Share Your Sweets: Lunch Box Treats

Share Your Sweets

The Serious Eats community shares their sweet recipes.


Well, lunchtime just got a whole lot more exciting. You're packing your lunchboxes with everything from animal crackers to fruit leather (all homemade of course!) and it sure beats the same old deli takeout. Take a peek at all your lunchbox ready treats in the slideshow above.

This back-to-school business got us thinking about our favorite childhood treats. Do you still make yours? Was it a special bright pink cupcake or your mom's recipe for oatmeal cookies? Tell us about your favorite childhood sweet, shoot us a photo (along with a link to the recipe!) and we'll include it in next week's roundup. Be sure to send it in no later than Tuesday, September 11th so we can include it in next Thursday's Share Your Sweets on September 13th.

If you're new to Share Your Sweets, take a peep at the rules here. A few notes: we can only take one submission per person, so pick your favorite (or the most recent shot) and send it in. Also, Share Your Sweets is just for the folks at home; no pros or companies! If you want to really impress us, crop your photo so it's 610 pixels wide and 458 pixels tall.
