Iron Chef Challenge for cubs

I was thinking of doing an Iron Chef type challenge for cubs one night to look at Canada's food guide.

I was thinking of using a couple of "secret ingredients" like fruit, cream cheese and pitas for fruit pitas, or whatever they can come up with. But I thought that you guys might have some thoughts.

Any thoughts on no bake/no cook, easy quick, no peanut butter (everything quick, easy and no cook or bake has pb in it :( that I can find)

Swamp Cookies

We have just finished up our end of year shindig. We made these cookies for desert and I thought that you guys might wanna "borrow" the recipes. We made lily pads and mud cookies. They stay soft and yummy even when cooled.

The Recipe for the cookies is here: For the lily pads substitute a white cake mix and some green food colourings

As soon as they came out of the oven we lightly pressed a gummy frog on top of the lily pad cookies or half of a gummy worm coming out of the middle of the chocolate ones. The heat of the cookies is enough to just melt the gummys to attach to the cookies

Found in the paper a couple of days ago. Thought that I would share!

With the past couple of years full of school shootings the issues of gun use is a touchy one. IMHO teaching youth about gun safety and shooting pellet guns at targets is not giving them a licence to kill. A little knowledge never hurt anyone. I don't know.
