It's that time of year again when the summer heat is at its hottest, the electric bills are at their highest, and the air is filled with the excited energy of "back to school" time. The month of August means new haircuts, papers and pens, plastic bins and baggies, new flashy backpacks, and the latest lunch box $10 can offer. While the youthful tastes of today are as ever changing as a Disney channel soap opera, the classics never do. Nowadays, kids drool over fruity fruit rollups riddled with tongue tattoos, and mystery gushers with surprising sour-tastic flavors. But honey has been around since as early as 2100 B.C., and this insect byproduct still continues to impress! Check out these crafty recipes below that make making sweet snacks fun and healthy!
