Fun Holiday Cooking for Children

Posted on 12-02-2016

For some, the kitchen is the world’s most dangerous place. There are knives and hot things all over the place. Preschoolers are probably even more intimidated by the kitchen.

But you could change all that with just a few holiday snacks. Maybe you’re not too good in the kitchen either—that’s okay! This is the perfect time of year to change. It’s like a pre–New Year’s resolution.

These simple holiday snacks can encourage your child’s kitchen creativity, showing him how fun and easy the kitchen can be. And who knows, before you know it he might be bringing you breakfast in bed!

Marshmallow Snowmen

The blog It’s Always Autumn has created a fun treat—marshmallow snowmen!

All you need is marshmallows (of course), pretzel sticks, toothpicks, chocolate chips, and candy corn.

Simply stick three marshmallows on top of one another for the body, connected with toothpicks. Then put the pretzel sticks into its body for the arms and legs. Place three chocolate chips on its belly for the buttons. Finally, put the candy corn in place for the nose, and there you have it!

Melted Snowmen Chocolate Bark

Princess Pinky Girl made a fun creation featuring melted snowmen. All you need—for a simple version—is white chocolate, pretzel sticks, candies for the buttons, orange sprinkles for the noses, and googly eyes.

Melt the white chocolate to make the bark. This serves as the “puddle” of snow. Then, place three candies for the buttons in a line in the middle of where you want your snowman to be. Then place an orange sprinkle right above them for the nose. Pretzel sticks go on either side of the buttons for the arms. Finally, put down the eyes where you think they should go, and voila!

Candy Cane Hearts

This is an easy one. Oh Nuts created this fun snack with just chocolate and candy canes!

Simply put two candy canes facing each other so they make a heart onto some baking pan. Then pour melted chocolate in the middle to make a filling. Crush up another candy cane in the middle for decoration, and there you have it!

These snacks can be super easy to make, especially for children. It will teach them about putting certain foods together, using kitchen instruments, and adding a little heat! It’s the perfect combo for a holiday cooking party.
