You are the Apple of my Eye......

We are almost at the end of the first week of school and things have been going pretty smoothly!! YAY!!! I decided they needed another first week of school treat, so inside the Girls {and Honeys!} lunches today is this super sweet "Apple" treat!

After seeing pictures of them on the Pinterest, I was able to find the recipe on Gourmet Mom on the Go. I did change the leaves and used Air Heads candy instead of frosting for them. Using a small heart cookie cutter, I made two heart leafs per apple. I think they turned out pretty cute! I was surprised to find that the coloring was from Jello and not food coloring but after making them...and tasting them....Jello makes krispy treats quite deeee-lious!!!

Since no treat would be complete without cute packaging....I found the adorable and Free {Thank You!!} Apple of my Eye tag on Jam*n*Jilly! It was the perfect tag!!

Don't you think "Apple of my Eye" a funny saying?! According to the U.S. Apple Association...The "expression dates back to ancient Greece and Rome, when people conceived of the pupil of the eye to be, like the apple, a global object. The word itself comes from the Anglo-Saxon “aeppel”, which literally meant both “eye” and “apple.” In addition to providing the literal, vital sense of vision, the pupil was also regarded as the figurative "window" to the treasured secrets within each of us. Thus, the “apple of my eye” meant someone very beloved". Interesting, don't you think!!!

I'm going to "try" and spend some time cleaning my studio today so that I might be able to work in here...I feel the need to make happy things!!!!

Hope you have a Great day!!!!
