Chocopuffs is what is cooking today guys. I had so much fun in the kitchen with my kiddies putting a delicious twist on our everyday puff puff recipe. But before you read any further, note that this is not a meal you should consume regularly as it is high in carbohydrates, fats, and calories.
If you are new to puff puff, it is simply a deep-fried dough made from flour, sugar, salt, and water. Here is my simple but extremely delicious choco puffs (chocolate puff puff) recipe which forms the basis for this twisted version. So on Saturdays, I am usually in the kitchen with my kids just like I was trained, I want both my daughters and son to learn how to cook at a young age. We’ve got to catch ’em young right?
So whenever I am doing something out of the ordinary, I love involving my kids, asking them questions and triggering their minds to think out of the box. Cooking with my kids also serves as a learning moment.
My son measured out all the ingredients for this choco puffs, counting each spoon of sugar and flour while my daughter did the mixing during which we talked about the importance of each ingredient.
That’s how my mom taught me. Pushing me to think out of the box and making use of what I had available. So most often, cooking was more of using my initiative, creativity and working with what I had on hand to create something delicious the whole family could enjoy. Here’s to my wonderful mom who pushed me to develop, create and enjoy the process.
