I love spending time baking with my kids. I have wonderful memories of baking with my mom at a young age. I hope to give my kids good memories in the kitchen, too. My boys love to come help me bake! They have fun dumping out the ingredients and mixing them. Then we all have fun eating our treats in the end. Baking is one of our special times together.
I start out by gathering all of my ingredients. When you have kids helping you in the kitchen, it's good to try and be ready when they come to help.
I added the butter to the saucepan and started to melt on high heat. My 4-year-old then added the vanilla chips to the pan. (Of course we tasted a few first.) I continued to mix the butter and chips together over medium-high heat until melted.
