Fast and Simple Dessert Recipes for KidsPosted: July 20, 2012
When your kids are craving something sweet, you need simple recipes that won’t break the bank or take hours out of your busy schedule. The results are in – Playtime Recipe has chosen its’ top three simple dessert recipes for kids – and moms!
- One package Oreo cookies
- One container of Cool Whip
- ½ c. butter
- 2 packages of vanilla pudding mix (instant)
- ½ cup of sugar
- 3 ½ cups of milk
- 1 package gummie worms
Place Oreos in separate plastic bags (depending on how many kids are helping)
Give your kids rolling pins to roll the cookies into a grainy powder
Mix butter and sugar in one bowl, Cool Whip, milk, and pudding mix in another
Combine the two bowls together
Kids can now add their crushed cookies to the mixture, either doing dirt “layers”, or mixing all of the cookies in at once.
Be sure to save enough cookie dust to create a solid dirt layer on top of the mixture
Add gummie worms on top of the mixture. Enjoy!
Your kids don’t have to be around a campfire to enjoy a simple dessert recipe like S’mores!
- 1 package of large marshmallows
- 6 Hershey chocolate bars
- 1 package of graham crackers
Break graham crackers in half to form two squares
Break Hershey bars in half and place on graham crackers (one half chocolate bar may be enough per S’more, depending on your child’s sweet tooth!)
Place 6 marshmallows on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 10-15 seconds. (Microwave ovens vary, so keep an eye on these while they’re cooking!)
Place melted marshmallows on top of the chocolate bars
Place the other half of the graham cracker on top of the marshmallow. Enjoy this gooey, simple dessert!
Peanut Butter Fondue
A fun, kid-friendly twist on a classic dessert (for kids with peanut allergies, stick to classic chocolate!) Fondue is a great dessert for kids because they can dip anything from fruit to cheese to hot dog bites!
- 1 c. smooth peanut butter
- 1 c. heavy whipping cream
- 4-5 tbsp honey
- A dash of cinnamon
- A dash of nutmeg
- Assorted dippers: strawberries, figs, shortbread cookies, Hershey’s kisses, pretzels
Boil heavy whipping cream in a saucepan. Add honey and bring both to a boil.
Reduce the heat, then add the peanut butter.
Stir vigorously on low heat until the ingredients form a creamy mixture.
If you have a fondue pot, place the mixture inside and light the candle underneath. If you don’t have a fondue pot, you can either leave the mixture on very low heat on the stovetop, or place the pot on top of a metal cylinder with a candle beneath to form your own makeshift fondue pot!
Add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste, mix thoroughly.
Let the dipping begin!
