When the schedule of back to school has gotten a little hectic take a little break. This weekend plan a tie -dye party and let the kids and the adults get a little messy and creative at the same time. Once you have all of your steps check off in planning the Tie Dye Day Party, now it’s time to plan for food. What kind of food do you serve at a Tie Dye Theme Party?
1. Rainbow sponge cake: Simply prepare a boxed yellow cake mix using the box instructions. While baking – mix various colors of Jello, each into separate bowls. Mix with warm water to dissolve. Then, poke holes through the cake with a toothpick and pour each color into a different area of the cake allowing some colors to overlap. Ice when cool.
2. Tie Dye Fudge. Melt (1 ) 8 oz. container of ready made cake icing with 1 oz. bag of chocolate chips. Mix occasionally until smooth. Divide into 3 different bowls and add food coloring. Next, spray a lined pan with non-stick spray and layer one at a time each color of icing mix. Then using a knife swirl the colors to achieve the Tie Dye look. Refrigerate 2 hours or until hardened. Cut into squares.
3. Fruit Kebobs. Cut up lots of colorful fruit and add a marshmallow between each piece of fruit on the kebob.
4. Trix Krispy Treats – Using the same recipe as you would for a Rice Krispy Treat. Mix Trix or Fruity Pebbles, or any multi-colored cereal, with butter and melted marshmallows. Layer in a pan sprayed with non-stick spray.
