Dessert Quesadillas #kidsinthekitchen

The kids like elaborate desserts at home. Make your own sundaes and homemade strawberry shortcakes usually top their list. This are delicious but I sometimes crave something a little different. Quesadillas are a regular lunch for us so I asked Shae and Shaun to come up with some Dessert Quesadilla ideas.

I pulled out ingredients that I thought would fit well into a dessert theme and let them create their own treats.

Shaun was first. He loves chocolate covered strawberries so he went with sliced strawberries and chocolate chips. He made it almost all by himself. I helped with flipping the quesadilla and moving it to a plate but he manned the stove pretty well.

Shae went with  my favorite combination, S’mores.  She wasn’t as confident at the stove but was able to help quite a bit.

The final one was made for dad; bananas, chocolate chips and crushed salted cashews.  He loved it.  This is something we are going to keep experimenting with, coming up with new combinations and ingredient ideas.

  4. hey i never thought of using tortillas that way! sure looks yummy! and thanks for the party too 🙂

    • we eat them all the time for savory dishes and instead of bread for sandwiches. I guess I should’ve mentioned I used a touch of butter and sprinkled sugar on them too 🙂

    So cute and not terribly unhealthy! Doesn’t look messy either – a must for me when working with kids in the kitchen. They also look like something we could do camping! Thanks for the great idea!
