Wacky Desserts for Childrenthumbnail Children are enthusiastic kitchen helpers.

Even kids get tired of the same old desserts. Try one that's a little bit wacky and you may tickle someone's silly bones. These dessert ideas are just strange enough to bring a smile to everyone's face. They can be used as a sweet finale to a simple family dinner or as the dining centerpiece to a special party. Best of all, they are easy enough that the kids can help prepare them.

  1. Rocks and Sticks

      Stir 3 cups semisweet chocolate pieces, 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk, 2 tbsp. butter, 1 ½ tsp. vanilla, and a dash of salt in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the chocolate melts. Remove and stir in 2 cups mini-marshmallows until combined. Pour into a foil-lined 9-by-9-inch baking pan. Swirl marshmallows through the fudge just until they are mostly melted. Chill for 2 hours. Scoop small spoonfuls from the pan and shape them into rocks. Roll each one in cocoa powder or powdered sugar. Serve your rocks over chow mein noodles (sticks).

      Serve your young diners "Sand Pail Cake" for dessert, and afterward, the pails can be used for play. Purchase a small pail and shovel for each guest. Wash them well. Bake a yellow or white cake. Cut it into small squares. Fill one plastic pail for each guest halfway to the top with the squares. Cover with frosting (this does not need to be done too neatly). Crumble graham crackers over the frosting to make the sand. Challenge your young guests to eat their cakes with their shovels.
