The girls decided they wanted to "help" me make brownies the other day.......
I am all for help in the kitchen, but I was a little concerned that the brownies they were so excited to eat, would not taste so good. So I offered them a deal that they could not refuse.
As soon as I was done making the brownies and had them baking in the oven, I would let them make their own "special dessert" using all of my ingredients and the big mixer.
They absolutely loved the idea! They measured, leveled, and mixed all on their own with no one telling them what to do. There were no rules and no recipes to follow.
One of the cooks in the kitchen thought the unsweetened Hershey's Cocoa Powder smelled good enough to eat, so she gave it a try!
YUCK, I don't think she will try that again!!
Poor thing was trying to scrub her tongue after she ate a big spoonful.
How could something that smelled so good, taste so bad?
My kitchen looked like a war zone by the time they were done.
There was sugar, flour, water, and cocoa powder covering every inch of counter, cabinet, and floor, but none of that mattered when I looked up to see that my girls that were overflowing with joy from the top of their heads..........
to the tips of their toes!!!
The girls got the best of both worlds......they got to eat good brownies and got to have great fun!
A special thanks to one of my best friends, Shelly, who gave the girls these adorable aprons!
She knew they would put them to good use with the holidays just around the corner.
There will be lots of baking in our kitchen this year.
The aprons were purchased at Flirty Aprons.
