
Sprinkle with sprinkles
and Top with a chocolate candy to make a “cherry on top”
