The other day while I was busy doing some work, Ayra came to me and requested to bake cookies.
I felt bad to turn down her request because we haven’t been baking for weeks, but I had a deadline and couldn’t be spending an hour making cookies with my girls (yes it usually takes that long), so I suggested we make something easier and a lot quicker instead. Milo toast!
She agreed upon hearing the word “Milo”.
And suddenly my tummy was rumbling and I was salivating. Oh man… Milo toast.
My mom used to make Milo toast for me when I was a kid. She would drizzle sweetened condensed milk on sliced bread and topped it with a thick layer of Milo. The slightly crunchy, sweet and chocolatey malt in every bite was so heavenly! I had them for breakfast and as my snacks for like everyday. It used to be my favorite food when I was a kid and I haven’t had it for awhile now. Time to introduce it to my girls!
I wanted to make it a bit more fun for them and more like a baking activity, so I added a little twist to the Milo toast-making.
Anndddd…. instead of using sweetened condensed milk, we spread cream cheese on the toast… because cheese makes everything better! And umm well, because we don’t have sweetened condensed milk at home. Heh.
It only took 10 minutes to make these and everyone was happy.
Probably the quickest “baking” project ever!
