Making homemade goodies is a fun way for budding chefs to share their talents with the people they care about. It’s also a great way to cultivate culinary confidence! Here are two gift ideas that are manageable and fun for even the youngest gift-givers!
Is there anything more nourishing than a bowl of soup? Dry soup mixes are easy and fun to make and provide kids – even very young ones – a chance to practice their pouring skills.
Compound butter is simply softened (unsalted) butter, mixed + mashed with sweet or savory ingredients. That’s it. It’s ridiculously easy to make. And it can be a refreshing change from the usual holiday fare. SWEET compound butters make terrific spreads for muffins, scones, and pancakes. Why not sweeten things up for the people on your list with this super simple honey butter recipe from Kalona Supernatural?
SAVORY versions can make practically anything they’re tossed with even yummier (think: veggies, noodles, or popcorn).
And be prepared: once kids get the hang of it, they’ll start inventing their own compound butter recipes and ideas for how to use them!
