"The Kids Wanna Help" Desserts
by Amy Hunt

Rebecca is my 19 month-old daughter who already loves to help out in the kitchen. Whether the task is doing the dishes or baking she wants to be right by my side where all the action is.

I love to let her “help” me make cookies. I give her her own mixing bowl and spoon and let her go to work. Really all she ends up doing is making a big mess and eating a lot of sugar.

The task that she does very well at is being the guardian of the chocolate chips. She makes sure that daddy’s fingers never get close to stealing the chocolate.

If you have some “Rebeccas” of your own then you know how much fun kids can have in the kitchen. Desserts seem to be the easiest course to let little hands help out with.

Here are some child friendly desserts to try out with your little ones. They will both fill tummies and entertain.

Oreo Sand and Dirt Cups

1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 qt. (4 cups) cold milk, divided
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
20 OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed
16 gummy worms

PREPARE vanilla and chocolate pudding mixes separately with milk as directed on packages. Let stand 5 minutes. Gently stir 1/2 cup of the whipped topping into each bowl of pudding.

SPRINKLE 1 Tbsp. of the cookie crumbs into bottom of each of 8 (6-oz.) dessert cups; top each with layers of 1/4 cup vanilla pudding, 1 Tbsp. cookie crumbs and 1/4 cup chocolate pudding. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cookie crumbs. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.

INSERT 2 gummy worms into each dessert just before serving.
