Your Favorite Childhood Snacks Made At Home

August 7, 2011

These store-bought snacks get transformed into something amazing in the home kitchen.  They taste better and are better for you, no artificial colors, flavorings, or preservatives here.  Try making one of these snacks at home and you might like them better than the real thing.

Homemade Wheat Thins
This healthy snack is great

Homemade Fruit Leather
This homemade fruit leather resembles Fruit By The Foot in design but tastes like real fruit.

Homemade Thin Mints
These Thin Mints are not made by Girl Scouts.  This version is allergy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.

Homemade Oreos
These Oreos taste just like the real thing but better!

Homemade Cheese Goldfish
Your kids will love to make this childhood favorite with you.  You'll even learn how to make a tiny fish cookie cutter.

I'll have to try the Wheat Thin recipe - looks great! We make our fruit-by-the-foot with fresh berries or even nutrient rich frozen and the kids gobble them up!
