After School Snacking’ with Hot Pockets

I’m counting down the days until the kids head back to school for what I’m sure will be another exciting year! 21 days to be exact.

Between the after school activities, sports, and band (band is HUGE here) the kids will be busy and of course hungry. With lunch around 11am for the kids and then they get out a couple of hours later the first thing that they do when they get home is to start rummaging through the fridge & pantry. I get the inevitable question soon after… What can I eat mom?

Hot Pockets on the table

Hot Pockets are the perfect after school snack (or lunch if you can talk a teacher into letting you use their microwave) because they’re small but just enough to tide the kids over until dinner time a few hours later. So to get ready for back to school I headed to Walmart to pick up some groceries, a few back to school supplies, and of course Hot Pockets!

My kids LOVE Hot Pockets though and as soon as they see that I bought them they disappear quickly! And with so many varieties I doubt that they’ll ever get bored with them! I think that within 3 days of buying them they ate 3 boxes… lunch every day was Hot Pockets.

Hot Pockets Sloppy Joes

What I love is how fast & simple they are! Grab a box out of the freezer and pop ’em in the microwave for a minute or two and then eat them! They’re so simple that even my 10 year old has them all figured out and is making them for herself when she wants one. We picked up the sloppy joe Hot Pockets and it’s been her favorite all week!

Spinach & Cheese Hot Pocket

That one right there…. yea, that picture just above…. that one is my favorite one! It’s like warm, cheesy spinach dip wrapped up in a delicious pretzel roll. This one is almost to good to share with the kids!

Ham & Cheese Hot Pockets

Plain old ham & cheese…. that what my husband like. No taste adventure there!
