After School Snacks for Back to School!


after school snacks I can’t believe that school is going to be starting so soon, I know some states it may have already started! My birthday is the 12th of August so when I was little I would pray my birthday would get here. Then at the same time dread it as I knew school would start shortly after! Haha, I wasn’t the biggest fan of school as I was afraid of all the germs, so there was tears, more tears and then a few more!

I thought it could be fun do to a roundup post of after school snacks that are inspired by Back to School! These snacks would be a great treat for your kid/kids, or even a fun lunch idea to pack to go along with the rest of their lunch!

3. Start out with a layer of Cool Whip on the bottom. If you prefer more JELL-O pudding you can start with that as the bottom layer. It really isn’t set in stone what you have to start with.

4. Next you want to place some of the pound cake and strawberries on top of the Cool Whip. Add as much as you would like, just leave some room to add more layers.

I found, it is best to make these right before you serve them. The pound cake will get soggy as it sits. So I just keep the ingredients separate and right before you are ready to serve, you can go assemble them.

You can also use any flavor JELL-O Pudding you would like, I just love the idea of the cheesecake flavor, because I am a huge fan! You could even toss in some other different berries if you have those on hand as well!
