Toaster Strudel

The perfect post-sleepover breakfast treat, we never argued about the best way to frost ‘em. Never. If you could never have enough icing, go all out and add ice cream and caramel sauce for a breakfast-for-dessert (or is it the other way around?) combo that will delight your inner child.

Pudding Pops

Speaking of cool, it’s a total bummer that the chill treat of your youth is no longer in the freezer aisle. The good news is you can whip up a tasty DIY version with bananas and better-for-you yogurt. Because, sigh, you’re an adult now.

Fruit Snacks

If childhood you was going to sneak one treat into the grocery cart, it was probably Fruit by the Foot or Gushers. You can admit it… now. Embrace the always fun-to-eat treats with a crafty snack that tastes as good as it looks.
