It's actually fun when they are helping out in the kitchen. I love that they are so ready to learn and jump right in to help.
I saw a recipe a few months ago for candy buttons, do you remember them? They looked super easy to make, so I thought we could give it a try.
Here is a picture of the real thing:
I think we nailed it.
It is a really simple and fun recipe for kids to make!
Here is what you will need -
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
Mix the egg white & powdered sugar together in a bowl for roughly 5 minutes, until your mixture can form stiff peaks. Separate into little bowls and add food coloring, mix well. Put mixture into a sandwich bag and cut a small corner to pipe the mixture onto wax paper, into little dots. Let dry overnight. Ta-da! You have made your own candy buttons. I gave a bag to each of my kids and let them go at it. We had fun......they even drew pictures on wax paper with the left overs we had.
