  • there are lots of recipes on for kids.

    If they are not old enough to use the stove, you can have them help you with the prep work.

    * Ice Cream Sandwiches (1 pack) - I buy the Neapolitan kind
    * Whipped Cream
    * Crushed Malted Milk Balls

    1. Arrange 4 ice cream sandwiches long sides touching on a serving plate.
    2. Squirt an even layer of whipped cream over top.
    3. Scatter with 1/3 cup chopped Malted Milk Balls.
    4. Repeat layers 2 times, garnishing top with a few larger chunks of Malted Milk Balls.
    5. Freeze until firm (6 hours)
    6. May be frozen for up to a week

  • How about a 1, 2, 3, 4 cake? It is simple and once you master the main recipe, you can add all kinds of things to jazz it up and make it your own. Here's the basic recipe:

    1 Cup room temperature butter or margerine
    2 Cups sugar or splenda
    3 Cups sifted ALL PURPOSE flour
    4 Eggs

    1 Cup milk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    preheat oven to 350 F
    Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer, add eggs one at a time. Add flour and milk alternately until creamy. Begin and end with flour. Add vanilla and beat until mixed.
    (now is also the time to add any "extras" if you want) Pour into 3 greased 9X9 backing pans. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
    Yummy and easy!

  • When I make muffins, breads or cakes I just use mixes. One of my sons favorite things to make is English muffin pizzas. I buy English muffins, pizza sauce and mozz cheese. We wash and prepare veggies and use them as toppings along with turkey pepperoni. We make several and he makes each one unique. We put them in the toaster oven until the cheese is melted, then cut them into pieces and try them all. It's like a pizza buffet!

    # 1 stick softened butter
    # Approx. 1 lb. confectioners' sugar
    # 1 3/4 c. JIF peanut butter (1 18 oz. jar works!)
    # 1 tsp. vanilla
    # 1 tbsp. vegetable shortening
    # 1 (12 oz. package) semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Mix peanut butter, butter, and vanilla together in a large bowl - adding confectioners' sugar until proper consistency is reached.

    Roll candy into 1-inch balls and place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet.

    Melt chips and shortening together in top of double boiler.

    Keep chocolate mixture in double boiler over low heat while you dip each candy.

    Using a toothpick, dip each ball, covering about 3/4 of candy. Place candy on sheet to cool.
