Like i mean DIRT EASY like virtually no cooking, but looks like you may have put some effort into it. I ask because i want to do a little cooking session with my little niece and nephew but i dont want to do the typical chocolate rice crispy cakes or vanilla cup cakes. Train them to be foodies from young (baby steps though lol)

Not sure about this one if you are trying to encourage children to cook. I think it might teach them to buy ready made packet mixes and assemble them! Sorry - but I have a dislike of things that are not really recipes, masquerading as recipes! I know this isn't your own recipe @Chef00 so I trust I won't offend you!

Banana Chocolate Spring Rolls

1 quart peanut oil, for frying

1 whole banana, quartered

4 whole won ton wrappers

4 teaspoons semisweet chocolate chopped into small pieces or morsels

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

4 ounces caramel flavored ice cream


Directions


1. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees. In a large deep (at least 2 quart) pot.


2. Place 1 piece of quartered banana and several small chocolate pieces at the bottom of the wonton wrapper. Sprinkle with sugar and wet the edges with water. Wrap like a burrito and drop into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown and place on plate lined with paper towels to soak up excess oil until ready to serve.

and another one:

Angel Food Cake Cubes with Berry Sauce

Robin Miller – Food Network Chefs

Ingredients

1 (10-ounce) bag frozen blackberries, thawed or frozen
1 teaspoon cornstarch
½ prepared angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes (enough to make 4 cups)


Directions
1.
In a small saucepan, combine blackberries and cornstarch. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer until blackberries break down, 2 to 5 minutes.

Notes Your favorite berry works Great. I like to use a scoop of ice cream with this.

I'm sure its great but I'm not sure little kiddies together with deep fat frying are a good idea!

No offense taken. No it is not my recipe it is from a cool whip top from YEARS ago. and has been a family favorite for years. Not everything has to be made from scratch to be goo. but if that is what you prefer then by all means skip this one.

I was just coming back to edit this one. this is NOT for the kiddies! I didn't read down far enough to see that you were teaching young kids. Sorry! But definitely skip this one you don't want them anywhere near hot oil!
