Cooking with Kids: S'more Cone holds taste of Halloween

Thursday, October 30, 2003

In the summer reading program, Alex would read cookbooks, searching for new recipes. "I got this [recipe] from one of them," he said.

Alex Bowman

Alex has been cooking for three years, according to his mother. "He has been concocting things since he was 4," she said.

This recipe reminded Alex of the S'mores that he makes with Cub Scouts.

He encourages other kids to cook. "Cooking is great because it is just like science that you get to eat," he said.

This recipe will help you use up some of your Halloween candy.
