Kids in the kitchen. Sure, the first image that springs to mind may be your home in ruins, buttercream smeared across walls. Wait! Where are you going?
Real talk- baking with kids can be a super fun activity and with a little bit of planning & kid friendly recipes you can help the junior baker in your life have a blast! And then eventually they’ll be the ones baking you up treats...mwhaha. Ahem. Where were we?
1. Sprink-A-Roo Cookies
You’re telling me it’s a batch of sprinkle cookies served with a Funfetti Frosting dip? Yes, yes, that’s exactly what we’re telling you. This Sprink-a-roos recipe was originally created for our monthly sprinkle membership- both of which are the perfect burst of color for the kids in your life. And bonus nostalgia points for the 90’s kids in your life!
2. Marshmallow tortilla
Our dessert version of the TikTok quesadilla hack is the Marshmallow tortilla. This is the perfect baking project to do with kids because it’s incredibly versatile- use whatever fillings the kids love, and let them get as messy as they want. Aprons or messy clothes and a wipeable work surface HIGHLY encouraged.
3. Summer Themed Cakies
The name is adorable, the construction is fun, and kids can customize Cakies into the treat of their dreams! Cakies are kinda like ice cream sandwiches but nix the ice cream and replace it with cake and buttercream!
4. Lemon Berry Loaf
If you’re looking for a simple recipe to ease your kids into baking, this Lemon berry loaf is a great introduction. Plus since it’s a single loaf you get all the flavor of delicious muffins but none of the messiness of getting batter into the tins!
5. Movie Night Snack Bars
Plan an epic movie night! Have the kids vote on a flick to watch, play some kid’s movie trivia or bingo, and make these Movie night snack bars which combine all the best sweet and salty concession snacks into one ultimate snack.
6. Live Baking Tutorials For All Ages!
Our live baking tutorials are an awesome way to have someone else take the lead and just have fun with the kids in your life!
