One thing you always pack for a sleepover is your sweet tooth! Learn how to make new desserts for your next girls' night in, with our Snoozy Snack recipes, below!

Cozy in Bed

Graham crackers
Snack cakes
Large marshmallows
Fruit snacks (the rolled up sheets)
Peach, black, brown frosting

Take a graham cracker and place a long snack cake on top of it. Use your melted marshmallow to secure it in place. Then, stick a marshmallow at the top of the cracker – this will be the pillow and face. Next, use frosting to create a face, hair and some makeup. Wrap it up in a fruit snack to create a blanket, and you have a Cozy in Bed snack!

Eye Mask Cookies

1 pack of store-bought sugar cookie dough
Flour, for rolling dough
Licorice strings

Roll out dough and use a circular cookie cutter to create 2 circles. Mold them together into an eye mask shape. (Note: you can also draw a template on paper and use that to shape the dough.) Then, use a straw to poke one hole on each side of the mask. Bake cookies according to the package instructions. Once cooled, pull red licorice strings through the holes to create a mask tie. Finally, use frosting to decorate the cookies!

Sweet Slippers

1 package of peanut shaped cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon table salt
1 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
20 oz of candy melts (any color you’d like)
Colorful sprinkles (any color you’d like)

Take the peanut butter cookies, split them apart and scrape off any inside filling. In a bowl, combine peanut butter, whipping cream, butter and salt, and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, microwave for another 20 seconds, then stir again. Continue heating up in 10 second intervals and stirring until the butter is melted. Add the powdered sugar and stir in completely.

Take a spoon and scoop a small ball on top of one of the open-faced cookies, and use your thumb to form the foot hole in the slipper. Take the candy melts and split them into two groups: a half cup and 2 cups. With the half cup of melts, grate them up into small pieces. Melt up 2 cups of the candy melts, and use a paintbrush to brush the melted candy on the top of the slipper. Then, sprinkle the grated candy on top of the slipper and let cool before eating. For a blinged-out slipper, use sparkly sprinkles!

Are Barbers Qualified to Give Mental Health Advice?

Barber shops are often seen as safe spaces for men, especially given the uptick of social injustice over the years — so much so that some men have found it therapeutic to vent and discuss their mental health. Do you support this type of unique therapy or should matters of the mental health be strictly in the hands of professionals?
