Normally when we bake, we bake from scratch. The downside of this is that little Dubz never gets to join in. The thought of having to measure everything, while making sure he doesn’t tip flour and sugar all over the flour–it does not appeal. So when Betty Crocker sent us some cake and cookie mixes, I thought this would be a good chance to bake with BOTH of the kids.

First off, we made some brownies. Dubz poured in the oil and water, and he loved mixing it all together. Moozles helped him by holding the bowl. I am not sure what they enjoyed more: licking the spoons or eating the brownie after it had been baked.

I wish I had seen the recipe for these Christmas Tree Brownies before we made ours. These are just too cute!

We also made the white chocolate chip cookie mix. These were so easy as all you needed to do was add water. We combined everything, then made half of the mixture. I put the other half in cling film, and left it in the fridge. I made that half the following day, and added dark chocolate chips. I would like to say that I ate the second batch of cookies with my family. But I didn’t. I ate them. All. By. Myself.

Yesterday, as Moozles recovered from her adenoidectomy, we made a vanilla sponge cake from scratch. I then let her use the Betty Crocker icing to frost and add sprinkles to her heart’s content. It wasn’t the kind of cake you’d find on Bakerella but Moozles felt proud. Sometimes, baking isn’t just about a masterpiece. It is about the time spent together. Making something, that makes you feel happy. And proud.

We were sent some boxes of Betty Crocker cake and cookie mixes, as well as icing, for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

  1. Oh wow! They look scrummy!! Massive betty crocker cookie fan here!! I like to make them smaller than suggested on the packet so that when I eat 8 it isn’t the whole lot! lol xx

  2. Hope you’re baby girl’s feeling better now! I saw the pictures on Instagram of her in the hospital and my heart went out to you. xx

    Okay, lets talk about these delicious looking sweet treats! They look amazing, I’ve never tried any of Betty’s kits but am now very keen. I’ll definitely be checking out the cookie kit. And like you, I’d be happy to polish them all off myself!
