My kids love being creative and making messes, I think they go hand in hand.

When they want to get creative in the kitchen,I find it opens up a wonderful window of opportunity to teach them a few things, as well as allowing them to be little chefs.

I’m pretty sure I have one of the few 6 year olds that doesn’t like chocolate (I still have no idea how that happened, definitely not my gene pool).Among her disgust for chocolate, she has nut allergies, and texture issues. So I really need a good brainstorm when thinking of what fun desserts she can take part in.

I thought that using cereal add-ins would be perfect, they are sweet,colorful, and crunchy.

It’s also nice knowing exactly what your kids are eating, it may be dessert but we made it ourselves.


What you need:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
