    Carolyng Gomes

    Valentine’s Day is about sharing the love and the best place to do that is in the kitchen. This year, gather round your favorite little helpers and spend the day in a sweet world of sugar and treats, making kid approved and kid friendly Latin inspired bites. We guarantee these recipes are the perfect way to share the love one laugh, one hug, and one bite at a time.

    Pink Coconut Cake Pops take a bit of time to make but they are worth it. Have the little ones assist by measuring out ingredients and helping you whisk and stir. Instead of using a stand mixer to break up the cake, use their idle hands. Then, what’s better than digging into a bowl of squishy cake and buttercream? Eating it! From covering the pops with chocolate to sprinkling them with coconut, the kids will have a blast!

    Raspberry Dessert Crepes are ideal for older children that can hold the pan. Perfect your crepe-making technique together by allowing them twist and twirl the pan to create thin and light crepes. From adding the food coloring to whipping the coconut cream, let your little chefs run wild with toppings, fillings, and everything in between.

    Almond Agave Thumbprint Cookies are hands on and vegan, perfect for any kids, big and small, with dairy and egg allergies. Give your mixer a rest and let those little hands do the work. And since they are vegan, it's perfectly safe to eat some of the cookie dough - or a lot of it! From mixing the batter to adding the thumbprints, filling the cookies with jam to taste testing them after baking, this recipe is as fun to make as it is to eat.

    Whether you are in the mood for cookies, cake, or crepes, there is no doubt you’ll be making sweet memories in the kitchen this Valentine’s Day and beyond.
