Heading Back To School
My family is officially back into the groove of school, sports, and everything in between. This is technically our 2nd year of public school which means we are still learning about what works for us.
Being a big family means we tend to have a lot of things going on at the same time. Those being the many sports the kids love to play as well the other 1 million things they want to do after school.
Back To School Snacks
As many of you know I have a day job that keeps me busy while the big kids are off in school learning how to be a future doctor, architect, and amazing book writer. Life in our household is busy, busy, busy!
We are seemingly always on the go and need to have our food reflect that. Eating out at restaurants or fast food places is very nice and we strive to have those family dinners at least once a week.
Chocolate Dipped Brownies
To be honest, there is nothing like having a home-cooked meal or something homemade to take with you while you are on the go. It helps keep you centered and helps bring the peace of your loving home with you when you are away sticking to hectic schedules.
My kids love their sweets and let’s face it, I do too. To satisfy my kid’s hungry and humongous sweet tooths I like to pick up some easy-to-make NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Brownies & More with chocolate morsels Baking mix.

Easy Afterschool Snacks
My kids had a huge debate in the store about which brownie mix to get, so we ended up getting both of them. It actually worked out great for my family because we were able to satisfy both of our decadent sweet tooths as well as our peanut butter obsession.
The kids love to wrap them and take them to school for their mid-day snacks. As well as grab and nibble on in the car as we are on our way to the next Tae Kwon Do Class.
Double Boiler Method
With the double broiler method, you will want to grab a medium-sized saucepan and heat up about 1 1/2 cups of water. Once the water starts to boil, reduce the heat to medium/low heat. Using a metal bowl that can sit atop the saucepan. Add in your while or milk chocolate and then stir frequently until the chocolate is completely melted and at a liquid state.
Quickly remove the pot from the saucepan and set it on a heat-safe oven mitt. Do not overheat the chocolate or it will harden and curdle. Once the chocolate has melted, quickly dip your cooled brownies into the chocolate and then set it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
