What are you like when you’re hungry? I don’t know about you, but when I’m hungry, I’m not myself! I can get grumpy, irritable, impatient, and not so fun to be around… In fact, as many of you know, I’m currently rehearsing for a certain musical, and, well, it got me to thinking that when I’m hungry, I can be kind of like our lead character…


Yep. I might be little, but I can be downright ogre-y when I’m hungry enough. Just ask Little Crafter or the hubby! That’s why it’s always a good idea for me to have a snack on hand, especially during long all-day rehearsals to keep me going and feeling like myself.


It’s easy to toss a SNICKERS® bar in my bag along with my script and several pairs of dance shoes to ensure that there’s only one ogre on the stage {and it’s not me}! My current favorite is the Peanut Butter Squares, but I don’t think you can really go wrong with SNICKERS®, right? And as yummy as they are on their own, they’re delicious in recipes too, like this one I created with our play in mind.

Even if you’ve never seen the musical, you probably remember the part from the movie where Shrek and Donkey talk about ogres having layers. Shrek insists that ogres are like onions, while Donkey would rather compare them to a delicious parfait! I thought it would be the perfect time to come up with a tasty and super-simple “swamp parfait”…take a look.


SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Squares
Chocolate Pudding
Crushed Shortbread Cookies
M&M’s® Candies
Chocolate Syrup
Whipped Cream {optional}

Step 1: Cut each SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Square into six pieces.


Step 2: Place several large spoonfuls of chocolate pudding in the bottom of a glass. Sprinkle a layer of crushed shortbread cookies on top. Then, add a layer of the SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Square pieces along with some M&M’s® candies {I used brown and green for an ogre-y, swampy feel!}.


Step 3: Continue layering your ingredients in the same way two more times, or whatever fits in your glass! I topped off my final layer by adding a drizzle of chocolate syrup for good measure. You can also add whipped cream if you like. I didn’t happen to have any and I was ready to dig right in to those Peanut Butter Squares anyway!


There you have it! A fancy parfait, complete with layers and all kinds of chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness! Even your inner ogre is sure to approve!


And once you’ve enjoyed it, you’ll be back to feeling like your old self again. Ahhh. Thanks, SNICKERS®!

  1. Oh yes! I’m definitely full of layers when I’m hungry – and they’re not all good! Love the way SNICKERS® can help me be myself again!

  2. This sounds so amazing. I’ve always been a huge Snickers fan anyhow, but this looks even more fun. Thinking I may have to go shopping soon. 🙂
