E's first recipe. Blend peaches, yogurt, and honey, freeze, roll in sugar sprinkles. The recipe photo included a gumball garnish which, to E, was the most important piece of the process.
We already had Dixie cups and Popsicle sticks. We shopped for ingredients, including gumballs. I warned E that we would have to wait for the mixture to freeze. He was incredibly patient. He went to bed knowing the pops would've ready in the morning, and he woke up asking about them. He ran to the fridge, pulled out a pop, and brought it to me (still in bed). He happily rolled them in sprinkles, plated them with gumballs, then dove in.
He loved preparing then eating his snack. And it's slightly healthier than the cookies and brownies we've been making nightly, at his request.
Recipe #2 (piggy cake) was not even a little healthy, though. I'm trying to convince him to look beyond the snacks and desserts in his recipe box...
