When hunger strikes, we may get a bit short and cranky. I have been there plenty of times. Being a mom, I have eaten my fair share of cold meals to make sure the kiddos get fed. However, today I want to share a story about my youngest son.
On Easter weekend, we traveled to my parents’ home. The trip up was fairly uneventful and the kids took their naps as we drove. We arrived about 5 o’clock, and my sons usually eat dinner around 4 o’clock. The youngest was fine as long as the vehicle was moving, but started to make a little noise as we pulled in the drive. We started unloading and got the kids inside the house and my Dad, aka PaPa, was there waiting for us. My oldest son headed to the back room and proceeded to drag out all the toys to play. I put down my youngest son and he was just standing there, checking things out. My husband and I go back out to the vehicle to bring the rest of the luggage into the house.
We get back inside and my youngest is just crying his little heart out. Poor Papa was trying to get him to calm down but nothing was working. Once my husband and I got everything inside, I fixed the little guy a snack and all was well. He went back to Papa and wanted held. I got supper going shortly thereafter and, once fed, he was a happy boy until bed.
So, when we got back to our own home, I decided that PaPa needed a little something to say “Sorry” for how my little guy was when he was hungry. What better way to fight hunger and say sorry than with cupcakes?
So while I was at Dollar General, I picked up some SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Squares and Almond. Pretty easy to find in the candy aisle of the store.
Now time to take these yummy treats and make some cupcakes. These turned out delicious! I just had to taste them to make sure they would be good to ship to PaPa. Plus, I was getting a bit hungry making these delicious treats.
I have shipped cupcakes before but this time we added a bit extra to the package. I put the cupcakes into a nice box made for transporting cupcakes. This box held four cupcakes. It has a nice tray inside to help keep the cupcakes in place as they go through the mail.
Once I got the cupcakes all packed into their box, I printed a little note to add to the top of the box.
Once the cupcake box was placed into the shipping box, I added a few of the of the SNICKERS® Almond and Peanut Butter Squares on top of the box. Now PaPa will be set for when hunger strikes him.
