Do you let your kids lick the bowl after you make brownies (or cake, cookies or whatever)?

I do and I have done it my whole life and never got sick from it. I always let my kids. Thats the best part about baking. hahahah

  • Of course. I would feel derelict in my duties if they didn't get to lick the beaters (although I lick the brownie bowl clean before they even realize I'm done with it, teehee).

  • Nope, and I don't either. Never have. It's disgusting.

  • Sometimes I'd rather have the cookie dough than the cookies themselves ;D

    My grandma used to let me "sop the bowl" as she called it. You better believe I "magically" showed up at her house whenever she made cakes! Hahaha.

  • I used to, but NO MORE!! They can get very sick and it can be fatal! I think my little one can enjoy whatever I'm baking after its done.
