Teddy Bear Toast

Teddy Bear Toast

Do you know what is totally cute and totally easy to make??

Teddy Bear Toast!

It’s just a few ingredients and only takes a couple of minutes, so whether you serve it as a snack or part of a meal, you are sure to have some excited kiddos.

I toasted the bread instead of using un-toasted bread because it makes it easier to spread the peanut butter.  Less chance of the bread falling apart.

But you don’t have to use peanut butter.  You could use almond butter, nutella, cream cheese (polar bears), or whatever spreadable thing you thing vaguely represents a bear’s fur.

Then press on a banana slice for its ears and snout.  Top that off with two chocolate chips for eyes and a chocolate chip for his nose and you’re done!

I made a tiny hole in the banana slice snout to make that chocolate chip fit a little more snugly, but other than that, you’re pretty much just piling on the goodness.

The other thing is that this is easy for kids to make.  I usually just serve it up, but you could get your kids involved in the kitchen by letting them make their own bears.

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar

I recently realized that I use a lot of cinnamon sugar.

It’s something I’ve used forever.  My mom often made me Cinnamon Toast (buttered toast sprinkled with cinnamon sugar) when I was a kid, and I still make it today, both for my daughters and for myself.

And I’ve been using it with various recipes quite a bit, so I decided to go ahead and dedicate a blog post to it.

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar

You can buy ready-made cinnamon sugar in the spice aisle at the supermarket, but I just can’t see the sense in that because it’s so overpriced and so easy to make.

In the above photo you see my tools:  cinnamon, sugar, and a container to hold it.  I also use the knife to mix it, but my mom just shakes the bottle.  Either way works.

But, to make things official, here’s a recipe:

Cinnamon Sugar

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbs ground cinnamon

Pour ingredients into a jar.  Mix with a knife until well combined, or, if your jar has a lid that seals, you can shake to combine.

As I’ve mentioned, I use this on toast.  I also add it to French Toast.  And apples to make cinnamon apples.  And buttered bagels.  And snickerdoodle cookies.  And baked sweet potatoes.

This list could go on for awhile…

And the stuff stays good pretty much forever.

It’s best to store it in a container that has holes on top, where you can shake it onto the food, but also one that has a cover to keep out dust.  Kinda like this.  Or a regular sugar dispenser, if that’s all you have, but those pour too quickly for my needs.
