Easy Decorated Fish Cookies: Kids Cooking!

Easy Decorated Fish Cookies by children from waddleeahchaa.com

Each month our family helps host Cambodia Cafe at our Church. Cambodia Cafe sells sweet treats to support our children and the AIM school in Cambodia. I find this ironic because I’m not much into baking sweet treats. While I thoroughly enjoy cooking, I consider baking to be a high-maintenance endeavor.

My monthly venture into baking sweet treats is a testimony of my total devotion to our children and friends in Cambodia. Not to mention, I’m on a mission to end the sex-trafficking of children!

Easy Decorated Fish Cookies

One important aspect of Cambodia Cafe, is my children help bake our donated sweet treats. The problem is our weekends are always total chaos and I usually don’t plan ahead. On Friday, I had a brainstorm. Why don’t we make giant cookies and decorate them with the Swedish fish left over from MacGyver’s birthday cupcakes.

What a great recipe for kids! The cookies turned out lovely, and it’s awesome that they went to a great cause.

I agree Natalie, the best thing about baking the cookies with my kiddos is that it supports the children we love in Cambodia! Miss Enigma begs to go to Cambodia with me to play with her friends. If only the flight weren’t so loooooong!
