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.
I have a peanut butter chewies recipe that is a hit
with kids, also a candy popcorn ball recipe. Email
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.
Caramel apples (dippin' sauce and sliced apples), peanut butter cookies (1 c. peanut butter, 1 c. sugar, 1 egg, 1 t. vanilla - drop and bake at 350 until set), or worms and dirt (chocolate pudding cups sprinkled with crushed Oreos and gummy worms). Good eatin'!
