Fun With Baking {Betty Crocker} - Our Package and trying the Cookie Mix

I was very happy to receive our package for the Betty Crocker Fun With Baking campaign.

The boys too were very excited and couldn't wait to get baking. Half Term was coming up the next week and the package came at just the right time.
Although I bake from scratch, I used to have so much fun using packet/box mixes and I knew that the boys would find it really fun to make goodies using a mix. It would also be quick and simple.

The package arrived and my youngest was so happy, dancing and whooping. The other two in age were also happy and the three of them unpacked the box with great interest (the older two were busy doing other stuff - teenagers lol)

The box contained:
• 1x Vanilla Icing
• 1x Velvety Vanilla Cake Mix
• 1x Chocolate Chip Cookies Pouch
• 1x Chocolate Fudge Brownies
• 5x Betty Crocker ‘Baking with Kids’ Recipe Cards
• 1x Campaign Guide (12-page)

For us to use and:

• 20x Activity Flyers
(to entertain the kids during the half-term holiday)
• 20x vouchers for £1 off all Betty Crocker products

For me to give away.

The boys decided that they want to bake the cookies first.

I thought I'd add some mini marshmallows and we got baking.

I followed the instructions and placed all the ingredients into our mixing bowl. I let the boys take it in turns to mix.

Next came the forming of the cookies - I chose the ball method and we flattened them slightly with the back of a fork.

I put them in the oven for slightly less than the suggested time as I wanted them to be soft and goey.

The results were indeed soft and goey and quite delicious if we say so ourselves ;)

The boys were very proud of their efforts and enjoyed tasting them, as did the two teenagers who unsurprisingly were no longer too busy - hmmmm

All in all it was a great baking time and the Brownies have been voted to be the next try out. I'll be sure to post when we bake them.

*** Please note that we were fortunate to receive the Betty Crocker package as part of a campaign. As always, my thoughts and opinions are honest and genuine (Not sure what protocol is but thought I'd add this in to keep all in the know xxx)
