The boys did some baking! It’s always good to have the boys help out. AND it’s fun to watch skills develop (in the lad) and creativity happen in my man! I just thoroughly enjoy it. 🙂
So the lad made some Sugar Cookies today. He saw how much they made and promptly cut the recipe in half. MOM! We don’t need to eat THAT many cookies!!!!!!! Made dad and I laugh in agreement. 🙂 I decorated half of them, he did the rest. I taught him a couple things to make it easier (like rolling out half the dough at a time)
The other day he made pretzels. VERY easy for a lad to make. Take some milk chocolate, melt it slowly in the microwave, dip the pretzels. I told him what to do and off he went. They turned out a bit more chocolatey than I expected, but it’s all good cause… WE LIKE CHOCOLATE. 🙂
Then Dad found a recipe and said “Think we should try it?” I told him.. “Go ahead, looks good”.
Fudgey Marshmallow Squares.
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup Nutella (or smooth nut butter of choice)
¼ cup salted butter
½ tsp vanilla
¼ cup sweetened flaked coconut
4 cups mini rainbow marshmallows
Line 8” x 8” pan with wax paper, letting the ends hang over the edges. You will use these as handles later.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the chocolate chips, Nutella and butter. Heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool until pan is safely touchable on the bottom but still smooth to stir.
Stir in coconut to combine well. Stir in marshmallows to cover.
Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. Place a sheet of clear wrap over the top and press mixture firmly and evenly down into pan to make an even top.
Chill in refrigerator, covered with the plastic wrap, for at least 3 hours before cutting into squares. Remove from refrigerator just before serving.
Anyways, if you make them… let me know! Take a pic and send it to me. Always good to share eh?
