Throughout February, the Calgary Canucks Junior Hockey community collected snacks and supplies to help ensure there are no hungry kids in Calgary! We are so grateful for their support.
Lindsay from the Calgary Canucks community shares: “The Calgary Canucks are always looking for ways to support local kids and strengthen our community. Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids has given us a great opportunity to partner with them for our annual February Snack Drive. At all of our home games in February we put out a basket to collect snacks and supplies and a jar to collect financial donations. We promote our snack drive using our website, social media, and game day announcements so that everyone knows the types of snacks that are needed. The Calgary Canucks community loves to help out and we love having BB4CK as part of our hockey family!”

We love to make chocolate puffed wheat squares at the BB4CK kitchen! To make these treats you will need:
1 cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
6 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 cup corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
10 cups puffed wheat
Combine butter, corn syrup, brown and white sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan. Heat the saucepan on a stove top, bringing the sugar mixture to a boil.
Mix well and press into a greased pan (9×13 works best for this recipe).
For a springtime twist, form a basket from the completed chocolate puffed wheat mixture using something round, like a 1 or 1/2 cup mixing cup, and fill with chocolate eggs or colourful marshmallows!

Wonderful grade 7 to 12 Clear Water Academy students prepared snacks for kids in their community! The school hosted a snack drive to collect the supplies and then made trail mix bags, snack bags, and decorated beautiful brown bags.

At the downtown BB4CK kitchen, we bake a lot of muffins for Calgary kids! Orange muffins are one of our favourite types of muffins to make. To make orange muffins you will need:
1⁄2 cup Orange Juice
1⁄2 cup Butter
1 3⁄4 cups Flour
3⁄4 cup Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
Preheat the oven to 400 °F and use muffin cups or spray your muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Add the egg and butter to the pureed mixture in the processor. Blend again then pour mixture into a large bowl.
Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl then add all at once to the orange mixture. Stir well.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan, filling each cup about ¾ full.
Bake muffins in 400 °F over for 20 minutes. Let stand in muffin pan for 5 minutes after removing from oven. Enjoy!
