Candy Race Car – Great for Kids Parties

It is hard coming up with something for a classroom treat for holidays or for a child’s party. My son, Spencer loves taking something for his friends at school.

This treat isn’t healthy but it is easy to make and your kids will love it!

Candy Race Car- Great for Kids Parties

First you will need a glue gun, glue sticks (both I purchased at the dollar store.), mini Hershey chocolate bars, Tootsie rolls, chocolate coins and juice boxes.

You can also change it up. If you want instead of Tootsie Rolls, try a chocolate that is small like one to use for the front fender. You can choose a different small chocolate bar too. The sky is the limit on how you design yours.  Choose a juice box that is your child’s favourite.

I found mints in a wrapper didn’t give the same effect as a chocolate coin did for the wheel look. And the Hershey chocolate bar did look like it was a wing with the side flaps of the package.

Candy Race Car- Great for Kids Parties

Figure out how many cars that you wish to make and decide on the amount of items you need.  For one car you need one Hershey chocolate bar, one Tootsie roll , four chocolate coins and one juice box.

Just put a dab of glue on each coin and apply it to the juice box sides. Then put glue on the Tootsie roll and place it where the front of the car is located. Lastly put glue on the bottom of the Hershey chocolate bar and place it on the top back area of the race car.

It is that simple. And your kids will love the race cars for themselves and their friends!

Let me know if you make this for your child’s class or birthday parties in the comments below. I love hearing about how the kids enjoyed them.

Spaghetti Bake Recipe



Spaghetti Bake Recipe #FreezerMeals #Spaghetti #Recipe #EasyToMake #Foodie #FoodBlog


I once had a Australian friend tell me she was having over a few people for dinner and had no idea what to make them.

I gave her this recipe and she made two of them up for her friends. She loved it.

I do this recipe often for freezer cooking because I can make 2 or 3 of these at once and it doesn’t break the bank. It also freezes well.


Spaghetti Bake Recipe
Save Recipe


  • 1lb Ground Beef/Turkey or Chicken
  • 2 Jars of Spaghetti Sauce
  • 2 Sweet Pepper (diced)
  • 2 Tomato optional or use a can of diced tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 can or fresh mushrooms optional (sliced)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (I use marble)
  • 1 package of spaghetti noodles (I use whole wheat or vegetable noodles.)


  1. Cook meat in frying pan until brown on medium heat.
  2. add any seasoning (I add onion powder, parsley and Mrs. Dash Taco Seasoning)
  3. place vegetables in with the ground beef once it is browned.
  4. cook for a few minutes on medium heat.
  5. Add spaghetti sauce
  6. heat sauce with ground beef and vegetables for 5 mins
  7. In a big pot boil water for spaghetti noodles
  8. Add noodles once water is boiled
  9. Cook for 10 mins
  10. Drain water from pot
  11. Take a roasting pan and place sauce mixture at bottom. (small layer)
  12. Add noodles to top of mixture
  13. Place rest of sauce on top
  14. Add Shredded cheese (covering meat mixture)
  15. Heat at 350 o F for 15 mins or until cheese is melted
  16. *** If you are using for freezer meal. Don't cook in oven until you are using it for a meal. Just wrap pan in aluminum foil. Mark the top so you know when and what it is and then place in fridge to cool down before placing in freezer. You will need to cook it without the cheese. Then add the cheese the last 10 minutes. Cook at 350oF for 35 minutes. (stir a few times to make sure it is thawed.) then add cheese.
