As I've said before, we are taking this month to really review what we have learned already to give us more time in the kitchen baking & at the table doing crafts leaving the weekends open to get out & "do" the holiday stuff in various parts of California. We have been having a BLAST!!
Today in the kitchen I pulled out my easiest toddler recipe yet & let the crazies go to town. We have named these treats Holiday Pretzel Bites & you literally unwrap Hersey Kisses, place them on pretzels, bake them, & top them with M&Ms. I bought the peppermint kisses because 1. the crazies love peppermint & 2. they look pretty holiday-ish with the white & red! My crazies were master unwrappers & did most of this treat by themselves. While they baked in the oven at 250 degrees for 2 minutes, the crazies counted out the M&Ms & as soon as the timer went off they were placing those things on the kisses. It was a fun & quick treat & we have all enjoyed snacking on them all day long!
D was unwrapping & placing on the kisses
K was triyng to keep up -- everything is a race these days!
D got his hit to push the M&Ms down without burning his wrist
So proud of their own "baking" (aka: melting) skills
