Of course we want to make the most of what little summer is left, so we decided to have a little impromptu party for the kids. We didn't do anything too fancy. We just picked up some WONKA™ Peel-A-Pops, some "Wonkafied" treats I made, and headed for the deck. You know. Because I am not crazy enough to give my preschoolers anything gooey and melty indoors if I can help it!
I quickly prepared a platter with fresh fruit and WONKA™ Peel-A-Pops and headed out to the deck. Of course all the fighting ceased, and I was soon followed by 3 very curious children. They immediately started begging for a popsicle. I HAD to have fun with them a bit, and told them there were no popsicles in the house. After all, these treats are Wonka Peel-A-Pops, not popsicles!
After seeing the sheer confusion on their faces, I told them all about WONKA™ Peel-A-Pops and how these frozen treats are anything but ordinary. The kids quickly grabbed their Peel-A-Pops, and had so much fun peeling them away to reveal the ice cream inside. My 3 and 4 year olds didn't get it immediately, but after seeing their teenage brother peel his "skin" back, they quickly followed suit.
After we got done eating our Peel-A-Pops outdoors, I had another surprise up my sleeve. I decided to make another treat, only "Wonkafied" I made some simple peanut butter candy balls, but I added some Rainbow Nerds to the mix. These crunchy, peanut buttery balls are delicious on their own, but with the tangy fruity Nerds flavors added, they were truly over the top delicious. Oh, and they only took about 10 minutes to prepare.
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter (Crunchy or creamy both work well!)
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 3 cups Corn Flakes
- 1 large box WONKA™ Rainbow Nerds
- Combine peanut butter, corn syrup, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir until well-mixed.
- Turn the burner to medium heat. Stir frequently until the mixture is bubbling. DO NOT allow this mixture to boil for more than 30 seconds!
- Remove from heat.
- Fold in the Corn Flakes and the Rainbow Nerds, mixing well.
- When the mixture is cool enough to handle, form it into balls.
- Eat and enjoy!
