Our Cups Runneth Over!

In the KitchenI’m always looking for fun ways to get my kids in the kitchen. Even if they are only making themselves a snack, I want to encourage a love of cooking and exploration of flavor. It’s a bonus if they can make it by themselves right out the gate; teaching my children to work independently and gain confidence in the kitchen.

While perusing the newest Rachel Ray magazine, we came across THIS fun recipe which will work perfectly! It’s simple, fun, and easily made by the kids:

Banana Wonton Cups

You’ll Need:
cooking spray
12 wonton wrappers
2 bananas, peeled and thinly sliced
6 tbsp. jarred (or freshly made) caramel sauce
1 cup whipped cream
dark chocolate, for shaving

Coat mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Fit wonton wrappers into muffin cups; bake at 325º until crispy, 12 to 13 minutes. Fill wonton cups with bananas and caramel; top with whipped cream. Using vegetable peeler, shave chocolate on top. Makes twelve.

I am loving the ‘wonton snack’ idea! As I mentioned, this is a fairly simple recipe and easily adapts to almost any fruit. I think we might be exploring with this ingredient quite a bit in the coming months.

We found this to be a perfect bite to enjoy during Our Morning Basket time and, in general, during our learning day. They whip up quickly, and everyone enjoys a fun looking snack buried in whipped cream!
