Baking Brownies from Scratch

Last Friday we wanted to switch from a meal to a dessert! Chocolate brownies were on the menu!

We also had a little help from some of the preschoolers who wanted to join in! ;0)

The students all helped one another out with measuring,pouring and stirring firmly!

 We were so excited to add sugar! Something we love! ;-D

Sometimes we need help cracking our eggs but we are perfecting it for the most part…

Finally after adding all the flour , we greased the pan with lots of butter!

 We were so excited to wake up from nap time and see our yummy brownies ready on the snack table!

We couldn’t wait to dig in and LOVED our brownies!
