What cooking with a toddler looks like - Rice Krispie Treat Balls

Cooking with a toddler... well make that a one year old... kind of a toddler. I wasn't quite sure what to think, I had grand plans of baking with my baby and then I realized that I might be nuts but why not let's give it a try.

To my surprise it was a great success! My little scatter-brained dude actually sat attentively! I'm sure the constant nomming of marshmallows and peanut butter chips helped a little bit. He enjoyed the stirring and kept saying "HOT!" (glad to see he's been paying attention to our safety lessons).

And there was lots of taste testing... and he was such a good helper!

And a good sharer... I think he liked them :) I will definitely do it again. We went for some Rice Krispie Treat Balls... no formal recipe, just butter, marshmallows, and krispies. I did add in some green food coloring to one batch and some peanut butter chips to another. Both were delish!
