THE SWEET STUFF

LITTLE DEBBIE AMBASSADORS

There's nothing like sipping on an ice cold, creamy milkshake on a hot summer day. One of my daughter's favorite treats is an over-the-top shake. Yes, my kids and I have fallen in love with these ginormous, sweet, elaborate shakes we have seen on social media!

My girls love all of the foods and flavors that celebrate camping life. From s'mores to popcorn, any kind of handheld snack that's reminiscent of outdoor family time, pulls at our heart-strings. When I saw Little Debbie's Happy Camper Cakes, I knew just how to whip them into a delightful camp food-inspired dessert.

The Bigfoot Happy Camper Shake was wittingly named by my silliest little girl. Mason jars make a perfect mug for these gigantic milkshakes. My Bigfoot Happy Campers Shake is happily blended with frozen bananas, Little Debbie® Happy Camper Cakes (chocolate) and dark chocolate almond milk. That's right, NO ice cream in this swirled up concoction, so technically, it can pass as a smoothie! To make the milkshake scream camping, I dressed it up with chocolate and peanut butter drizzles, toasted marshmallows, banana chips, fresh popcorn, and a Little Debbie® Happy Camper Cake. Don't forget to add an adorable paper straw.

The Bigfoot Happy Camper Shake

Yields: 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 Little Debbie Happy Camper Cakes, Chocolate
  • 4 large frozen bananas
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups of chocolate almond milk

Directions:

  • Start with 1 cup of chocolate almond milk and slowly add more until the consistency you like is achieved.
  • Puree all of the above ingredients until completely combined.
Garnishes:
  • Chocolate fudge sauce, place in a squeeze bottle
  • Peanut butter, melted and placed in a squeeze bottle
  • Freshly popped popcorn
  • Banana Chips
  • Little Debbie Happy Camper Cakes (1 per glass)
  • Mini Marshmallows

Assembly:

  • Take each mason jar and squeeze the chocolate sauce inside the rim, circling twice so it will drip down.
  • Pour the shake inside of the mason jar, leaving about 1-2 inches of room from the top.
  • Melt peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and place in a squeeze bottle. Drizzle around rim and outside of the rim, so it will drip down the jar.
  • Take a handful of mini marshmallows and place on one side of the opening of the mason jar. Toast marshmallows with kitchen torch.
  • Skewer the Little Debbie® Happy Camper Cake on a straw, to help it stand upright, and allow it to lean on marshmallows.
  • Fill open space in mason jar with popcorn.
  • Place banana chips on the dripping peanut butter down the sides of the mason jar.

Enjoy!

Happy Camper Arrow Treats

July 17th, 2017

Little Debbie's Happy Camper Cakes are so versatile and the perfect shape to recreate a popular camping/summer camp activity! My family LOVES archery and as I was indulging in one of these tasty Little Debbie Happy Camper Cakes (chocolate of course), I thought to myself "these look exactly like the tip of an arrow". Off to the kitchen I go, determined to build a snack that is representative of our favorite outdoor sport, archery.

These fun and creative treats are made of 3 simple, easy to find ingredients. My girls loved assembling their arrows and using their favorite colored fruit leather. My Happy Camper Arrow Treats are great for outdoor parties, camping themed birthdays, or any gathering celebrating the great outdoors.

Happy Camper Arrow Treats

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of Little Debbie Happy Camper Cakes (this will yield 5 arrows)
  • 5 pretzel rods
  • 3-4 fruit leather squares

Directions:

  • Remove wrappers from all off the Little Debbie Happy Camper Cakes
  • Place each of the Happy Camper Cake on the top of a pretzel rod. Push down gently until about half way into the tree cake.
  • Using clean scissors, cut the fruit leather into a pointy, oblong shape (like a football). Cut small slits up each of the sides, but be sure to leave a little room in the center so the "feather" doesn't rip apart.
  • Place 2 "feathers" on the opposite end of the Happy Camper Cake by slightly wrapping it around the pretzel rod. The fruit leather will stick!

Enjoy!
