Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Buried Treasure Cups

I made these for my son when he wanted a pirate birthday party. He had these for a snack before the party began.  He had lots of fun "digging" up the buried treasure (aka, chocolate gold coin). Buried Treasure Cups are easy to make and with candy and fruit how can you go wrong?

You will need:
  • Clear cups (plastic cups work best with younger kids)
  • Chocolate gold coins (1 per cup)
  • Fruit: strawberry slices, clementines, grapes, banana slices, blueberries, raspberries, melon balls, whatever you enjoy
  • Whipped cream
  • M&M', other small candies, or sprinkles

1. Place the chocolate gold coin in the bottom of a clear cup. 
2. Next, layer strawberries, clementines, grapes, and banana slices. 
3. Top it with whipped cream and a sprinkle of M&M's.
4. Enjoy!

HINT: Tomorrow (9/19/12) is International Talk Like A Pirate Day! These would be a great snack to serve. Come back for more pirate activities tomorrow!
