Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #99: A Chocolate Snake in the Garden of Eden

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky to share what you and your children have created in the kitchen.)


The linky is at the bottom.

This week we were learning about Adam and Eve with My Father's World 1st grade.  It had been a while since I had made a muffin tin meal, so I decided this would be a fun subject to use for one. I had the children make their dessert, the chocolate snake, which is a recipe I found over at the DLTK Growing Together site.  Then I added a Pretzel and Broccoli Apple Tree that I discovered over at the Muffin Tin Mom blog.

This is how we made the chocolate snake.


1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dry milk
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbs cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (we used pecans)
1/2 cup raisins
2 Tbs coconut

I have two children who do not like raisins. So I let my oldest daughter Krystal work with Amelia to make a separate half a batch without raisins.

First we combined the peanut butter with the dry milk. In order to get it to blend well we needed to do a fold-and-smooch more than a stir.

Then we added the remaining ingredients one at a time, stirring to combine after each addition. (Don't you love simple recipes?)

Oh, I did have to chop the pecans.

I then divided the mixture evenly and we rolled out our snakes.

For the muffin tins, I followed the directions from Muffin Tin Mom to make the tree. It is quite simple. One slice of bread will make two trees. You flatten it with a rolling pin, remove the crusts, spread peanut butter on one side, roll it up, and cut in half. Then you put peanut butter on the outside, a section at a time, to help hold the pretzel sticks in place. A broccoli floret is added for the leaves and a red Skittle is the fruit. If you would like to see step by step instructions, you will find them over at Muffin Tin Mom.

I set the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" in the center of the tin and then added fruits and veggies to  represent all the food God provided for them to eat. There are animal crackers and cheese flowers as well. 

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