Oreo Cocoa Krispy Truffles – The little guy and I made some treats! This kid is Oreo OBSESSED but then again, who isn’t?!!

1/2cup cocoa krispies
5 MEGA stuff Oreos (anything less is for sissy’s!)
32 grams fat free cream cheese
CandiQuik (@candiquik) white melting chocolate (best stuff EVER)

This is a good one to get the kids involved with but it can be messy! Fun, but definitely messy. Place 4 of the Oreos in a zip lock bag and crush them either by hand or with a mallet. Dylan chose to beat them senseless! Mix the crushed Oreos, cocoa krispies & cream cheese together in a bowl until well combined – and this is where it gets messy. We found it easiest to do it by hand vs. using a spoon! Once well combined, roll into 6 even sized balls and set on wax paper. Place the balls in the freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden before dipping in chocolate. Melt chocolate in a small dish for about 60 seconds, stirring at the 30 second mark. Insert a tooth pick into the top of the ball and dip in chocolate. Set back on wax paper and repeat with the remaining 5. Place back into the refrigerator/freezer until the chocolate has set. Take the last Oreo and remove the filling. Crush the 2 cookie pieces in a small bowl. Spread some of the white filling on top of each truffle and then dip into crushed cookie. Store covered in the refrigerator.

My little guy was responsible for using the cookie cutter on the bread as well as crushing the cereal! His future wife will thank me for the cooking skills he is going to have by then!

Ingredients:

Few Slices of bread

1/2-1cup of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal (plan on about 1/3-1/2 cup per serving of bread)

2 egg whites

1oz any milk

1/2tsp cinnamon

1/2tsp vanilla extract

Place the cereal in a zip lock bag and using a rolling pin, rubber mallet or even little hands crush up the cereal into smaller pieces and pour into a shallow dish. Optional – Use any cookie cutter to cut out desired shape of bread. Combine the eggs, milk, cinnamon & vanilla together in a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Dip bread into egg mixture and then into the cereal, coating both sides. Cook over medium low heat (cereal will burn on high temps, ask me how I know!) for a few minutes on each side. Serve with warm maple syrup!

S’mores Cookie Sandwiches – dessert for my little guy tonight!

Perfect kid friendly cooking! I placed the melted chocolate & Marshmallow crème in two separate zip lock bags with a little of the corners cut off. He was responsible for picking out his letters from the cookie box and then he squeezed the chocolate & marshmallow onto the cookies and smooshed them together! His definitely didn’t look like the picture but they tasted just as good 😉
