How To Bake Real Cookies In Your Play Kitchen

As a little girl, one of my most memorable moments was cooking with my mom & my sister.  We had a play kitchen (a must for every little girl) and my sister and I would play for hours and hours in our little kitchen!  However, the times that I remember the most are when my mom would help us whip up a batch of Chocolate No-Bake Cookies and bake them in our very own play oven.  Of course, I didn’t know they were “No-Bake” cookies, I thought “MY” oven baked them until they were done! 

I decided to carry on the tradition with my daughter and let her make her very own REAL cookies in her play kitchen!  She helped me mix up the cookies in my kitchen and then we placed them on a play cookie sheet.  She put them in the play oven and set the timer.  When they were done {after bath time} she took them out with her hot pad & used her play spatula to put them on plates for everyone! She couldn’t stop smiling!  I then let her serve the cookies to mom, dad, brother and herself!  I am pretty sure she thought this was the most fun thing she had ever done!  I am so glad that I took the time to help my little girl make her very own cookies!

Of course I have included the recipe! (:

 

Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 Tbs cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Stir together and boil for 1 minute.

Have ready in a bowl:

  • 3 cups quick oatmeal
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Pour hot mixture over dry ingredients.  Mix well.  Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper.
