Spaghetti-and-Meatball Cupcakes

Most kids already eat spaghetti with their fingers, so they'll have no trouble gobbling up Bake at 350's "marinara"-covered cupcakes [9].

PB and Banana Hot Dog

Saucy Mommy doesn't skip the condiments on these sweet dogs [17]. Use strawberry preserves and orange marmalade as the ketchup and mustard, respectively.

Cookie Dough Dip

If your little one likes to sneak bites of raw cookie dough, then they'll love FamilyFun's faux dough [23]. Made from chickpeas and peanut butter, this version is just as sweet and won't give your kids salmonella!

Crackers and Cheese Tease

This may look like a platter of cheese and crackers [25], but in reality, FamilyFun's recipe is made from vanilla cookies, icing, and fruit chews!
