Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #66: Peanut Butter Frosting

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky where you can share your special time in the kitchen, such a great place for learning. You can also link up Kid-Friendly Recipes)


The linky is at the bottom.

The girls surprised me one day by baking a chocolate cake (they forgot there was wheat in the cake I guess). Of course I decided we needed some peanut butter frosting to go with it, so the younger two helped me make it.


1/2 cup shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3-6 Tbs milk (start with smallest amount and add until spreadable consistency)
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

First we combined the shortening and peanut butter

Then we added in 3 Tbs of milk and 1/3 of the sugar.

We continued to add sugar until it was all combined. As you can see, it is not yet the right consistency, so we added more milk.

After adding a total of 6 Tbs of milk we had the right consistency.

Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?

I'd love to see your posts, whether you have done something this week or some time in the past. Just link up below. This is a weekly linky.
