Kids in the Kitchen: Hershey’s Halloween Snacks

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Kids in the Kitchen

Last week I received a box full of Hershey’s chocolates (for a sponsored post that will go live next week).  I’ve had all that chocolate in my fridge and the boys have been chomping at the bit to eat it.  So last night, we pulled out pretzels and Rolo candies to make Broomsticks.

I don’t want to give it all away, but these were a little difficult for the boys to help make.  They did enjoy eating them, though!

Have you made any fun Halloween snacks?

Did you have fun in the “kitchen” this week?  Did you try a new food or a new kid friendly restaurant?  Did your little ones use their snacks to count to 10?  We invite you to share your experiences, photos, stories or recipes that include your #kidsinthekitchen!

Come join me and my co-hosts, Melinda at Look What Mom FoundPaula at Frosted Fingers,  Lisa of HooplaPaloooza and Sarah of Play2LearnWithSarah, each week by linking up a post, new or old, that features the theme Kids in the Kitchen.  It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together, enjoying it and learning something along the way.

Don’t have a blog?  That’s ok!  Just share an Instagram photo or Facebook update.

    looks like fun!!

  4. Those sound good. I love rolos. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

  5. How fun! Even if it was a bit hard for them, it looks like it definitely kept their attention. And then they got to eat them! What’s better than that?

  6. cute idea…but I don’t know about sharing rolos, they’re one of my faves!!

  7. An aside, you have hershey’s chocolates in the fridge, and only your boys are munching on them? heheheh if this is my home, they would ALL be gone before I can even do any blogging about it! :)

  8. Oh, I think I know what those are going to be ….so easy for the kids to make, too!

    Just unwrapping those things, though. Ugh!

  9. They look like they’re having a good time and calculating when they can eat it, lol.

  10. Look at him! He is so focused.. so cute! What a great and delicious idea for a halloween snack :)

  11. Rebecca Parsons says:

    These do look good thought. Chocolate, caramel and pretzels are really good together. It really is fun to have them take part in making food and snacks it teaches them a great responsibility in the Kitchen.

  12. What a cute idea to make broomsticks. And I love Rolo’s. I would have trouble saving any for the treat.

  13. I love this series!! You can tell the boys are having a blast!

  14. Those are cute and it looks like they’re really into it. What a great way to get them thinking creatively! Rolo’s are yummy!

  15. Cooking with candy is always fun for kids, especially if they get to eat some as they go along!

  16. I love those broomsticks. They are fun, adorable… and very yummy.

    I am, however, very jealous of you – a BOX FULL of Hershey’s chocolate!!! That would be a dream come true. ;)

  17. I can’t wait to see the end result! Love the idea of broomsticks :)

  18. Oh those look so fun and easy! Carter could do those too! I am going to have to make these this week! We just did Halloween brownies today!

  19. My son is taking cooking at school. I really need to get him more involved in cooking at home.

  21. I love getting the children involved in the kitchen!

  22. Yum! These look so much fun and easy to do with young kids. Your kids look like they are having a blast!

  23. This looks like a lot of fun. I bet your kids had a blast doing this. I have to remember to come back on Monday to share our kids crafts for Halloween provided it’s still open.

  24. You have a “Mom Drawer”! I need to make myself one of those!! These treats look like so much fun!

  25. I love all of these kids ideas. I can tell I’ve got loads of ideas to store away.
