Toddler Treats: Choccy Stuffed Raspberries

Treats bannerI missed last weeks Toddler treats! So sorry for that but I have been insanely flat out, however this week I’m back and have a delicious little number for you guys and this one is another ‘treat for everyone’ idea!

Everyone bar myself & my youngest boy loves berries however raspberries is something I hadn’t given to Annabelle since she was wee and I was baffled why not! So I figured I’d offer them to her again and see if her love for them still bloomed. My local green grocer didn’t have any in stock as did you know once they are brought in fresh they don’t keep for very long? News to me, however I was lucky to get a bag of frozen raspberries in my local Spar.
rasp1I thought popping a little chocolate chip into the centre was a cute touch and makes the fruity treat extra yummy-ness! Plus I hear raspberries & chocolate go together like ice-cream & hot fudge. They were made for each other.
rasp2 rasp3All you need for this is two very simple ingredients and that is raspberries and chocolate chips. This could not be any more simple and easy to put together and Annabelle absolutely destroyed the bowl I put in front of her!
rasp4Before giving them to my hungry little toddler I popped one of her older brothers tops onto her and silly me, put her in white that day and we all know raspberries like to bleed!
rasp6Saying she loved them is an understatement! 

I do hope you liked it and decide to have a go at making it yourself. If you do I’d love for you to hashtag #ToddlerTreats over on Twitter and tag me in, I’d love to see your dishes! Also if you missed previous weeks, they can all be found on my Toddler Treats page right here on the blog or you can pop over to my Pinterest board.

See you next week for more yummy treats!!

#MMWBHHello you beautiful bunch of bloggers you!

If this is your first week finding us then WELCOME! And of course if you’re a regular, thank you so much for coming back week after week to link up your amazing posts with the MMWBH!

Last week we had a great selection of posts – thanks to everyone who linked up and who comes back week after week too link up again! I love you guys!

This last week I’ve been so stupidly busy that I have had time to do nothing ‘blog-wise’…for example, my last weeks toddler treats wasn’t even done because I seriously need more hours in the day right now. It may be the time of year where everything seems to move faster than you want it too…meaning you have zero control over it all and before you know it a week has passed and not a single thing has been ticked off your to-do list in that time! GAH!

However this week I have been able to have a ruddy-good de-clutter fest, move a few things around {getting prepared for the Christmas tree!} and get a few free Printables pumped out for you guys who are taking part in this years Elf on a Shelf mischievous-ness!
Message cardsI also did a post giving you some North Pole Breakfast ideas for the morning of December 1st. I cannot wait to have the treat of peppermint topped doughnuts and chocolate milk for breakfast!
north pole1I also put together a fun Homemade Christmas Linky for you to link up everything you have made, baked, crafted that is Christmassy! So feel free to link up as many times as you like, the linky is live until the evening of Christmas day!
Xmas bannerPlease remember no giveaways or other linkys to be linked up please. Also feel free to link up two posts if you want too – OLD & NEW posts welcome, everything from crafts, reviews, photo round ups and more! And don’t forget to link up with the URL to your chosen post rather than just your blog URL as these will be deleted. Sorry to be a linky Nazi!

I do try to make it round everyone, leave a wee comment and give you guys a wee shout out on twitter too! I’ve been held back from my PC this last week so I will make it round everyones posts from last week! Joys of having a toddler who no longer naps when she used too!

If you do link up please drop me a wee comment to let me know, I love a wee comment so I do! During the course of the week I’ll pop round each of you, comment, tweet & give you a little google+ shout-out too. Because I’m lovely like that! You don’t need to make it round everybody! But sharing the love with a few is all that’s really needed! xx

Please feel free to grab the badge and add it to your blog post :)

My Beebies Baby Store Wish List

As well as being a Beebies Ambassador for the better part of a year I also adore the store and everything it offers with its amazing across the board range of products. So I figured with Christmas sneaking up on us I’d share with you a little Beebies Christmas Wishlist of my own with my little toddler in mind.
beebies wish listThe first item on my Beebies wishlist is this adorable set of Wooden Animal Skittles they are so cute & colourful that I know my Annabelle would enjoy playing with them. Her older Brothers and Sister would teach her of course but surely that would be the most magical part! RRP £18.99.

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a little one is a super cute & festive outfit and I am in love with this Christmas #Elfie pyjama set! RRP £14.00.

Annabelle has a great love for shape sorters at the moment so once I saw this super cute Shape sorter Bus. I can see her sitting with this for a good while each time it’s out for play and who doesn’t love a toy with educational value too! RRP. £11.99.

Speaking of educational toys I love the new range of wooden puzzle toys that Beebies Baby Store has added recently and this One to Four sorter really stands out for me. This has everything from colour sorting, number learning and even fine motor skills! Something I know Belle would really love to unwrap on Christmas morning. RRP £18.99

Lastly ever since I say this gorgeous Deluxe Wooden Easel I knew Belle would love standing at it to make whatever artistic creation came to her mind! It includes everything you need from anti-spill paint cups, paper dispenser and handy little trays to store your artsy bits & pieces. RRP £99.99.

So that’s my Beebies Christmas wishlist! Looking through the website, do you have a wishlist that you’d like to share? #AVeryBeebiesChristmas

Tesco is urging its customers in Northern Ireland to get ‘Appy with its brand new next generation Clubcard app.

Tesco is leading the digital revolution in shopping as one of the first supermarkets  in the UK to introduce paperless discount coupons as part of a response to customers’ demands – so no more bulky paper coupons cluttering up your purse or wallet. And the great news is Northern Ireland is the first region in the UK to be able to download the next generation app.The updated app, which is available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play, takes the strain out of the weekly shop while keeping a tally of Clubcard points, fuel savings and discounts.

Now shoppers never have to lose out on all-important money-saving offers with discounts to slash grocery bills at their fingertips.
The high-tech app has a host of features which are tailored around each individual shopper, including a ‘create your own shopping list’ component meaning you spend less time on the weekly shop. Tesco customers can tick items off a list as they move round the aisles and tap on which money-saving offers they want to use thanks to the new app. They can email or text the list to another family member or friend to ensure they’ve got everything they need as well.

The app keeps a tally of Clubcard points and fuel savings, as well as the top offers at each local store. Customers can even fine-tune their shop by searching for a discounted price on a specific product simply by entering one word – it really is that simple.

The new generation app means Northern Ireland shoppers can use their Clubcard even if they’ve left it at home as the app means the Clubcard is right in their pocket. Checking points, cashing in money-saving coupons at the till all add up to an ‘Appy way to shop at Tesco.
