Cooking for Homeschool

This summer I had a great time making fun treats with the girls.  One of our favorite recipes were cake pops!

It was an easy recipe for the girls to follow and since baking is a part of our homeschool curriculum, it was fun education too!
I picked out the cake mix and called out the ingredients to Sophie.  She went and got the eggs, oil, mixing bowls, and utensils and lined everything up on the counter.
Then we read the directions.  I measured the oil; Sophie broke the eggs, added the oil and then added the cake mix.  She and Bella stirred until it was completely mixed, and then helped me put it in the pan.
I put it in the oven, and then we waited for it to cook.  Once the cake was done baking, I used a a butter knife to remove it from the pan and dumped it into a large bowl.  Once the cake cooled {about 10 minutes} we added a can of frosting into the bowl. 
We washed our hands and then mixed the cake and the icing together.  Then we rolled the mixture into balls and placed them in the fridge to cool.
We added white popsicle sticks and then I melted chocolate wafers in the microwave.

We dipped the cake pops into the melted chocolate and then set them on a pan to cool in the refridgerator.

This was an easy snack that the girls had fun making and was a yummy treat for after dinner!

Do you cook with your children?
