There are so many lessons to be taught in the kitchen! Fractions, organizational skills, multi-tasking, creativity—and patience. Mostly for me because let’s face it, kids are messy. Cracked eggs, over spray from cake batter, pouring milk into the bowl too quickly. It’s so much easier to just do it myself, but that’s kind of not the point. So I just keep a package of wipes on hand and call it good!
Rocky Road Pudding Pops Recipe
1 package instant chocolate pudding (3.9 oz)
2 c. milk
1/3 c. mini chocolate chips
1/3 c. chopped walnuts
3/4 c. mini marshmallows
We used mini paper cups to keep things easy. 12 cups fit perfectly on a small baking sheet.
Did I mention that my girls are messy? Practice makes perfect. Each time they cook or bake they are one step closer to finding their groove in the kitchen.
After filling each cup up a little more than half way, Ruby added a popsicle stick into the center of each cup and we put them into the freezer for a couple of hours (until firm). Kaylee helped herself to finishing up the leftovers in the bowl.
Not only do the girls love helping me bake, they also love helping me clean up. I wish they’d show as much excitement for cleaning out the van or weeding as they do when it comes to doing dishes and wiping down hard surfaces, but hey, I’ll take what I can get!
By the time we cleaned up our sticky mess and watched a movie the pops were just about done. To remove, simply press against the bottom of the cup and the rocky road pop will come right out.
