Recently, I’ve been scouring the internet for good recipes for family home evening treats, and I think I found the tip top super dooper best one of all (at least, until I find one better…):
They’re called Rolo Pretzel Turtles, and they are the most amazing desert I’ve found yet. I’ve made them twice (they’re not that hard to make) and both times, they’ve turned out fantastic. Now, this may seem a little trivial, but I’ve always thought that one of the best parts of fhe is the treats, because it helps bring everyone else just a little bit closer right after the lesson has finished, and kind of helps it to all sink in, usually in a nice gooey, chocolatey mess.
Now, one interesting thing I’ve found is that the treats need to be just that: treats. If you have them all the time, it takes away the kind of special place they hold as a Monday night mainstay. The other part of that is that they shouldn’t be viewed as rewards for suffering though another FHE lesson, but rather a part of the whole experience, and something to be looked forward to on terms equal to the lesson and activity.
So, what are some of your favorite tasty treats?
