The BEST treat on a sick day!


Well, I think we may be over our last (hopefully last) cold of the season.  I say that because how could we possibly all get sick again?!  Enough is enough!  With that said, I'm wrapping up my last post for a three part series program for Children's Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold.  As part of this program I've shared some tips on how I keep my children somewhat smiling on sick days as well as how to survive this cold and flu season.  So many of you have shared as well and I've enjoyed reading all the fun and sweet things you do with your children to make them feel just a little bit better on those sick days. 

On my last post I shared a yummy recipe for cookies that Ainsley and I made while she was at home and not feeling well.  I highly recommend you try the recipe-really, really good!  But I think my kids all time favorite treat whether they're sick or not (but it really helps when they're sick-although not with some stomach thing is RED VELVET CUPCAKES!  

Do I have some magical recipe?  Nope.  Just the ones from the box but you must use cream cheese icing!  

Of course it's always fun to make these around Valentines Day as well!

Yes, these make my kids happy!  And let's face it, it's not easy staying home with sick kids.  It wears you out as well but I promise this little treat will make you happy too!
   
I like to use this fun little tool to make my cupcakes look somewhat professional and the kids are totally impressed 

So while Children's Mucinex helps the kids with their congestion, runny noses, and cough, the red velvet cupcakes help to really put a smile on their face  

One reader commented that she likes to make vitamin c smoothies with her child-great idea!  I would love the recipe!!  Much healthier than my red velvet cupcakes!
