Kids in the Kitchen

As I whipped up a batch of brownies today, my little one was desperate to help. I love that my kids want to get in on baking, cooking, measuring, and the all-important tasting. Keeping a box of something handy is a great way to get that aroma of the holidays to fill your home – and to engage with your child in a meaningful way. Which is why I thought it to be providential that this weekends JBF Corporate Blog had a post about making cookies with your kids. Enjoy – in more ways than one!

• 1 Box of White Cake Mix
• 1/3 Cup Oil
• 2 Eggs
• 2 Tbs Sprinkles
• 1 Cup mini M&Ms

• Preheat oven to 350º F.
• Instead of following the instruction on the cake mix box combine the dry cake mix powder, 1/3 cup oil and 2 eggs together.
• Stir with a SPOON until it’s thoroughly moist.
• Add the sprinkles to the cake batter and mix together.
• Shape dough into 1″ balls. Place them about 2″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
• With the bottom of a glass dipped in flour, flatten to approximately 1/4″ thick.
• Gently press a bunch of mini M&Ms on top of each cookie.
• Bake them at 350º F for 7 to 8 minutes. Do not overcook them; they will get harder as they dry.

I promise these will be your kids new favorite holiday treat. They will be asking for them even when the holiday season is over.
