Sweet & Simple Snacks Pt. 2: Effortless Indulgence

Raspberry Lemonade Pound Cake and S’mores Snack Mix

Yesterday, I brought you two deliciously simple snacks (Parmesan Crisps and PB & J Snack Mix). Those guys, although awesome, were also more on the healthy side. You had to know there’s only so much “healthy” that I can dish out. That’s why we’re going to indulge today.

These are the perfect treats when you don’t have a lot of time or energy. They’re a little bit naughty, but they’re so tasty you won’t care! Plus, who can argue with three ingredients & a max preparation time of five minutes?

Behind door number 1, you’ll find Raspberry Lemonade Pound Cake.

All you need for this guy is a slice of store-bought lemon pound cake, some raspberry jam, and a dollop of Cool Whip. The tart lemon cake meets the sweet jam, creating a balance of bright and tantalizing flavors. It’s a tasty little dessert, but you could even get away with serving it for breakfast. Pound cake is a semi-acceptable breakfast food. And jam? Jam is practically made for the breakfast table!

  • 1 tablespoon raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon Cool Whip

To Serve it Up:

Spread the jam on top of the pound cake. Top with a dollop of Cool Whip. Enjoy!


Behind door number 2: S’mores Snack Mix

This stuff is smack-yourself-in-the-face simple. And yet, it’s so addicting! You toss some graham cracker bits into a bowl with chocolate-covered marshmallows and cinnamon chips, then microwave it until it’s melted and toasty. It’s like instant s’mores in a bowl! The marshmallows turn ooey gooey and the chocolate is good and melty, just like it would be in a campfire s’more. Plus, the cinnamon chips add an extra pop of flavor. You won’t be able to keep your hands out of the bowl!

  1. I’ve been in the same boat as you. Always sitting in class wishing I had some sort of snack to munch on. Then when I started packing snacks…it only took so long before I got tired of them. But this helps so much!! Heehee am gonna make these.
