yitzy’s adventure in the kitchen

22 Mar

Since this story is about me, my Mom said I should write it.  I am 9 years old. I found a recipe in a book, and thought I would try it out. It is a no bake recipe, called Chocolate Nests. It contains marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. I liked working by myself (even though my mother helped me a lot) . the best part is you don’t even have to bake it, and it’s great! I already packaged them to give to my friends for shalach manos.

Here’s where Mom takes over.  Since Yitzy has read all 7 Harry Potter books, and many other book series’ appropriate for his age, he is embarrassed to tell you that he found this recipe in the back of a Curious George Visits the Chocolate Factory Book.  We were at a neighbors’, and it was lying around and he chanced upon the recipe on the back page where he was checking out the Word Find.  He had a copy made and put it aside to make at this appropriate time.
