Hello Mess for Less readers! My name is Amanda and I’m excited to be here today sharing a fun cooking activity you can do with your kids. I am a 2nd grade teacher with two young children, a three-year-old daughter and 3-month-old son. Over on my blog, This Mom’s Happy Life, you can find easy recipes, money-saving ideas and crafts for kids. Today I’m sharing a recipe that toddlers, preschoolers or older kids can help you create.
Cooking with Kids—Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Crescents
My daughter loves to help me cook in the kitchen. She started helping me with cooking when she turned 2 and now, at 3, is very good at stirring, adding ingredients and even cracking eggs. Today’s recipe is very easy and even very young children should be able to help with this.You will need:
1 tube of crescent rolls, peanut butter, mini chocolate chips and chocolate syrup
Begin by unrolling crescent rolls and spreading peanut butter over each. Older kids can use a butter knife to do this. For younger kids, I would offer the backside of a spoon to spread the peanut butter.
Sprinkle mini chocolate chips over top of peanut butter.
Starting with the fat end of the crescent, roll up each triangle.
Place on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 11-13 minutes.
Top with chocolate syrup and enjoy!
