Cooking with the Kid: Chocolate Cupcakes

My little guy has been helping out in the kitchen since he was in his high chair. Nowadays, he still loves to stir and pour, but his cooking skills have increased. His new favorite part of cooking is cracking eggs. I showed him how to do it, and then let him figure it out himself. Sometimes there are eggshells, but his sense of pride and fostering independence is more important to me. We love to make things from scratch, but this time we just used chocolate cake mix. The results were still yummy!

 Once the cupcakes had cooked, L was able to do his most favorite part, the decorating! We have loads of different sprinkles, and although I suggested autumn related sprinkles, he picked his favorite Valentine's Day themed ones.

 He was very attentive to detail and each one came out differently. This took a lot of time, but the kiddo had a lot of fun. 

Once he had finished decorating, he was able to taste test, and they definitely got his seal of approval! 

I am always looking for new recipes to cook with Logan. What is your favorite thing to cook with kids?
