Kids love desserts. In fact, you could argue that dessert is the best part of your kid’s day. They just love to dive into a sweet treat that’s delicious and looks great. Kids love desserts that are made with bright and vivid colors, such as rainbow food coloring or sprinkles (or like confetti desserts!). They also love anything that includes their favorite characters, imaginary unicorns, and other fun themes. When it comes to desserts, the best recipes are both easy to make and fun for them to eat.
How to Make Easy Desserts for Kids
Desserts are a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen. If your kids are older or have more experience in the kitchen, you can let them take the reins and concoct an easy dessert completely on their own. Start your kids off on their baking journey with a boxed cake or brownie mix. Show them how to use measuring cups to measure out the water and oil. Then, instruct them on how to follow the instructions to make sure it comes together perfectly.
If you’re feeling brave, you can branch off and delve into more complicated desserts, such as cookies or a layer cake. There’s no end to the different concoctions you and your kids can make – and enjoy – when you use your imagination and a little know-how.
