Puppy dog cupcakes. Bunny biscuits. Froggy fruit. The list goes on and on.
If you've ever looked at them and thought, "OK, that's nice, but why should I do all the hard work while my kid reaps all the benefits?" you're not alone. Which is where Katie Wyllie comes in. Wyllie is the blogger behind Made to Be a Momma and author of the new book Kids' Treats: 50 Easy, Extra-Special Snacks to Make With Your Little Ones.
The mother of two little boys has managed to put together a list of the sweetest treats you can ever stare at and wonder "can I eat it when it's that cute" that — get this — the kids can help with!
From Cat in the Hat Cookies to Colorful Yogurt Dots, the book's full of sweet eats. Here are two of our favorites here at SheKnows (along with Katie's comments):
These friendly Frankenstein graham crackers are the perfect addition to any kids' Halloween bash!
They come together quickly when you use the premade gel icing you can find in your local craft store. I love the pop that the shimmer in the gel icing adds to this recipe, and the googly eyes bring these little Frankensteins to life.
Rice cereal treats are one of the easiest treats you can make, which is great because, when creating with kids, simple is always best. These Halloween-themed rice cereal treats put on a monster of a costume for the season and are a favorite among kids! Sometimes the best treats are the easiest — and the ones that are the most fun — to make.
