Last Saturday, Mini Me had a friend spend the night. Whenever she has friends stay the night, I make breakfast the next morning for them. Note: I’m not the kind of mom who makes a full blown breakfast every morning for my kid, so this is also very special to Mini Me, to get a fresh breakfast.
I really enjoy getting in the kitchen with my daughter, and when her friends are over, I don’t worry about the mess they’ll make, I just enjoy the fun they’re having making stuff. It brings me back to cooking in the kitchen with my mom, and sitting on top of the counter, stirring bowls and licking spoons.
What I enjoy about this recipe is that it is really easy, and most of the time, I have the items in my pantry and fridge. Plus, it is definitely a mommy/daughter recipe – something she can absolutely help with. Or, in the case of repeating the recipe on Monday, she can do all by herself (minus the oven part).
After baking, let the croissants rest for 5 minutes, and then drizzle the icing on top. Enjoy!
Do I wish there was a photo? Yes.
Did we consume before I realized there was no photo? Yes.
Did these kiddos make these again Monday after school? Yes.
So I guess it was a hit! And so easy, even 11-year-olds can make them (with adult supervision of course).
What special breakfast treats do you enjoy making your kids when friends stay the night, or on the weekends? Leave me a comment below!
