Kids in the Kitchen – Gobble Up Dessert Recipe

I wish I could say it wasn’t true, but the math equation that comes to mind when I turn the calendar and see Thanksgiving circled is holidays = desserts.  It’s a time when all of those scrumptious, sweet treats associated with fall, Thanksgiving and family traditions are brought to the table in one fell swoop. It’s never about the ‘one’ dessert; it’s about a whole table full of them – apple pie, pumpkin pie, chocolate cream pie, apple crisp and whatever else someone is bringing his year.  And let’s be honest, you can never take just one piece of one dessert; at least I can’t!  ‘Just a sliver please’ of each one that actually adds up to several desserts by time you (I mean me) are done.  And then there’s the kids table.  My guys are always in for the apple and chocolate cream pies, but they leave the pumpkin to everyone else.  Over the years, I’ve made it a priority to provide a selection of fun, kid-friendly foods that they can help create.  Here is one of our favorites, but make extras because the adults love them too.  In my house, they are called Gobble Ups not just because you can turn them into little turkeys, but because you can’t help but to gobble them up!

Kids in the Kitchen – Gobble Up Dessert Recipe by Jodie Fitz

Mini fillo cups, thawed

4 oz. Price Chopper low fat cream cheese, softened

Β½ tsp. Price Chopper Vanilla Extract

2 T. Price Chopper Powdered Sugar

3.4 oz. package Price Chopper Instant Vanilla Pudding

1 Cup Price Chopper 1% Low Fat Milk

Chocolate morsels

 In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, vanilla extract and powdered sugar together, set aside.  In a separate bowl, mix the milk and vanilla pudding together.  Add the cream cheese to the pudding and mix.  Fill the fillo cups and set aside.

 In a glass bowl, microwave 3 – 6 oz. of chocolate morsels for one minute.  Stir until all of the morsels have melted and drizzle the chocolate over the cream filled pastries.  Chill before serving.

 Added fun:  Using a permanent marker, draw feather shapes and turkey heads onto waxed paper.  Flip the paper, marker side down, onto a non stick baking sheet; the waxed paper is transparent and you will still be able to see the design.  Fill in your designs with melted chocolate morsels, following the melting directions in the recipe.  Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator and let the chocolate set.  Simply add three feathers and a head to your mini cups and serve.
