Family Home Evening Treats
Here are some yummy treats for FHE. Some are to make with the family during FHE  and some are make ahead, but all are very simple and fun for kids with adult supervision.

 

 I planted a cherry tree 15 years ago when we first moved into our house and the 4th season I got my first cherry. Only one. On Sunday I went out it was just about ready to eat so I decided to cut it up into 4 pieces for our treat for family night. I planned a very eventful and organized ritual for the eating of this deep, red morsel. We got a plate a knife and marched out, in single file, for our harvest...

Take the biscuits out of the can and cut out the center of each biscuit. Fry donuts and holes in oil until golden brown. Drain on wire rack or cookie cooling rack. Top with glaze.

After FHE serve.

Fondue Fun - Fondue is a really fun and yummy treat for FHE. If you don't have a fondue pot you can use a crock pot or something like a crock pot, on low heat. You can have either cheese fondue and dip bread chunks and veggies in it or have the obvious chocolate fondue, (either brown or white chocolate) and dip fruits and sponge cake chunks into that one. It's easy, inexpensive and fun! - Laura S.

Rice Crispy Treats - Take rice crispies and turn them into fun!!! Add food coloring for each season of the year or for any special occasion.

Nachos - Put corn chips on a cookie sheet and put on shredded cheese we like the four cheese blend the broil in the oven until the cheese is melted. don't bake it too long! hard cheese is not very good.

Banana Malts - First get a few bananas. (Buy more if you have a big family) Then, buy malt mix. Get some ice. Put all of these things into a blender, little by little. ENJOY!!!!!!! - Lindsay

Kid-Proof Sushi - To make kid proof sushi you must have fruit roll ups, a gummy bear and rice crispies, you can use store brand or homemade.

Take a gummy and put it laying on 1 end of the crispy, then roll the crispy and eat it! - Alyssa Lumley

Colored Thick Shake - Ingredients: Vanilla ice cream, food coloring (all different colors), vanilla, milk, and whip cream.

Place the dough/batter on a cookie sheet and cook for app. 10 minutes, (the back of the box should say exactly.) After the cookies are cooked and cooled, spread vanilla frosting on the flat side of each cookie and place to together!!!! ENJOY! - Brighton

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars - a make ahead treat, which requires no baking.

Milk Shakes - Just some ice cream and milk in a blender make a great milk shake. Our favorite is vanilla ice-cream, milk and Hershey's chocolate syrup. If you want a faster shake, stir with a spoon instead of using a blender. Not as smooth, but still tastes great!

S'mores -  Melt a marshmallow and place it with a chocolate bar  between graham crackers . Do it quickly so the chocolate bar melts.

Temple Cookies - (great after doing a lesson on Temples) Roll out sugar cookie dough. Each person try and make the best temple shape they can. Use butter knives or whatever tools you think would work best. Bake as directed on recipe.

Candy Bar Board: (good for a Charity or Service lesson) Make a poster board with a thought on it which applies to your lesson. Use candy bars in place of the words, use them for the family night treat when you are done.

Hot Chocolate or Hot Apple Cider - Perfect for a cold Family night

Carmel Apples - Put popsicle sticks in each apple, make sure the apples aren't too sweet. Sour ones work best. Slow cook Kraft caramels and dip the apples in. cover with nuts or chocolate chips if you like. Put on wax paper and let cool. Put  them in refrigerator to harden
