Spring is right around the corner and I don’t know about you but I am BEYOND excited! I don’t mind the cold so much, but I walk my son to school and walking in 3 degrees with a windchill that puts us in the negatives is horrible. Thankfully the school is only like 5/10 mins from my house depending in how fast you walk. Haha.
With spring around the corner we all want to try new recipes and make some of the family favorites!
What better way to start spring off than with some cookies and family fun!
We love some chocolate chip cookies over here. Actually every year at Christmas my mom makes her cookies from scratch using Nestle Toll House Morsels. As much as I love making cookies from scratch, this was a bit on the easier side and who doesn’t love when things are easy? I choose to use Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
I wanted to make some drizzle frosting so Jaiden can have some fun and drizzle frosting over his cookies. I don’t remember the exact measurements I used for the frosting as I kind of just improvised until I got the taste and consistency I want. I used Powdered Sugar, Butter, Little bit of Milk, and Cream Cheese.
I then dyed it the colors I wanted. It was supposed to be blue and a coral color but it came out a bit darker then planned. Oops.
However, I believe the colors turned out nice and Jaiden was very excited to have fun!
Jaiden and I had a blast decorating our Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies for spring.
I think it’s very important to allow your little ones into the kitchen and learn the process of cooking and baking so that when they are older and they do head out into the world on their own they won’t have to live off of microwavable foods. I understand budget wise they may but incase mom drops by with a bag of goodies your not so little one will know what to do.
When it comes to baking I know sometimes we like to have items that look nice like they just popped off the food network channel right into our homes right? But the thing is, let your kids in, let them try and let them have fun. They don’t have to be perfect or photo presentable because what you are doing is creating those perfect memories!
Life is short and besides caring for our children and giving them those material items they all want and need, the best thing that you can do for them is give them life long lasting memories! At the end of the day, that is what they will remember and want to create with their children.
Jaiden was so excited when I told him I had baked some cookies and when we got home from school he could decorate them.
Now, my idea may not have been the most creative but it was fun and we had a blast. Now be sure to head on over to Nestle Toll Houses Website and check out all the ideas they have!
Also be sure to check out their Nestle Toll House Rolled and Ready dough sheets. They are pretty cool for cutting out shapes which you know kids will love!! You can find Nestle Toll House goodies at you local super market in the refrigerated section.
Hope you enjoyed my Nestle Toll House Spring Cookies and Family Fun Share. =)
Be sure to create those memories with you little ones and family!
Many thanks to Nestle Toll House for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to bake cookies for my loved ones this spring!
