 If you’re like me summer 2012 holds a special place in your heart because the Olympics are in full swing! There is nothing like watching history being made and seeing the world’s best athletes perform at the peak of their game. If you enjoy the Olympics as much as I do you’ll want to share the spirit of the games with your family and friends. With these fun and creative ideas you can throw an affordable and entertaining party full of Olympic spirit! Check out these recipes and go for gold with some Olympic themed snacks! Here are three creative and tasty takes on party food you’ll love.

 

 

(1) Fruit Filled Olympic Rings

For the fruit filled Olympic rings you’ll need:
-Mini Bagels
-Cream cheese
-Blueberries
-Pieces of Pineapple
-Sliced Kiwi
-Grapes
-Sliced Plums
(Or any fruit of your liking really…)

For this simple snack you just cut your mini bagel in half, smear cream cheese on the halved mini bagel, and place pieces of the sliced fruit on their own respective bagel half! This snack is so simple  everyone will love it!

(2) Edible Medals
For the Edible Medals you’ll need:
-Fruit by the Foot
-Golden Oreos
All you have to do is split up the Oreo,  place both ends of the Fruit by the Foot on the cream center, and put the Oreo back together! This treat doubles as a party favor too.

(3) Torch Cupcakes
For the torch cupcakes you’ll need:
-1 Package of dry cake mix
-40 Mini ice cream cones
-4 Cups of vanilla icing
-Orange food coloring
-Yellow food coloring
-Star-tipped pipping bag
Just follow the baking instructions on the boxed cake and instead of putting the batter into cupcake tins, pour it into the ice cream cones. As for the frosting you’ll want to go for the gold! Mix the vanilla frosting with orange and yellow food coloring. Be sure to take your time with this step because you’ll have to guess and check to get just the right hue! Then fill your pipping bag with the golden frosting and top your cupcakes to make a delicious torch! If you want to get even more creative you can design little flags to decorate your torches.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
