EZ Bake Oven Fun
The girls got an EZ Bake Oven for Christmas this year, and mean mommy has only let them use it once! The mix that came with it was DISGUSTING, and the end result was a bunch of "ewwww!"s and me having to clean up the mess. So today, with nothing else to do on a snowy Sunday, I decided to look up recipes that they could use, instead of "cheating" and using a mix. We used a scaled down chocolate chip cookie recipe, and used mini M&M's since the pantry was out of chocolate chips. Except for being a little crusty, they didn't turn out too bad. They also made another batch, left out the M&M's, and rolled the dough in colored sugar and Valentine's heart sprinkles. Em ate a little bit of one of the M&M cookies, and said they were good but "too hard." In the end, all four cookies ended up in the garbage...but they had fun, and that is what counts.
