Yes, I’m still catching up! Oh! And this also happens to be my 800th post! (Cue confetti burst) And just think, if I had been able to import my posts from my WordPress blog, it would be perhaps my 900th post. Thank you so much for reading, especially to those of you who have endured the entire 800+. You bring joy to my life. 🙂
The following took place waaay back in early May. During the first part of the year, I let each child take turns picking out a recipe from our kids’ cookbook for us to make together. I still enjoy having their help in the kitchen, but due to busy a summer and a crazy schedule, we’ve gotten away from picking out a particular recipe to make together. Lately they’ve been helping me with whatever I’ve picked out! I do hope to get back to letting them choose a recipe again soon, though. It’s a lot of fun! Here’s Laci’s selection, “Ooey Gooey Caramel Chocolate Dunk”, from The Pampered Chef’s Kids in the Kitchen cookbook.
- Unwrap caramels and place in bowl. Add evaporated milk, chocolate morsels and vanilla and stir.
- Place in microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 3 minutes. Remove and stir. Return to microwave and continue microwaving 30 seconds to 1 minute or until caramel is melted. Stir until smooth. (Don’t worry if there are a few unmelted pieces of caramel.
- Serve with your favorite dippers! 🙂
