Labor Day Themed Treats

dessert

With Labor Day on the horizon, it’s time to start planning your family’s celebration. If that includes a backyard barbeque or park-side picnic, check out these fun kid-friendly recipes that all have to do with the theme of the day — labor!

Construction Sundae

You’ve heard of a dirt sundae. But what about a construction dessert? Add a layer of dirt/soil to the top of ice cream by crushing a mix of chocolate cookies and graham crackers. Place a small-sized toy construction truck or a construction-themed cake topper on the dirt.

Firefighter Cup

Cut the base of a cupcake to fit the bottom of a clear plastic cup (use a cookie cutter). Cover the top of the cake with vanilla icing. Put the cake in the cup and poke sliced licorice pieces on top. Choose red, orange and yellow licorice to create the illusion of fire. Serve the cake cups with a side of blue gelatin “water.”

Career Cookies

Decorate plain sugar cookies to look like tools that different types of workers use. Add licorice strands to create a doctor’s stethoscope, combine rectangle-shaped cookies to make a construction worker’s hammer or frost long thin cookies to make them look like a teacher’s pencil.
