Candy Bar Race Cars - 52 Snacks for Children's Church

Pin It Now!

It's time to get ready for children;s Church again.

A few weeks ago my wife was put in charge of a year's worth of snacks for our Children's Church.

Which means I was assigned by the big boss upstairs (my wife) to actually do the snacks.

Love these little guys as did all of the kids!  WHAT's NOT TO LOVE!

And easy easy easy!

See you in Church!

Keep scrolling down for this easy to follow recipe...

 OK... Here's what I did...

Candy Bar Race Cars

  • 24 Mini Candy Bars (Mini Snickers or Milky Way)
  • 96 M&M's
  • 1/2 Cup Frosting (Canned works fine or make your own... The frosting acts as glue)
  • 24 Animal Crackers, Cut off heads and torso
Cooking Directions
  1. Pretty much self explanatory from the photos... Lay out your candy bars, separate the M&Ms (by color or just random), prepare your frosting.
  2. I like to use a piping bag with a medium small tip. But you can also use a toothpick.
  3. Glob of frosting, secure a wheel, repeat.
  4. Same with the animal crackers. I have also seen this done with those Honey Graham bears.
  5. Serve chilled and ENJOY!


This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
