When the boys were little, and wanted to "cook," I started them out with instant pudding as they loved pudding, but even more they loved using the mixer. Next was this recipe as it is very easy, fun for little ones to make, and is
pretty much foolproof (and, as a "nod" to James Thurber today, I deleted the "pretty" as he detested the usage of that word in that way). It's a stress-free recipe with hardly any clean-up, perfect for entertaining children on any sort of day. Cook with your kids...or someone else's...it's a great memory maker. And, now, upon request from my boys for this for dessert, I give you Seven Layer Bars.
