Double Chocolate Cookies
If a 4 year old can be a chocoholic, Phoebe is. She has such a sweet tooth! These chocolate cookies with M&M's are her favorite. They really are fantastic - you should try them. Also, they're easy to make and I usually have all the ingredients in the pantry.
If you do make them, ditch the "bowl set over simmering water" and just microwave the butter and chocolate in 30 sec. intervals, stirring until melted.
I thought this was also a good time to talk about cooking with kids - isn't it fun? I love how she's learning about measurements, different ingredients, and is becoming more independent. Cracking eggs is a big deal around here. I am planning to integrate more cooking into my classroom next year.
