If you're like me, you want your child to be involved in the many things you do in your home. Sometimes that's playing, doing laundry or baking, among other things, of course. I love getting Ella to try new things and in today's case, we tried a brother to the rice crispy bar, peanut butter cheerio bars. These are a great way to get your child to "help" in the kitchen without the messy ingredients like flour and sugar. Ella was delighted to participate and even tested out the ingredients during the making of the bars to ensure they were quality products. Ha. Like mother, like daughter, eh?
|Here is my little helper, Ella Jane|
|I started off this dessert by melting two tablespoons of butter.|
|Next, I added 1/3 of a cup of peanut butter.|
|Now, as I was doing that, Ella was helping to taste test the mallows. Verdict: delicious!|
|Ella and I then added about 40 large marshmallows to the butter and peanut butter. Counting was fun!|
|Look at that concentration!|
|Mixing up nicely...|
|Now the cheerios. The cheerios we used were multi grain peanut butter cheerios. (a new item on the market)|
|Finally, we topped off the bars with some chocolate chips. A very nice addition, indeed!|
|Ella smiled about the whole process! Yum!|
Now that's a fun and easy dessert to make with your little helper. Plus, there is no need to turn on the oven, which is an added bonus during this 100 degree weather. Let us know what you like to make with your little ones. We'd love to hear from you!
