I love to bake with my kids. They are at the age where they love to “help” and be in the kitchen. They are just old enough to learn some kitchen basics and just young enough to where they’re a lot of trouble and in my way when I’m trying to get something done. Even though having some extra hands usually increases my time in the kitchen, I think it’s important to let kids learn kitchen skills. You can teach lessons about nutrition, safety, measurements, and more. You can really talk to your kids without being distracted by electronics.  And, it teaches them independence. As much as I like to believe my boys will always be little, someday they’re going to grow up and leave me and I want them to know their way around the kitchen. Easy to make and fun to eat recipes like these Chewy Walnut Squares are perfect – in fact, this is an awesome starter recipe for a young baker.

    1. I’ve never tried to make them with white sugar before…I don’t imagine the taste would be that different but it would probably impact the lovely brown color. And, these are really easy, even if you are not that much of a baker.

  1. I’m on a diet and reading blogs like this is not recommended to me! Just kidding. Blogs like this are very nice and informative. I love eating and cooking all kind of food. So, I would love to try this chewy walnut squares. It looks so tasty and yummy. But, I need to finish my diet first! Just kidding, I will make it as soon as possible! Did anyone try it?
