Simple Dessert Ideas

Thank you in advance. I am working at school again with autistic children. We are having a picnic next friday. Does anyone have any simple ideas for dessert. I really don't want to cut sugar cookies. I found a recipe for watermelon cookies. Dying 3 colors of dough is a bit much?

My disabled daughter loves to dip foods into sauces, etc. You could get plain small donuts, and set out containers of various toppings. Dip the donuts into a sugar glaze (the glue) and let the children choose to then dip their donuts into mini chips or dessert sprinkles or crushed nuts. Or your containers could hold jelly, chocolate sauce, peanut butter (they'd have to spread that one), or whatever works for you.

Top a portion of regular (not non-fat or low-fat) ricotta cheese with defrosted sweetened, sliced strawberries. It is simple and delicious, as well as being high in protein and vitamins.

a long time ago someone posted recipes from an abc cookbook.all the recipes were geared for children and only had like 4 or 5 ingredients to them

i'm sure thriftyfun could give you the link

good luck

Editor's Note: In the topics box on the left, choose "recipes", in the category choose "Recipes for kids" the ABC recipes start on the second page but there are other recipes for kids also that may work.

Bake a white cake mix. Let cool and spread a can of cherry pie filling on top of it. Then spread a large container of cool whip over that. Very simple and very yummy!

rice krispie treats are about as simple as it gets.

you could toast marshmallows. you can do that with wooden skewers and toast over candles if you have enough of them (if a nice bon fire isn't an option)

i've not been around many autistic children so i don't know their abilities or limitations.

bobbing for apples is fun, but wet.

How about instant pudding which they can mix or top with crunchy cereal, choc chips, marshamllow, cool whip, cookie crumbs, even gummy worms. Flower pots dessery made of choc pudding, with a rop layer of cooky crumbs and a gummy worm crawling out are fun-add a gumdrop flower on a straw stem for fun!

Chocolate covered pretzel rods are SUPER easy, and something that be made a head of time.

Very inexpensive as well.

You can buy tons of different colored melting chocolates at your craft store.

Just melt the chocolate and roll the pretzel rods in the chocolate, leaving a little room at the top so the kids can hold on to them. Once the pretzel is covered in the chocolate you can roll it in any kind of extras (sprinkles, crushed up candy bars, or nuts), or just leave them plain. Place them on a cookie sheet that has wax paper on it and let them dry. You can prepare them days ahead of time!

Get flat bottom ice cream cones. Cook any box cake mix in them by filling 3/4 full and sitting in cupcake pans. You can ice them with any flavor icing and the kids can carry their "ice cream" cake and not worry about plates or forks. My husband cut holes in the bottom of a bottled water flat, I covered it with tin foil after turning it upside down and it works great to transport them to church functions. Very easy and kids love them.

Ice Cream in a Baggy

In a pint sized baggy combine:

1 cup milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla

3 Tbl. sugar

Zip it closed getting out as much air as possible.

Put the pint size baggy into a gallon baggy with:

1/3 bag of ice

1/4 cup salt on the ice.

Zip it closed and shake the baggy (the kids love this part) until the

ice cream is firm. Cut a corner off the small baggy and squeeze the ice

cream into a cup or bowl. Top with toppings of your choice.
