Cracker Cookies

I love to cook with the children in the kitchen but I have to be in a certain frame of mind.  Some days I want to create something with them that does not involve a lot of clean up or baking time.  We came up with cracker cookies.  All we did was melt some chocolate chips in the microwave and dipped crackers in the chocolate.  Some were then dipped in sprinkles.   You do have to be very gentle with the crackers but if you are cooking with younger ones you could use pretzel rods instead.  Just lay the dipped crackers on waxed paper on a cookie sheet and pop them in the freezer for a few minutes.

The end result was an enjoyable time together in the kitchen, a lunch box dessert, no baking time and barely any mess to clean up.
