|Ceci enjoying her hard work when all the dipping was done|
So this year I decided to make chocolate dipped treats at home, but with Ceci helping I needed to keep them nut free. I bought Hershey's Chocolate Chips and melted them in the double boiler, and we dipped all sorts of yummy things pretzles, chips, ghram crackers, anything really. We even made nut free clusters using dried edamame beans and craisins, chex and crasins, and for Tim I made cheerio clusters (in a separate bowl). Ceci had a great time and was really good about being careful of the warm pan and even learned a new word, Generous. She had trouble understanding that we should put more than a dot of chocolate on each item, so I explained that each item needs more chocolate so it tastes better and our friends and family like them more. She was so adorable after that, each time she dipped she would show me the item and say "Mommy, this is generous!" Yes my love, You are generous!
It made for a super fun afternoon and an easy way to make treats for lots of people.
