Baking as a family can be a lot of fun and a great way to get children familiar with the kitchen. Simple steps will help children learn to follow directions and measuring ingredients will help with math skills. In addition to the educational value, you will have time to grow in your relationship. Children are also more willing to eat the food that they have created, so you may be able to get them to try foods that they normally would not try. Here is a simple, tasty recipe for Marshmallow Peanut Butter Surprise that you and your kids can try at home.
You will need a package of crescent roll dough (found near the dairy section of your grocery store), peanut butter, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. Separate the dough into the 8 pieces that it comes in. Have your child spread the peanut butter over the crescent, add a few chocolate chips, and put the marshmallow in the center. Fold the dough over the marshmallow. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. The fun thing about this tasty treat is that the marshmallow will “disappear” as it cooks. Let it cool and then sit down to enjoy!
