Candy Cane Cheesecake Squares – A FUN kids baking night

Share Button

‘Twas the week before Christmas, I opened the fridge

No treats to be had, not even a smidge.

The stockings were hung, the lights full of glares

But what would we do without any squares?

So I called the 3 bakers, their eyes were aglow

“We know how to fix this” they giggled, “We KNOW!”

So I pulled out the bowls and the spoons and the butter

And suddenly their three little hearts were a flutter.

Syd grabbed the eggs and Chelsea, the mixers

Charley got the chocolate, they were little fixers

Butter and cream cheese and don’t forget flour

And all their hard work took less than an hour

The oven timer buzzed and we let out a cheer,

Cause the three little bakers saved Christmas this year.

With butter and sugar, Christmas spirit remains

with their cheesecake squares topped with crushed candy canes.
