If your children are anything like mine, they will love being your little helper in the kitchen.   I wanted to share a few more really easy recipes children will love to help make and eat!

Marbled Fudge

1 (12 oz.) package semi-sweet chocolate
1 (12 oz.) package butterscotch chips
1 cup peanut butter
1 (10 1/2 ounce) package mini marshmallows
1 cup salted nuts

Combine the chocolate, butterscotch and peanut butter in large glass bowl. Microwave on medium for five minutes, but watch so that it doesn’t burn. Stir until melted. Fold in the marshmallows and peanuts. Spread in a buttered 13 x 9 inch pan. Refrigerate for several hours or until set. Cut into squares.

Baked Stuffed Potatoes

4 baked potatoes
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Wash and bake potatoes at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until softened. Cut cooked potatoes in half, lengthwise. (Use hot pad to hold hot potato) Scoop out meat of the potato and whip with margarine and milk.   Mound back into the potato halves.   Sprinkle with grated cheese.   Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.   Serves 4 to 8.

Porcupine Meatballs (pictured above)
1 pound lean ground beef
1/3 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
dash ground black pepper
1 can condensed tomato soup
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup water

Combine the ground beef, rice, onion, 1/4 cup of the water, salt, and pepper. Shape meat mixture into 12 to 15 balls. Combine soup, chili powder, and water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Add meatballs; reduce heat, cover, and simmer over very low heat for 1 hour. Stir occasionally.
