Quick and easy after school snacks.

Quick and easy back to school snacks.

If you thought that Amoretti Martini Mixes are just for beverages, think again! Now that summer is coming to an end, it’s time to start packing school lunches instead of picnic baskets and the family van. A great snack is jello, using Amoretti’s Premium Wild Strawberry Martini Mix. With only about 75 calories per serving and 6 grams of sugar (the leading national brand contains about 18 grams of sugar); your little scholar can enjoy a healthy snack made with real vine ripened California strawberries. They will love the flavor, and you will enjoy the fact that it contains no artificial flavors or colors, no artificial sweeteners, and no high fructose corn syrup.

 Homemade Wild Strawberry Jello

Whisk the gelatin in a ¼ cup of the martini mix until thick. Add the hot water, always whisking, until slightly thickened. Add the rest of the martini mix and whisk well. Pour into a loaf pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Optional: pour into a cookie sheet with sides, once chilled; use a cookie cutter to cut into desired shapes.

It’s that time of year again! Shopping for school supplies and getting the kids up early is stressful enough. For parents with children who have nut allergies, there is much more to worry about than manic parking and tardy slips. An unavoidable allergy shouldn’t keep students from enjoying their favorite snacks or lunches. Thankfully, SuperButter has an incredible nutty, roasted flavor, WITHOUT peanuts, tree nuts, or any other major allergens! Below is a simple but timeless snack, and once you open your first jar of SuperButter, the possibilities become endless!
