Cettera's Candy Factory Tour

We spent our last day of Summer Vacation doing one of our summertime favorites, a visit to Cerreta’s Candy Co. in Glendale. Cerreta’s Candy Co is a working factory in downtown Glendale, AZ that produces a variety of candy though their specialty is chocolate! During the week, they offer free tours and we’ve been going on these tours for years! When the kids said they wanted to go, I was delighted that they didn’t think they were too old to go and make chocolate pizzas, the best part of the tour!

Jello Fireworks ~ A kid friendly treat perfect for parties and BBQs!

It’s 4th of July weekend and for Clever Guy Friday we are bringing you an easy treat that kids can help make! These treats are perfect for a party or BBQ. Of course kids will love them because they are full of plenty of sugar!

Jello Fireworks


These treats are simple to make and only involve a few ingredients!

Jello Fireworks

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Jello box
  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 1 cup of cold water
  • Blue cotton candy
  • Red & blue pop rocks
  • Plastic cups

How to:

Take a Pyrex dish and line it with the plastic cups. In a large bowl, pour in the gelatin mix then dissolve with the hot water. Once the gelatin has dissolved, pour in the cold water. Pour the Jello mixture in each of the cups and refrigerate for approximately 2 hours. Once solidified, top with cotton candy then with Pop Rocks on the top.

Leave the jello in cups in the refrigerator without the toppings until ready to serve. After prepared, serve immediately otherwise the pop rocks and cotton candy will melt into the cups.

Disney Inspired Mickey Mouse Rice Krispies ~ Perfect for a birthday party!

Today is a very special day as we are celebrating Clever Guy’s birthday! It’s hard to believe that 11 years ago today he was just a tiny little thing. Today we are sharing what he took to school for his birthday treat. After our Disney World visit, we were feeling reminiscent and wanted to share something Disney related. Together we created these Mickey Mouse Rice Krispies and actually set it up as a make your own rice krispies treat party! This would be great for a birthday party or even just a fun Disney party!


The inspiration actually came from Goofy’s in Downtown Disney where kids (and hey adults too) can put in an order for a fun rice krispies treat complete with the fun toppings they choose! They actually get to fill out a checklist which was really fun for Clever Guy.

This rice krispies bar area was complete with:

  • Melted chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  • Crushed oreos
  • Mini & regular chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips
  • Marshmallows
  • Coconut
  • Reese’s Pieces


This way the kids could make theirs however they wanted to!


I used this cookie cutter from Amazon along with this sandwich cutter.

For fun we put them on straw sticks so they could eat them without getting their hands terribly messy. This worked well with the stronger paper straws.

Visting Vulture Mine AZ

This weekend we took a trip to Vulture Mine or Vulture City just west of Wickenburg, AZ. It’s about an hour and a half drive from Phoenix. This is an abandoned town that is no longer in use for anything other than preservation and tours. The mine however is in working order and products several ounces of gold each week. We left early in the morning to take this adventure before it became too hot.

When we got there we were greeted by our tour guide Norm. He was very thorough in his presentation of his tour. He explained that some of the things that are written online about the town actually weren’t documented as accurate. We learned  about the mine being discovered, the equipment they used and the stories of when people lived there. Everything we saw on the tour was items they had discovered after the town was abandoned and many buildings were still in tact. We loved seeing the old buildings items that were used in the housing and mining procedures.

Below are the photos of our tour:
