Cooking with kids is so much fun! My son, EJ, and I had a blast making his favorite dessert. This time we added the unexpected twist of a chocolate candy kiss on top – this recipe is a keeper!
Be sure to check out the video on my YouTube channel. EJ is so proud! He can’t wait to see how many views he gets. Don’t forget to add a thumbs up, he’ll be thrilled!
In order to make this dish a breeze for school-age kids to make on their own, we started with a store-bought fudge brownie mix. It’s easy enough to use a scratch recipe if you prefer.
