Bears in a Bubble Bath

These little cakes are purely for fun, purely for my children. They do taste good enough for adults to devour them too, in case you are wondering. I had found the recipe a while back on and knew I’d have a reason to make them eventually. My reason turned out to be a moms’ night in {including kids} because our husbands were going to a movie and it’s always more fun to hang out with your kids as a group on a Friday night instead of home alone. I was in charge of dessert and this is what I chose to make. 

My kiddos were practically crazy with excitement when they saw me unpacking my bag of goodies to make these. They were fast and easy to prepare. Caleb and Hannah helped me count out and place the marshmallows and Teddy Grahams on top of the mostly baked mini cupcakes before they went back in the oven a couple more minutes to finish baking. And of course they {along with my friends’ children} happily helped eat them! These are a winner for sure when you are searching for a kid-pleasing dessert.
