However, when my little Monkey Girl watched the Mother’s Day episode of Dora the Explorer, she was so excited by the cake Dora made for her Mommy that I knew we had to do something too.
So… being the amazing cook I am… I bought a package of “just add water” banana muffin mix, a few bananas, some chocolate chips and walnuts. (In case you are wondering – we used one banana chopped into small chunks, 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and a small handful of walnuts to top them off for each batch of 12 we made.)
I then gathered some lovely helpers who just happened to come in the form of a 2,3,10 and 11 year old.
They were tasty and cute and made Monkey Girl smile and talk about them all week long! So worth the hour we spent making them on a rainy afternoon in May!
