2 Minute Dessert Recipes

I’ve created my own monsters and I am well aware of it.   My kids ask to bake things on the regular, which I love, but I don’t always love the cleaning up.  I’ve also had a few friends that say they love looking at the recipes on the blog, but don’t have the time or energy to make them.

I have come to answer your prayers.  Ok, maybe not prayers, but I have something great for you that each take less than 2 minutes to prepare.  Who can’t do that??  I promise, it  even looks and tastes good enough to get your mom badge if we were still in Girl Scout days.  ( Which PS, shouldn’t that be a thing?  I totally deserve a vest with badges and flair for what I do)

**If you overdo it with the cinnamon/sugar (which I do on purpose) then you get a hardened caramel glaze on the bottom that is amazeballs**

If you have your kids help with these, they will legit feel like they are baking.  Your house will smell amazing and your tummy will thank you.  I’m not saying these are the healthiest, but a chocolate croissant from Panera has around 370 calories and one of these chocolate croissants has less than 150.

You don’t have to dirty every bowl in the house to make a homemade treat and you get to spend time with your kids.  Sometimes a few minutes like this is what everyone needs!
