thought I would start Monday off with a delicious treat!  MONSTER cookies with EDIBLE MONSTER eyeballs! Not only did we make them because they are so yummy but also because my kids love helping in the kitchen and this was a fun treat they could help make while learning important skills!

Most kids love to cook or help in the kitchen. It is fascinating to watch Mom or Dad cook up a fantastic meal and they want to be a part of it! There are TONS of skills being practiced when cooking some being: measuring, pouring, scooping mixing and of course patience! My kids LOVED doing this especially adding the edible monster eyeballs at the end!

I love a good treat every once in a while and this one really satisfies my sweet tooth. I am always looking for ideas for my sweet tooth. Share your favorite treats so that I can make one of yours!
